Goals of the fledgling center include:

            • Expand research and education concerning nutrition, health, quality and appreciation of honey

            • Develop useful information for California’s agricultural bounty that depends on insect pollination

            • Help the honey industry establish labeling guidelines to guarantee pure and unadulterated varietal honey

            • Coordinate a multidisciplinary team of experts in honey production, pollination and bee health

            • Promote the use of locally procured honey in the home, food industry and restaurants.
