Argentina, which is constantly challenging China as the world's largest honey exporter, last year exported 99,000 tonnes of honey for 146 million, a decline of six percent in volume but an increase of 15 percent in revene reflecting higher prices for the product.

In 2005 Argentina had sold abroad 106,000 tonnes of honey for 127 million dollars, the Senasa phytosanitary agency said. The main destinations for Argentine honey last year were Germany (32,000 tonnes for 45.5 million dollars), the US (27,600 tonnes for 43 million dollars), Britain (9,100 tonnes for 13.2 million dollars), Italy (7,600 tonnes for 11 million dollars) and Spain (5,900 tonnes for 8.4 million dollars). Other destinations included France (5,500 tonnes for 7.93 million dollars), Belgium (2,900 tonnes for 4.3 million dollars), Canada (1,900 tonnes for 3.1 million dollars), Japan (1,900 tonnes for three million dollars) and Saudia Arabia (1,300 tonnes for 1.7 million dollars).
