Agriculture and food production make up a very large business sector in Scandinavia. Beekeeping is a natural part of this sector. Some areas are intensively farmed, so it is crucial that we create a state of constructive coexistence between nature and agriculture. You will find great initiatives to improve better conditions for all types of bees in the farmed areas.
Organic farming is strongly in focus, also among consumers, and in terms of market share the proportion of organic products sold is the highest in the world.
Bee pollination plays an important role in a very big seed production but also in other significant sectors, including horticulture, orchards, and flowering vegetable-oil crops.
