    It's seems fine - watch out for brands like Allowrie and other brands that use imported honey - but the healthiest honey is raw and unprocessed
    I'm a subscriber to that Facebook page.

    I think Capilano owns Allowrie actually, and I will not buy any Capilano-associated brands as such.

    I will always try to buy organic, whether it will be from a small organic food store or from a market stall straight from the farm.

    For me now it's not just about the Aussie brand thing but also about sustainability and not using neonicitoids (however you spell it) as it just kills too many bees as well as other insects.

    Ps writing this on the fly so I probably haven't write any of this correctly

    We buy local honey by the pail at the local grocery store (not supermarket). It's about $12 p/k and bloody delicious.

    I buy from a friend but she has told me if I ever need to buy from a supermarket then Capilano (but none of their others brands) and Beechworth are good. I'm not sure how I feel about supporting a company that has other dodgy brands they make money from though.

    We buy from local markets where possible. DH's boss just gave him some from his dad's bees so looking forward to cracking that one open. The best honey I've ever tasted is from Denmark down south WA - they are in such a pristine area the honey is amazing, we always stock up when we're down that way.
    Very skeptical of Capilano now after reading, I'd like to know what the labelling laws are because it always says "Australian honey", but these reports are saying it may contain imported honey.
    I bought the Aldi one last month & it said 100% Australian honey?

    We have a local honey man here, he charges $10/kg for raw, unprocessed honey. It's the best!

    They seem really mean as well.

    The guy who runs the Facebook page to stop them from importing dodgy honey, Capilano bought his domain name and his actual name. So if u Google the guy (forgot his name), it directs u to a page saying how good their honey is.

    Something to that effect (still at work and writing on the sly lol)

    For mine this is more than just about the honey, this becomes welfare of the bees / impacts on pollination and hence our food supply.

    I'm lucky enough to have a supply of raw honey straight from the hive as my dad keeps bees.
