Honey is new secret weapon to fight crime

Greek honey will become a diet staple for police cadets in training at academies as part of an effort by the government and the honey industry to boost the product’s sale. Honey producers and the Agricultural Development and Food Ministry agreed during talks yesterday that honey will become a regular fixture on the tables of police colleges. Honey is already a regular part of the diet of Greek soldiers. Officials also agreed that checks for adulterated honey would increase and that some money from the European Union’s Fourth Community Support Framework would be invested in the Greek honey industry. In an effort to improve the profile of Greek honey, officials agreed that a special event will be held in November to promote the product.
