Honey, I’m home

Honey was the second most popular bread spread in Germany after marmalade or jam. Bread with honey is a beloved breakfast component or generally one of the population’s favorite snacks. Honey is also used in many products sold in Germany, such as gingerbread and honey cakes.

Buzz value

Being an animal product, it is important to consider how bees are treated in order to gain honey and what manufacturing conditions are like. Increasing attention is devoted from beekeepers and consumers alike to how honey is produced and distributed. Encouragingly so, sales volume figures for certified fairtrade honey have gone up in Germany, especially between 2012 and 2017. In Europe, the countries with the most organic beehives were Bulgaria, Italy and France.
