ABSTRACT
Bee honey produced in organic apiculture conditions should be natural, without contaminations and with the product-specific quality traits. Available sources specifying the requirements for organically produced honey lack some specific details related to the processing, storage and sales of the product. Factors, influencing the quality of organic bee honey are described. More specific requirements to the processing and storage conditions, and shelf life of this unique food product are proposed with regard to preservation of its natural physical, chemical, organoleptic and antibacterial quality traits.
