Due to a number of factors, “Altai honey” is a branded product. The article describes factors that affect the quality and safety of honey in the Altai Territory. Honey samples taken in different municipal districts of the Altai Territory were tested. It was concluded that organoleptic indicators, quality and safety indicators, the presence of toxic elements, radionuclides and medicines correspond to the regulatory documents. Counterfeit honey is not supplied to the markets and food fairs of the region; however, there were honey samples with poor physical and chemical characteristics, which indicates the early harvest of honey and the untimely use of means for preventing and treating infectious diseases in bee colonies. The well-being of apiaries is registered in veterinary and sanitary passports, which are issued by the state veterinary service in agreement with the owner. The epizootological monitoring revealed that among infectious diseases, nosematosis, aspergillosis and varroatosis are more common.
