Honey making in Lebanon has a triple advantage: economic (providing an alternative income source for farmers in the Akkar region), environmental (as bees are essential to cross-pollination, even spreading the seeds for food crops to grow) and health benefits (local honey is held to have many benefits from cold prevention to allergy relief). Each cooperative member received 2 metal cages, each of which included 10 frames of bees – to a total of 90 cages with 900 wooden frames.
