Honey production is a significant potential source of food and financial income for the rural population. In order to contribute to the development of the beekeeping sector, it is necessary to produce scientific data on beekeeping in Cote d'Ivoire, which is still insufficient. Among the baoul? of the Central Cote d'Ivoire, a survey was conducted among 156 honey producers. The objective of the study is to list the uses as well as to provide information on the marketing of honey in the baoul? society. Honey is used in the treatment of 28 diseases and symptoms. In total, 57.29% of the honey produced by the rural population is reserved for family consumption and 42.71% for marketing. The selling price of honey is between 1500 and 2125 F CFA per liter. The annual income per traditional or modern beekeeper varies from 375 to 685312.5 F CFA.
