In 2021, the Iyanola Apiculture Collective, with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP), hosted the country’s first honey show. The aim of the Hewanorra National Honey Show is to support the development of the local honey sector by providing a forum which will raise the standard and profile of St. Lucian honey.
The 3rd Hewanorra Honey Show, which is going to bigger and better than past shows because this year, we are expanding the competition to include beekeepers from across the Eastern Caribbean.
With the support and cooperation of the OECS Secretariat, Saint Lucia Ministry of Agriculture and GEF SGP UNDP (Saint Lucia), we will be opening the competition to sub-regional entries from our sister islands of St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, St. Vincent & The Grenadines and Grenada.
This third event represents the first forum for Eastern Caribbean Beekeepers to ply their products, exchange on various beekeeping techniques and of course, compete for prizes for best honey, wax, and other associated categories.
