A Sign of Prosperity and Revival for Iraq!

Apiculture in Mosul has reached a new record level of honey production since the occupation of the city by ISIS in 2014 of 48,000 kilograms in 2018. Since 2014, large numbers of farms were destroyed across Nineveh.

There are around 800 beekeepers in Mosul and surrounding Nineveh who produce honey for local markets across Iraq. In 2014, many of the beekeepers fled the city or had their farms destroyed by ISIS. The reviving of the honey production contributes directly to the revival of the agricultural sector and local markets, also providing more jobs in the city.

The price rates of honey in Mosul between 37 to 75 per kilo.
