Summary in English
In 2014, Canada's honey industry recorded a positive trade balance of 18.6 million dollars, which is 46 percent less than the previous year's balance. This marks the second consecutive year since 2012 that Canadian exports have decreased. The downward trend is driven primarily by the decrease in exports to the United States that has been seen over the two-year period. The United States has, however, remained the largest export destination, importing over 32 million dollars of Canadian honey in 2014, which accounted for 63 percent of Canadian honey exports.
