Summary

Only mature honey can be extracted from the hive. (Bioland production standards, 4.10.3 Honey, 4.10.3.1 Harvest)

Difference

The BIOLAND standard is more precise. The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not explicitly require only mature honey to be extracted. However there is a general requirement of an adequate harvest of bee products.

Justification

In order to ensure the high quality of the honey and to avoid problems arising as a consequence of i.e. a high water content of the honey.
