The price of quality South African honey has increased and consumers can know that retail honey prices below R50 per kg (August 2007) are possibly either imported or blended with imported honey. Even well known retailers with honey branded in their name are also known to receive imported honey although they deny this. Their suppliers are contractually bound to supply honey at a certain price and with producer prices rising they have n choice but to blend cheat poor quality imported honey with South African honey. (the honey regulations stipulate that if a jar of honey contains 50% South African honey, it can be labeled as South African honey) Most labels now carry the countries of origin but be assured that although it mentions many countries, the contents probably comes only from China.
