Both Australia and New Zealand are big agricultural countries. Although beekeeping is only a small part of Australian animal husbandry, the quality and flavor of honey are the highest in the world. Australian government attaches great importance to the development of beekeeping and regards beekeeping as an indispensable part of modern agriculture. Importantly, in 1963, Australian Government established the National Honey Administration and set up branches in each major honey producing state to supervise and control the export of honey and improve the quality of exported honey.
Meanwhile, New Zealand as one of the most developed countries in the world for beekeeping, each year produces 12,000 tons of honey, 50% of which is exported. And they are sold in more than 40 countries. The unique natural environment, mild and humid climatic conditions and vast pastures, woodlands and shrubs enable New Zealand have good beekeeping conditions. And beekeeping has become an important part of its agro-industrial production in NZ.
