Garibay, Salvador V. and Vandame, Rémy (2011) Organic beekeeping in Mexico. Paper at: Apimondia - First World Conference on Organic Beekeeping, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria, 27 - 29 August 2010.
Mexico is often described as a cornucopia, a land with high diversity in ecosystems, crops, fauna and flora.
These are superb preconditions for organic honey production. Already the pre-hispanic Maya cultures produced honey from the native stingless bee (Meliponini) before the Spanish introduced European honey bee (Apis mellifera L). The main beekeeping product in Mexico is honey. Mexico ranks sixth in the world in honey production (57,000 t) and third as an exporter (25,000 t).
