Hey there everybody.
Havent been to many forums before :)
Anyway, my father is a bee-lover :) has been all his life I think :) we have a small proprietereship here in Bosnia and now we started producing, I think the english expression is "beehive entrance fitting", there is a picture attached :
I didnt want to post in the general forum thread, I didnt knwo if the rules allowed it... anyway,.. ANY1 here has any experience in producing and exporting beekeeping equipment in other countries in the EU or US? Any ideas? The product itself has gotten great feedback from the local beekeeping experts, my problem now is to find the companies that sell this type of products in large quantities :)
I hope I didnt break any forum rules :)
best wishes to you all,
Azur
Bosnia

I would start researching how to sell it in Europe as shipping will be easier and cheaper.  There are several large European suppliers such as Thorne and Swienty and you could try to convince them of the value of your product.  In this day and age you could even sell your product directly to consumers on the internet.  You just need to work out how to ship and what it will cost for shipping.

Local companies may cost a little more, but you save with shipping.   When crossing through countries, tariff and taxes may increase the cost by a great deal.   Buy local and welcome to the forum.
