    Rodney Dickens opinion piece

    This dude is off the mark. It would take alot of real manuka to make up to the volume sold of fake manuka. All that showed that the demand was there. They will be pain. Just in non manuka honeys

    What is this?

    Honey Price Collapse

    It being caused by Trump and his ability to piss off every world leader, both friend or foe. He had mistaken American first for America only. The combined force of the world is more powerful than America by itself. You and I could debate this forever ?? i am enjoying it..not sure about everyone else ?? You may be right..however i have history on my side. The nineteenth century saw a range if life changing events and problem yet look how the world prospered. There will be bumps but overall the world will keep truckin along.

    Honey Co-ops

    It great you are thinking about it. It is what happens to the honey once it in the drum that will make the real difference to the return received. One of the keys to making high valued added returns is to have your base product to be very little of the final product. As James say most beekeepers are individuals and do not want to cooperate so a co op is pretty much a dead duck. I predict a few large corporates will take over most of the game and the smaller players will be forced out. They will be able to offer more for manuka sites as it is more valuable to them as they derive an income for more parts of the food chain.

    Great stuff @frazzledfozzle . It is interesting that they are now collecting export data on which honey type since june 2018. The other interesting thing is USA is a far bigger buyer than China

    A trade war is always a threat. I see the opposite as USA retreats from the world. China is smart enough to engage it. Look at the silk road intivite. This is China moment to shine.

    Probably got a pole dancer as the main eye catcher pic. Fits in well with the honey hunter bramd name theme.

    Honey Co-ops

    It should be apparent now to the industry that power of being a brand owner that is has pricing power vs being a commodity producer of honey. Even Manuka is a commodity, well paid at the moment. However think about, how much money produces are leaving the table.

    Honey Co-ops

    @Adam Boot mentioned that there are around 200 different manuka brands in the market...that alot probably to many. There will be alot of market development and marketing money going into it. Not very efficient way to spend the money. It would be alot better if they was one strong brand.

    Honey Co-ops

    Interest take on things. Most people do not want to invest in rebuilding comb..lost honey. Site extraction may no make the cut for export requirements

    Honey Co-ops

    They are out there though a few of my customers have mentioned they belong to them. Unfortunately i did not enquire more at the time. Are they mostly conected to Maori trusts?
