Imported Honey on Trade Me

Recommended Posts

Hi all, found this listing on Trademe tonight.  I thought it was illegal to import honey into Nz from another country. I checked out their website and the honey is either from the USA or Canada.☹️

It is illegal.   Report the listing to Trademe, and to MPI please.

Definitely MPI because to me it looks like she already has the honey.

I think your right, if we don't want it delivered we can pop in and pick it up.☹️

Wow,You people are good.I hope you realise it could be from a New Zealand supplier who packs for Y.S.using their label. I know who used to supply them but do not think he would put an American labelled honey on the shelf.In 2013 when I was exporting to the USA I saw the brand on a shelf in a Christchurch store.I knew who had put it there.When I confronted him he told me he had no labels of his own so used the USA label without asking permission of the label owners,that is the USA customer.

What caught my eye was the horrible looking label, thought it looked like a jar of peanut butter.

even if not imported and was packed for export I doubt that label will meet NZ standards

There were a couple of questions on the website ab.out where the honey was from USA and Canada was the answer. The plot thickens
