They buy it at wholesale price, mix it with everything else they've got, and sell it for a mark up either to a retailer or jar their own and sell it themselves. Its good if you produce tons of honey as they are a stable and consistent buyer that you can offload your entire harvest in one go. Quite the price hit though, poor on the margins.
