Honey consumption per person in the world on average and by country in 2022

A glass jar of raw honey

In this article, we will find out what is the average amount of honey consumed by a person in the world in 2022. We will use statistical data from FAOSTAT, Trade Map, UN Population Division.

Top 30 countries by honey consumption in 2022

Top 30 countries by honey consumption in 2022
Source: FAOSTAT, Trade Map, UN Population Division.

The leader in honey consumption per person in 2022 is the Central African Republic (3.12 kg). It seems surprising, but based on the data on honey production, the lack of honey exports and imports in the Central African Republic, and the number of people, we get this figure. In second place is Greece (2.46 kg), in third place is Lithuania (2.25 kg.) Further in descending order are the countries in the table.

Method of calculation

To calculate honey consumption in 2022, we take the data on honey production (FAOSTAT), subtract the data on exports and add the data on honey imports (Trade Map). We divide this sum by the number of inhabitants in the country (UN Population Division). As a result, we get the amount of honey consumed per person. Of course, it should be recognised that there may be some inaccuracy in the data provided by countries. But nevertheless, we have no other data, and we proceed on this basis.

Average global honey consumption per person in 2022.

If we take the data on honey production based on FAOSTAT and the number of people on earth based on UN Population Division in 2022, we get: 1,830,767,920 kg / 7,813,180,807 people = 234 grams of honey consumed by an average person per year.
