Quality Polish honey commands prices up to PLN 60 per liter, contrasting starkly with Ukrainian counterparts priced at only PLN 15. The Kurpie Brotherhood warns of a crisis as 10,000 tons of imported Ukrainian honey flood the market, threatening local apiaries. These imports, produced on vast industrial scales with lax regulations, raise concerns about quality and sustainability.

Ukraine isn't alone; China also contributes to Poland's honey imports, making up 90% of the market. Labeling changes, set for April, aim to improve transparency, revealing the origin of honey blends. Despite rigorous testing, concerns persist over the safety and authenticity of imported honey.

With Polish honey consumption surpassing local production, imports are necessary to meet demand. However, this dependence highlights challenges in balancing market dynamics with preserving domestic beekeeping traditions.
