The recent surge of interest and investment by small farmers in beekeeping and honey production reflects growing understanding of the various uses of honey, and increased demand from local and international markets. This set of papers from a 1995 conference, organised by the Netherlands Expertise Centre for Tropical Apicultural Resources (NECTAR), provides a timely overview of various harvesting techniques, quality control methods, medicinal properties and traditions, and marketing aspects for tropical honeys. Case studies come from four continents and include the African countries of Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania. Included, too, are resource guides to (fair) trade in honey products. This is a valuable working reference book for those interested in honey as a food product, and those working in bee development programmes where honey marketing is a vital element. Production of the book was supported by the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Perspectives for honey production in the tropics.
