Honey Processing and Collecting Centres in East Africa

The bee hives commonly used by traditional beekeepers in Central Africa consist of one chamber, which makes it necessary for the bees to keep the brood, pollen and honey together. Whenever honey is taken out of this type of hive, the honey, wax, pollen, brood and propolis are removed in one mass. The mixture of all these elements together makes it almost impossible to obtain a pure, marketable product.
