Capilano Honey Seek Quality Control

Nov 15, 2017 — Patience is wearing thin for Australian Beekeepers and Capilano shareholders who were previously told this conflict would be over by June.

The ongoing litigious bullying is hurting the Australian beekeeping industry.

Capilano Ltd and CEO Ben McKee have requested a further two weeks to adjourn the case to give more time for us to resolve the conflict.

I note it has also been communicated to me that Capilano Honey have been putting extra effort into quality control by advertising on Seek.com.au for more quality control staff.

Savethebeesaustralia issue is not only with the quality of honey being imported but the fact that imported honey from China , Argentina and Mexico may carry undetectable virus’s, imported honey adds negative pressure to domestic prices and the incentive for young beekeepers to join the industry are diluted.

A prominent Commercial Beekeeper from Queensland contacted Savethebeesaustralia this week to complain about Capilano’s #Allowrie brand not containing country of origin.

“ I went to a mates house he offered me a tea and I watched him put Allowrie honey in it. I explained I could not drink that tea, he was shocked when I told him #Allowrie contained imported honey most likely from China “

We all deserve to know the country of origin of the honey we consume prior to purchase.

Only buy 100 percent Australian honey.

Support your local beekeeper

The next hearing is due on Friday 23 of November .

Thanks for the ongoing support.
