    Default organic honey at publix

    add in paper read publix greenwise market Organic honey. (usda organic) it is by billy bee honey products ltd toronto canada. when I went to billybee.com they said that they use honey from many farms is it easyer to have canadian honey certified organic by the USDA than it is for honey here in the united states?

    They are just a bottler, they are buying it from US producers and bottling it for US sale. If you look through their products the organic honey is under US labels.

    I am pretty sure that the USDA cannot certify non-US products.
    Always question Conventional Wisdom.

    If you look really close you will see that billy bee company was bought by I believe it was Nabisco but my brain just had a brain fart so am completely lost about who bought them. So really it is just another US company now.

    If you look even closer you will see it is Chineese honey blended with American honey.
