Could anyone please tell me how honey prices are ruled, how are they established and where could I look price behavior over time?
I live in Mexico and starting a small commercial operation. For orange blossom honey one could get up to 4 USD / kg (bulk) and for other honeys only about 1.5 USD / kg. I understand that orange blossom honey is one of the best out there, but the difference seems too high for me. For that price I prefer to let the bees have it than sell it. I donīt understand why the packers / bottlers make such price differences (and why do bee keepers accept it) if in the supermarket there are no considerable differences in price between honeys.
