Conditioning of honey bought from beekeepers

By Herve Millet | Founder

Pressing the raw honey
Pressing the raw honey

On our last report we have shown the collect of the harvest of raw honey in the villages.

This raw honey purchased by our association to the beekeepers at a fair price needs to be conditioned before to be sold. For this harvest we bought over 1.000 kg of raw honey.

The separation between honey, wax and residues is done in 2 steps. The first step is to press the raw honey to extract as much honey as possible. It is a bit like pressing a sponge. The leftover of this operation is then placed under a glass plate in the sun to melt the wax and get some additional honey.

The honey is then kept for at least 30 days in plastic containers until it is conditioned and labelled in glass container. The honey is then ready for sale.

The wax still needs to be refined before it is sold mainly to artists making bronze statues using the “loss wax method”.

Finally the residues of this process can be used as fertilizer. Nothing is lost.

The revenues which women gets from this activity is very important to help them go through medical and education expenses of the family.

The women who have got hives thanks you for your support.

Many more women are asking us for hives!!! Thanks to promote this project around you.
