In this month’s newsletter we discuss various events, bee viruses and the issue of Manuka Honey fraud. New Zealand’s NZ$120-million Manuka honey sector is in crisis as tests around the world find the product often has nothing but price to set it apart from other honey. All Manuka honey comes from New Zealand and Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association research shows 1,700 tonnes produced each year. However, 1,800 tonnes of “Manuka” honey is sold in Britain alone each year with as much as 10,000 tonnes sold worldwide.
We have also published our upcoming club meetings which we hope you’ll be able to attend.
