Re: Organic Honey is Certified?
I can’t see how it would benefit your business either. I do see a value in defining what you can call honey though. I also see a value in what you can label “Organic” honey with limits set on impurities such as pesticides and chemical crop sprays that you can test for. The GMO thing is an impossible dream to have that eliminated from an Organic honey because there is no way to control it. Because of cross pollination it will eventually be impossible to exclude it from all Organic foods over time.
We've been told (by certifiers) that we should be supporting the effort to pass an organic standard for honey, as this would benefit our business. Our research doesn't support this contention.
