By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Forty-four participants are engaged in a bee training workshop organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise (MAFSE) in collaboration with the Mexican Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AMEXCID).

This follows a honey industry evaluation held last week for the Orange Walk and Corozal districts.

Experts, Doctors Rodrigo Medellin and Priscilla de la Torre conducted the evaluation session and are now conducting the sessions.

The participants include 8 MAFSE technicians, 2 Resilient Rural Belize technicians, 2 teachers from the Belize High School of Agriculture, 15 students from the University of Belize and 17 Beekeepers.

Sessions are focused on Bee Biology, Beekeeping Management, Good Practices for the Production, Management and Packaging of Honey (BPPMyEM), Traceability of honey, Diversification of the different by-products of the hive, and the Impact of Climate Change on Beekeeping, Rearing Queen Bees, and Prevention and Control of the main diseases in Bees.

This project aims to revitalize the bee and honey industries in Belize.

AMEXCID works hand in hand with MAFSE as both countries pursue bilateral cooperation agreements.
