The beekeeping industry contributes indirect income of 4.7% of the GDP of South Africa. At least 80% of the country’s fruit and vegetation is pollinated by the African bee. Many fruit growers obtain up to 100% more yield in a crop by utilising the services of beekeepers in the pollination process.
There is currently a domestic shortfall of honey production which means more beekeepers are needed to fill the gap. From hobbyist to commercial farmers, everyone contributes to the industry as well as the protection of bee populations in South Africa.
