A study tour of Dhaka honey value chain
The Sundarbans is very rich in natural resources and is home to many rare flora and fauna. Some of the plants have flowers that attract honeybees creating a jungle filled with beehives. Traditionally, poor communities living around the Sundarbans collect the honey between April to June with permission from the government. But they earn very little money to pay their annual debts because of the interference of middlemen and lack of effective marketing system.
