Imported Honey Fighting Fund

Imported honey continues to be a priority issue for beekeeping industry in Australia.

The current threats to the Australian beekeeping industry mean that it has never been more important to protect and promote our industry to ensure our long-term viability.

Monitoring imported honey products and gathering authenticity data will strengthen AHBIC’s ability to lobby on behalf of industry to increase testing of imported honey and improve current testing protocols.

AHBIC is asking for your donation into the imported honey fighting fund, enabling us to establish the imported honey testing program.  The program will confidentially gather baseline authenticity data from imported honey on retail shelves building a database of deidentified data to present to government to help strengthen our voice.

Without the support of industry, AHBIC does not have the funds to facilitate this campaign at the level that is needed.  AHBIC will be treating the investigation with integrity and anonymity and will not be naming and shaming adulterated samples as this impacts all honey sales.

By supporting the Fighting Fund AHBIC will be able to randomly test off-the-shelf imported honey for its integrity. The results will be used to build a solid, data driven de-identified platform to advocate on behalf of industry to government for policy reform.

Your contribution can be recognised on our website or you can choose to remain anonymous.
