Cooperative Research Centre for Honey Bee Products

Low prices for honey bee products originating from Australia do not reflect their true value as unique and pure. Endemic flora, together with regulated isolation, has created the opportunity to produce rare honey bee products from healthy bees, and develop a niche market.

This federally funded Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) will resolve industry problems that limit both the value and expansion of the Australian honey bee products industry. The CRC will also contribute to disease insurance policies to address a major global threat to our Australian honey bees.
