Apis cerana is the native bee species of Uttrakhand being reared by local people from ancient times. Uttrakhand hills are peculiar for its richness in floral biodiversity including a variety of medicinal and aromatic plants in addition to cultivated agricultural crops. Apis cerana collects nectar from flowers of all these plants to prepare honey with added medicinal properties.
Further, this area is completely free from any kind of chemical pollution, as the agricultural practices are mostly organic. Thus the honey produced is free from any kind of chemical contamination unlike other agriculturally developed areas where agro-chemicals are used in large quantities. This honey has already been certified as Organic by Uttarakhand State Organic Certification Agency (USOCA). DNPPCL is providing technical inputs to the community to enhance production and productivity through eco-friendly means to get organic produce.
