International Survey on Honey Consumption and Consumer Perspectives on Beekeeping

International Survey on Honey Consumption and Consumer Perspectives on Beekeeping

The EU beekeeping research project B-THENET (Bee Stronger Together) is announcing the launch of a comprehensive questionnaire aimed at gathering valuable information about the honey consumption habits of European consumers and their views on modern and sustainable beekeeping practices. This survey is a crucial step in achieving the project's primary objective of collecting good beekeeping practices and innovations, fostering discussions among beekeepers, advisors, and other stakeholders.

The questionnaire is being distributed in the 15 European countries, where the B-THENET project partners are located. It covers a wide range of topics, including honey consumption patterns and preferences, purchasing habits, as well as consumers' interest in beekeeping and their opinions about sustainable beekeeping practices. The University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy in Košice is responsible for the data collection in Slovakia. By actively participating in this questionnaire, domestic honey consumers can contribute to building strategies fostering the European beekeeping ecosystem.

The questionnaire is available online at the following link (English version): https://forms.office.com/e/0EJf61JgAF. The questionnaire can be completed in approximately 8 minutes, making it a quick and convenient way to contribute to this essential research.

Once the survey is completed and analyzed, the consortium will publish the findings, making the data openly accessible to all interested parties. This transparency ensures that the research outcomes can drive positive change and support sustainable practices across the European beekeeping industry.

We urge all European consumers to take part in this survey and help shape the future of beekeeping and honey consumption in the region. Your participation can make a significant impact on the development of a thriving and eco-friendly beekeeping ecosystem.
