  1. Hi there First time poster so apologies if I am asking this question in the wrong place. I'm looking for advice on how best to go about selling honey both domestically and for export, based on the following circumstances: My partner and I have family that look after a couple of hives each (probably about 5-10 hives across the country). At this stage it's just a hobby that we like to help with. None of the extraction, processing or bottling is certified or done under proper regulation in any way. Of course, this means that we also don't sell the honey and simply share it amongst ourselves. We would like to change that. Most of our honey is made in the Waikenae/Wellington region, so we would like some advice on how to go from 'hobbyist' to producing honey that is regulation compliant and ready for commercial sale. For example, I understand that the honey must be extracted in a certified kitchen. Is anyone aware of somewhere in Wellingont that this can be done? Alternatively, we're interested in the private label/resale side. As you can see, we aren't producing a lot of honey with only a few hives. Ideally we would like to up the volume if we get into selling commercially. Is it possible to supplement our existing honey with honey purchased wholesale? What are the minimum order quantities for a bulk buy, and will that honey come pre-packaged and processed? Unfortuantely, we don't know any one that has "walked this path" before so we feel a bit out of our depth. Is anyone aware of mentors that are able to help with this sort of thing? I feel like something as simply as a a chat with someone who has experience with this would make a world of difference to us at this point. Really appreciate any advice, Thanks
