"Honey producer Comvita is predicting a $6 million after-tax loss for the financial year after a series of setbacks has affected its business.

On Monday its share price tumbled 11.7 per cent to $3.70, its poorest performance in four years. 

Adverse weather, the overcrowding of mānuka sites with hives from competing beekeepers and the tough mānuka honey standard have combined in a third poor year in a row for the Te Puke-based company."



Comvita shares listed on NZX at $3.25 (at close 24 May).

Some of Comvita’s JV’s haven’t brought anything but more debt to the table, I wonder when they will be cut loose. 

Gotta wonder when they blame overcrowding for their drop in tonnage.

whos overcrowding who :)

Comvitas hives are down every road in my area, even 3 sites on one road with mine and manuka health's just about a stones throw. 

Me and my mate call Panguru beekeepers Lane because there are literally thousands of hives
