    What is an acceptable margin

    if you think the mark up on honey a theft, try analyzing the price of fuel. what gets me is at the market honey is the same price as it is in the supermarket. explain that one!

    Mpi & Asure Quality limits hive numbers

    And definitely not the way of controlling interest either.
  9. Hi all. What is this I hear that MPI in conjunction with local councils, they are looking to restrict numbers of hives to a a square meterage. In the case I heard it was 1 hive per hectare. Yes you read correctly. And each hive must be clear of any boundary by at least 30 metres. This info came from a discussion of northland bee keepers meeting. The people leading this meeting were from MPI and asure quality. I must also say i was not present, the info came from my father so forgive me if i have muddled some peoples titles. I also have not been able to find info on line about this. Apparently this was the first public meeting about this. It's submission time people and there is some serious questions that need to be asked and answered. My personal view is its its going to drive a scenario of licenceless hives and pander to the likes of comvita. Thoughts?
