honey offerings in Canada continue to fall, we are are at1.40......I think very little will move at this low balling price, but this will certainly lower these buyers average cost if any is sold at all.
Canadian honey imports for 2009 are up 22% from 2008 ,up to August 2009..... so apparently they got lots of foreign honey to sell,blend
From Bee Culture magazine ,nov. 2009,November price report and 2009 crop estimate.
"This will undoubtedly lead to increases in imports to meet demand, and, with available overall global honey on hand at best average,there will be some probably dramatic price increases.
If you have honey in a tank somewhere this Fall...guard it carefully and sell it cautiously."
Canadian honey broker is quoted as saying that there is so much cheap ,adulterated,imported honey on the US east coast, packed into warehouses that the entire US East coast has sunk and it may actually disappear into the ocean.......prices are reflecting this
"why slander the hand that feeds irwin sioux is the largest most respectable packer in the world."
I was not slandering, the sale of cheap Chinese honey by Sue,it benefits Sue bee's bottom line, their members and most important their customers,this honey is probably going into their industrial market and giving their competition a good run for their money in this market.This industrial market is a major influence on all prices and sets the price for the packed market and the price you and I will receive for our product. Sue selling,Why not, everybody else is doing it, but it clearly will be "good " Chinese honey. Sue has been assessing the Canadian honey market for whats available for export
