Re: Really raw honey aggravation
So true Michael. I have even put a label on comb honey which I sold which read "The Only Truly Raw Honey".
As someone who sells honey I have found that I have to market my honey and not worry what other people do. Stand behind your product. Explain to your customer, the store owner, what you have and how it is made and that you stand behind what you say. You are not responsible for what others do and say.
I know it is frustrating, but you don't have to be frustrated. Sell your own product.
I have helped a friend put up Really Raw Honey. I don't know how they get away w/ such a product. But they have established a market and an impression of what Raw Honey is and looks like. It is what it is and there are plenty of people out there who will buy your Raw Honey w/out wax chunks and bee parts. I bet you will sell all you put up.
Raw honey is easier for the end consumer to use if it is in a round jar rather than a queenline jar. My observation.
