  1. Here is an update as to what went on in the meetings that Bruce held this month across the country. *If you are seriously interested in contributing to the co-op, please fill out the form from the link provided below: https://josieclow.wufoo.com/forms/z17wxm850eqhf17/ Hello again everyone, I hosted the last meeting on Wednesday. And my interpretation of the mood and tenor of all the meetings is “Wow”! I left every meeting with adrenalin pumping through my veins, and on such a high. There is categorically a strong ground swell of commitment to get a honey producers’ co-op up and running. But what excited me even more, a great desire by people to help; to contribute to the work, and to aid those in the industry who are struggling desperately. I met with over 300 people, and I know from the emails of apology that many more would loved to have come, but other commitments prevented them. I expect that some others just didn’t hear about the meetings, or were unsure. So I am asking that those people who are keen to get a co-op up and running, to please contact as many beekeepers in their area as possible. I don’t want anyone who could be interested or has a need to miss out. As I said repeatedly in the meetings, if we all do just a little bit, it will add up to something big! So why have the meetings universally endorsed setting up a honey producers’ co-op? A bunch of reasons! Firstly, honey producers are the only primary producers I am aware of in the country who start their season with no idea of what the price will be for their produce, or whether they can even sell their produce! The co-op would be the one giving pre-season price indications based on their market presence and the pull for product from their overseas customers, and be compelled to purchase their suppliers’ honey. Secondly, the combined might of the productive capacity of the co-op members gives them a voice with both the government and in the industry. The members through the co-op would no-longer be price takers, but price makers. Thirdly, harking to the moral and ethical reasons for beekeepers to associate through the co-op, it gives an opportunity to help each other and recognise need amongst the members. Refer to John Bell’s list (attached) where the co-op members can organise help to injured or ill beekeepers when that happens. Fourthly, it ensures that years of experience and knowledge are not lost! The co-op should and will become family where the older beekeepers who may not have relatives to share their skills with, need not see that expertise lost when they retire. Fifthly, again as per John’s list, the co-op would have buying power that will bring the cost of running their individual businesses down, as well as having the resources to help beekeepers deal with regulations and paperwork. Sixthly, if beekeepers want to exit the industry, the network of the co-op will help them recover value from their businesses and leave with dignity. This will also help prevent large numbers of hives being abandoned and becoming sources of AFB and Varroa to spread to actively managed apiaries. There were many more reasons that came out of the meetings about why a co-op is not only needed but essential if the huge resource of many commercial beekeepers and beekeeping families is not lost. It was also a pretty clear consensus that we go for a national co-op with regional centres. Being national, it will have some serious clout, but through regional centres, it will better be able to organise the use of spare infrastructure capacity, identify local needs, and build regional specialty honey varieties and the stories that will go with them. To move forward, I need a comprehensive list of those beekeepers who are committed and determined to set up a nationwide honey producers’ co-op for the benefit of those producers. The co-op will be entrusted with the marketing, building brands and other intellectual property for and around their honeys, and exporting them as the premium product they are, in an international honey market full of fake, counterfeit and adulterated product. With the list and the associated number of hives represented, John Bell and I will go to see the Honourable Shane Jones and ask for funding from the Regional Development Fund. (Note that both John and I believe we need a critical mass of at least 100,000 hives to get a hearing with the minister.) We are going to ask for $2,000,000 per region. I have named and listed the “regions” below (don’t get upset if I haven’t quite done them right, we’ll get there in the end), so when you send us your details, also tell us what region you are in. There are 15 regions, so we are asking for $30,000,000 total. For those of you in the earlier meetings, you won’t know about John Bell. When John got my email about the co-op meetings he got excited. He was a tutor at Taratahi, and is currently working with some Iwi to help them build their beekeeping businesses. Prior to working as a tutor, he lectured in marketing at the University of Otago’s MBA. He is eminently qualified to help. He was keen to see what I was up to, but couldn’t make the Hastings meeting, so we met the night before. When he showed me his list of things a co-op could offer beekeepers (see the attachment) I knew he had his head screwed on straight. John also has some knowledge of the workings of the Regional Development Fund, and contacts in Shane Jones’ office. Anyways, when I showed John the co-op set up timeline and the despair that caused some beekeepers, John said, “Bruce, we can shorten that timeline! Ceracell has already funded Phase I, and you have done the research with your national meetings and your investigation of co-ops overseas and the previous New Zealand one. Once the meetings are finished we get a list of beekeepers and their hive numbers and we go and see Shane Jones!” So that’s the plan. Those of you who are committed, send us the following info (all information will be treated totally confidentially), and please note that we want total honesty and truthfulness—we want to start as we mean to operate, with integrity at all times: Name(s) Business Name (if any) Apiary registration number(s) Postal address Contact phone number(s) Email address(s) Region(s) location of your business (where your hives are most of the time) Number of hives How much honey you have in storage (in tonnes)? How much honey you can produce in a good year? How much honey you can produce in a poor year? How much honey you can produce in an average year? Will you help as a regional co-ordinator? Are you willing and able to sit on a national steering committee? Is there anything else you can help with? The “Regions”: 1. Southland 2. Otago 3. Canterbury 4. Kaikoura/Blenheim 5. West Coast 6. Nelson/Marlborough 7. Wairarapa 8. Hawkes Bay 9. Gisborne/East Cape 10. Bay of Plenty 11. Manawatu/Kapiti Coast 12. Taranaki/Whanganui 13. King Country/Central Plateau 14. Waikato/Coromandel 15. Northland/Auckland When I get the list back, I expect that there will be more people ready and able to help on the steering committee than we can comfortably manage. We need to progress the co-op as fast as possible, so I don’t want to get bogged down in large committee meetings. I will likely have to come back and find out what the back ground is of each person wanting to help and choose to get a good representation of skills. I think with me, John Bell, an experienced lawyer (possibly Mike Sage), I will want about four or five others. So please, please if you aren’t chosen to be on the steering committee, don’t take offense. No offense would be intended, and everyone will be needed in some capacity at some time. This is not going to be a “political” animal and cannot be if it is going to work. We must treat each other with respect and kindness at all times, even if we disagree as happens in a family. Remember, in the end it is your co-op and you can change things as and when it suits. But to get going now, I will be making some executive decisions with expert advice. Once the legal entity of the co-op is established with the rules for governance in place, you, collectively, can change things as and when you like. I am waiting for those emails now. So decide if you are in as a founding member or not. After this email, only those who have replied and said “Yes, we are committed to make a co-op happen” will be kept in the loop. (If you don’t have an email address, post in your replies to: Ceracell, PO Box 204184, Highbrook, Auckland 2161.) I need those replies before 5 pm 30 April 2019. Then John and I will total things up, and finish preparing the application for Regional Development Funding. We’re going to Shane Jones as early in May as we can muster a meeting with him. So don’t delay! Send your email to my daughter who is collating all the contacts: josie@ceracell.co.nz Kind Regards, Bruce Clow

    Do you have honey but no buyer in sight, or prices too low to cover costs? Let’s get together and talk about it. Bruce Clow, Managing Director of Ceracell Beekeeping Supplies (NZ) Ltd is travelling through-out the country in April hosting meetings with beekeepers who might be interested in starting a honey producers’ co-op, or looking at other ways to improve the financial returns for commercial beekeepers. Ceracell has always said that we are here “to help beekeepers”, and quite a number of our commercial beekeepers have expressed serious concerns about their ability to sell honey at a price that makes their business viable. Well Bruce says, “we are here to help”. Let’s see what we can do together. If things look dark and desperate, you are not alone. Come to one of the meetings and we’ll see what we might be able to do together. Also, let your commercial beekeeping friends know about the meetings, just in case they haven’t seen this notice. Topics that we might cover: Is there really a problem? What is a Co-op? What might be involved in setting up a Co-op? Are there other things a beekeeper might do to improve his/her bottom-line? If I want “out” how can it be done and recover value from my business? Is there “hope”? You are not alone! If you think you might like to come to one of the meetings, please email bruce@ceracell.co.nz and leave your contact details. That way Bruce can contact you in case anything untoward happens (such as a car breakdown or illness) which could result in a meeting being cancelled.
