A member of the board of the Hungarian Honey Producers’ Association said that the issue at stake is the European import of honey of Chinese origin and not the Ukrainian honey.

Ferenc Fulmer pointed out that although there was a ban on Ukrainian honey imports, there had been no noticeable impact on increasing purchase prices. He further explained that Hungarian beekeepers predominantly sell a substantial portion—around 70-80%—of their honey in EU markets, with honey from non-domestic sources making up 5-10% of Hungarian trade.

Mr. Fulmer emphasized the potential devastation Hungarian producers may have experienced due to the ban on Ukrainian honey imports, as they would have been deprived of raw materials.
