Organic beekeeping and market trends

12.00 – 13.30, Room Riga (in English)

Organic beekeeping represents a great possibility for farmer cooperatives and family-run companies to increase their income.

The aim of this workshop is to inform and discuss the current situation of production and market trends of organic beekeeping products.
