WA honey industry's sweet taste of success

 

"We're fast proving that our jarrah honey and marri [or] redgum honey have high active properties," Mr Davies said.

 

"Everybody knows the manuka story. What's fast becoming the WA story is active honeys."

What we require here in WA is an honest marketing strategy for the active honeys being discovered, our beekeepers need to market their own brand & not ride on the back of all the promotional hard work of the Kiwis in order to be taken seriously in the developing world wide market.

If this Myrtle Rust is as bad as feared you Ozzies mightn't have any opposition for long.

but they've already got it (?).

 

What is myrtle rust?

Myrtle rust is a disease caused by the exotic fungus Puccinia psidii (initially identified as Uredo rangelii). Overseas there are known to be several strains of P. psidii. At this stage Australia has only one strain.

 

Will be interesting to find out which one we have. If different we might end up with the Australian one too.
