PROFITABLE – One of many animals, bees are producers of healthy, nutritious food with high economic value. Bees also produce many types of harvests, namely honey, propolis, nectar and royal jelly.

In Indonesia and internationally, it is very necessary for several types of harvest from bees, with the high demand having driven an increase in the price of honey bee products. However, there are still many people who are reluctant to cultivate honey bees because they believe that cultivating honey bees is a difficult, complicated and dangerous activity because bees have poisonous stings.

Based on these problems, cultivating honey bees without stings is a very attractive alternative for anyone who wants to increase their income or start a business. The popularity of cultivating stingless bees has increased rapidly following information that it improves the welfare of society. These bees can produce 4 times higher propolis compared to Apis bees.

West Papua has honey cultivation which has great potential to advance the economy there, with honey cultivation the workforce there is absorbed more quickly to advance the welfare of the people of Papua.

The Head of KPHP Unit II Sorong, Melkianus su in Sorong, said that he would provide assistance to the forest farmer group (KTH) Makbon District to produce forest honey. And we continue to build cooperation with all parties so that the forest honey products of the Moi tribe community in Sorong Regency can be marketed outside Papua and even internationally.

According to Melkianus su, the honey production process was carried out by KTH Makbon District, while KPHP helped provide product packaging, permits and marketing. Forest honey, a product of the Makbon District Forest Farmers Group, has obtained a permit, a halal label, and is being marketed in the local area.

“This program is a community empowerment program in production forest areas so that people do not completely depend on selling wood because at any time the wood can run out,”


This program aims to ensure that communities are prosperous and forests remain sustainable. The acceleration of honey cultivation will continue to be accompanied by training and collaboration with the government to encourage a good national economy and can be exported abroad.
