Well, we solved: the legend about the price of honey (without)
Israelis are not known to be big consumers of honey, but towards Rosh Hashanah this statistic changes.
Are the honey producers, importers and retailers taking advantage of the pre-holiday "honeymoon" to raise prices?
Here are some figures: the scope of local honey production this year breaks a record and will amount to about 4,400 tons of Israeli honey, according to data from the Honey Council.
The honey is produced by Israeli beekeepers in 120 thousand hives scattered throughout the country.
Its consumption among the Israeli public amounts to about 6,200 tons per year.
An Israeli consumes on average about 250 grams of honey in the month of Tishrei, out of an annual consumption of about 650 grams per person.
The value of bee pollination to agricultural GDP in Israel is approximately NIS 3.5 billion per year.
