Honey of Uruguay
Geographical location and honey production
Uruguay is a South American country, located between Parallel 30 and 35 of South Latitude and Meridians 53 and 58 of West Longitude. It is bordered by Argentine and Brasil and the Atlantic Ocean at the South. It has an area of 176.215 square km, home to 3 millon people, with a density of 19/km2. The landscape features mostly rolling plains and low hills (maximum height 513 mts over sea level). The climate is temperate wet with four pronounced seasons. The main economical activity of the country is agriculture and cattle-raising over natural pasture basis while Eucalyptus and Pine afforestation is taking an increasing importance nowadays. All these activities are oriented to the exportation. In summary, the low industrialization and population density, together with the natural pasture basis of the cattle-raising, make the whole country be excelent for apiculture.
Uruguay produces 12.000 tons of honey annually: 10% is consumed in the internal market and 90% is exported.
In the prairies zones we produce multifloral honeys with excelent flavor and colours varying from White to Amber (25 mm to 85 mm) according to the zone and the year climatic conditions.
In the North and Northeast zones there are wide afforestations of Eucalyptus Grandis used by beekeepers to produce large amounts of monofloral honeys ranging from Extra Light Amber to Amber colours (50 mm to more than 114 mm).
Blue zone: monofloral eucalyptus zone
Yellow zone: multifloral praries zones
We trade noble Products with Love & We do it with Passion!
Our company not only produces honey but also trades the associated producers's too, taking advantage of our personal knowledge of them and the quality of their product. Each honey container of 300 kgs is identified and submitted to a humidity porcentage and Pfund Grader Scale colour analysis. Others analysis can be done according to the client requirements.
Nowadays, Uruguay exports honey to European Union and United States mainly. In the honey trade process there are many mandatory controls to guarantee the quality of the product. In the case of Uruguay, LATU (Uruguayan Technological Lab) makes physical and chemical controls before granting quality certificates to every honey container to be exported.
"We trade natural raw honey unfiltered, unheated with no adulteration.
