Beekeeping Enterprise Development Guide 4. This Guide continues the procedures that the trading company Guiding Hope (Cameroon) developed to operate an export-orientated marketing system for honey and beeswax. The booklet documents all processes involved to meet stringent import requirements for EU markets. The success story of a first shipment of 20 tonnes of honey and 100 tonnes of beeswax to Germany and the UK is told. This case study provides a vivid picture of the shocks, challenges and experiences of Guiding Hope in organising successful export. The result is a doubling of farm gate prices for poor rural beekeepers. These experiences provide good lessons for other organisations aiming to export to the EU.
