... witnessed the presence of honey dealers at the present time. Honey was used to honor the guest and in traditional medicine and daily consumption. With the pace of civilization in the country, modern apiaries were created, including the production of abundant quantities of healing honey, leading to the inauguration of the first factory in the country to produce and export honey.

Honey production in the Emirates is linked to the main seasons and depends on the rainy season. The UAE has been known since ancient times for three types of honey: Al Samar, Al Sidr and Al Ghaf.

Al Samar honey is harvested from April to June, while Ghaf ‘s time is between May and July and Al Sidr honey begins from September to November. The name Ghaf honey was associated with the wellknown Ghaf tree in the Emirates, which abounds in desert sandy areas and can be seen along highways. People used to eat its leaves during periods of drought and lack of rain, where bees graze its flower which was called the “map” in the past. Ghaf honey is characterized by a very high sugar content. The Ghaf is a forked tree famous in mountainous areas and rocky plains. It has many uses: the ancestors used it for food, firewood and shade.

Among the ancient local designations of the plants and trees from which honey was extracted, there is the “earring” tree and the plants of the “Shakaa”, the marsh, the grove, the “Shoua” and the hills as well as other seasonal plants related to the rain fall.

The Eastern coast of the UAE is famous for producing honey, specifically the region of Hatta, Khor Fakkan, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah. The production of honey in the past depended on mountain caves with a rate of 90%. Palm trunks were used in beekeeping and honey production by digging these logs and raising bees inside. Honey is considered a seasonal food that is harvested in three seasons per year and it was thus not a continuous profession.

Evolution of production and apiaries

The development of modern beehives in the 1980s facilitated the manufacturing of honey and its production through bees.

The first honey factory was opened in Hatta in Dubai. The project includes facilities for bee care and production of honey, pollen and royal jelly, within special spaces that allow tourists, visitors and school students to get to know the nectar of the bees. New methods in producing queen bees locally instead of importing them were introduced as well as production and packaging lines that depend on the latest innovative technologies. The factory will also include leading manufacturing industries accompanying honey, such as nuts and chocolate, as well as an exhibition dedicated to selling honey products, within an area that exceeds 100.000 m2. Dubai Municipality has organized the first honey festival. It takes place annually at Hatta Heritage Village.

Beekeepers are showcasing different varieties of natural honey products made in the UAE and the wider region. The festival will include events such as tent shopping, lectures and scientific sessions focusing on the qualities and uses of honey.
