About the Festival

There are Many cities allover the world celebrate annually  honey festivals, such as  California honey Festival in the United States, Streetsville honey  festival in Canada and the Russia Honey Festival. This year we will launch the first edition of the Egyptian Honey Festival as a tourist, recreational, economic, environmental and health event.  The festival aims to raise awareness about  the importance of natural bee honey and other bee products as an important food for the whole family and a stimulant for natural immunity and supportive of good health and child growth .We are  seeking to raise the annual consumption rate of  honey  for Egyptian and Arab citizens,  which recorded by 100 gm annually Unlike the European citizen whose rate of consumption  exceeded 2 kg per year.

Raising awareness will lead to increased demand for bee products. Which will open up new opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of beekeeping. As Egypt is considered one of the few countries capable of beekeeping throughout the year, which qualifies this activity to be a significant investment area reflected positively on the economy and environment at the same time, as the bee is the element of the environment can not be replaced for its primary role in pollination of flowers and increase agricultural production. Einstein pointed to the importance of the bee, saying: “If the bee disappeared from the globe, the human life will last for more than four years.”
