I keep on reading on how big of a threat transshipped Chinese honey is. They try every trick in the book and some of them are pretty obvious. Honey coming in from places that don't have the hives to produce the amount being shipped. Barrels labeled as syrup or something else. It just seems that every time someone blows the whistle it's not really taken seriously. Or that's the way it seems. The Chinese government isn't going to do a thing about it. It's not in their best interests to. Money coming in means money for the government. Our Government isn't going to do anything about it because cheap honey benefits the packers. It does so more ways than one. Cost of supply. They pay .75 cents a pound for the cheap stuff as opposed to the domestic stuff. Importing the honey serves to keep domestic prices down. I commend anyone who makes a decent living just selling honey to the packers. The big question is why isn't the Government really doing something about this? Why doesn't the AHB try to protect U.S. Beekeepers? It seems to me that they have lost their way. Why haven't U.S. Beekeepers banded together and screamed about their livelihood being whittled away bit by bit?
