Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair | HELPING TO KEEP NSW HONEY FLOWING
They’re one of our sweetest producers but the effects of the current drought have made it difficult for beekeepers to produce honey.
To ease the burden on our apiarists, the NSW Government has waived another agricultural fee to assist those affected by drought, with commercial beekeepers on public land set to benefit.
Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair said as an avid hobby beekeeper himself, he understands how tough the drought can be on bee populations and pollen availability.
NSWAA President, Mr Neil Bingley | FRAUDULENT HONEY CLAIMS
Australia produces the best clean green honey in the world, of that there is no doubt, and NSW Apiarists are leaders in this field. Our message is clear, we want consumers to continue to support Australian Bee Keepers by purchasing Australian Honey.
AHBIC Chairperson, Mr Peter McDonald | STATEMENT OF RECENT FRAUDULENT HONEY CLAIMS
The Australian honey bee industry is a small industry with a BIG impact. The Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC) believes wtih 100% pure Australian honey, we have the absolute best honey in the world.
The whole beekeeping community is disapopintd witht eh allegations of adulteration int he Australian retail honey market and is keen to reassure custoemrs that this is a question about imported honey, not Australian honey. Australian honey is safe and not under question. Australian honey should be trusted.
