Honey packers & unification

Recommended Posts

Hi

Can I have advise on where to get good prices to buy NZ honey for export.

 

No offence to the OP, but this is exactly the sort of exporter we are afraid of having a vote after unification.

Maybe I'm a bit thick but please explain to me why this is so.

Thanks.

An exporter from Auckland who wants nothing to do with bees and is jumping on the band wagon while they see money, concerned only with price. Clearly have no experience in the industry, otherwise would not have posted. Surely you can understand why beekeepers would not want people like this voting on their industry...

But it's not the bee keepers industry.

It's business.

I hate to say.

What criteria would you like for membership ?

And therein lies the reason for fears of beekeepers regarding unification

Business is business, I agree! That 'sort' of buyers should only bee allowed to buy from packers.

The 'criteria' for voting I would like to see are INTEGRITY and ETHICS!

Specifically with an interest in our bees, our industry and our country! M2cw.

I don't quite agree " buyers should only be able to buy from packers" all beekeepers who have honey which is under RMP extraction and storage can sell to anyone they like. It's up to the buyer to ensure continuity of tracking to be able to export. Restricting the sale of export honey to packers turns the beekeepers into price takers not price setters. (Dha 4000 mgo900 $200kg)

i wouldn't worry about it.

those fly by nighters don't last long and are not around long enough to actually do anything.

theres a few recent stories around of some getting burnt because they simply don't understand whats involved.
