Certain problems

In addition to those mentioned above, the honey sector is not exempt from other human potholes. Among those who stand out his poor regulation and the eternal labeling problem, coupled with the threat of fake honeys. And it is that, as for its label, it should always be clear. That is, you must indicate at all times the origin and mode of elaboration of the product. Always in favor of consumers.

On the other hand, from buzzing honey they ask that the institutions should be clarified in various aspects.

And, finally, another of the demands of the sector is that the controls to detect the quality of the honey must be updated. Therefore, it could be detected earlier fraud.
