Apiculture, one of the oldest industries in the world, has undergone a steady evolution.
The development of technology to support beekeeping and honey production has had a significant and positive impact on the industry.
From hive developments to distribution networks, the global honey industry has seen significant advancements from its traditional agricultural methods.
The honey bee emphasised its importance to global food security and economic security for many countries.
Countries such as Ukraine, Turkey, China, Argentina, the US and Germany nurtured thriving honey networks, with imports and exports influencing their economy.
Trade relations between nations have been significantly influenced by the honey market. The honey industry is valued at more than $1 billion annually, which means safeguarding the quality of honey has become increasingly important.
Randox Food Diagnostics guarantees the quality of honey that is processed and sold worldwide.
Using the Evidence Investigator system, which was developed through extensive R&D with a £200m investment, the screening method can detect multiple drug residues from a single honey sample.
The technology increases both producers and consumer confidence in the quality of honey.
The Evidence Investigator renowned for its accuracy (with a false positive rate of <5%) and reliability, will be on display at the 44th APIMONDIA International Apicultural Congress in Daejeon, South Korea.
From 15-20 September, Randox Food will be connecting with thousands of members of the honey community to showcase technology and celebrate the 150th anniversary of Apimondia.
Randox Food will be in the main hall to see the Evidence Investigator system.
