Owing to the fresh air, both Sam Mun and Nua Ngam communes of Dien Bien district have ideal conditions for honey-collecting beekeeping development. Wild bees are domesticated for keeping, thus the honey quality is equivalent to natural wild honey.

To ensure the long-term development of beekeeping, a group of beekeepers formed the Dien Bien Honey Bee Cooperative in 2019 and steadily marketed the Dien Bien honey brand. This brand is appreciated by consumers due to its high-qualified and unique products.

The cooperative produces four main products: wild flower honey, honeycomb, bee pollen, and royal jelly. The honeycomb, in particular, has been examined and ranked by the Council as a provincial 4-star OCOP-certified product, providing a stepping stone for the brand to grow further and meet the demanding standards of the domestic as well as foreign markets.

The journey to nominate and promote the TOP-BEST best-selling OCOP-certified products in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam is one of the projects implemented under the strategic alliance between the Vietnam Records Organization (VietKings), the USA Records Organization (USKings) and the World Records Institute (WorldMark), with the goal of propagating and promoting the record values of countries worldwide.
