Data from the Central Reserve Bank (BCR) indicates that exports of honey to the three new markets represent 7.1% of total exports to date.
Manufacturers reported a reduction of 70% compared to the previous harvest season and estimate a drop in exports this year.
The country sold $5.2 million in 2009, up from $2.9 million in 2008.
The entry into force of the Association Agreement between Central America and the European Union encourages projects to increase honey production in Nicaragua.
Honey production is facing several problems, and has therefore seen a reduction in exports to the European Union.
