The Contest was born with the aim to promote and enhance the honey produced in Liguria and to improve its quality through the assessment of its chemical-physical and organoleptic features. It is addressed to the beekeepers working in the protected areas of Regione Liguria.
The contest, established in 1999 and promoted by the Agriculture Councillorship of the Province of Genova, is today the result of a positive collaboration between Regione Liguria, the four Provinces, Cinque Terre National Park, and the Park Authorities of Alpi Liguri, Antola, Aveto, Beigua, Montemarcello-Magra, Portofino, and Portovenere Regional Parks.
