The Jendouba region of Tunisia has a population of approximately 400,000 with an estimated 20% unemployment rate. Jendouba is known for its favorable fauna, ecosystem and biodiversity to the development of apiculture. However, for small-scale beekeepers without proper training in beekeeping, achieving high levels of hive productivity that will provide a sufficient income is a challenge.
Thanks to strong technical expertise within its team, CIFEA will provide essential beekeeping training and access to markets to local small-scale beekeepers in Jendouba.
CIFEA plans to collect, distribute, and commercialize its own branded organic certified honey and hive products: It aims to market these organic products locally and internationally.
