It appears the FDA have not renewed the Licence To Operate for Cem’s General Merchandising company (awaiting confirmation).
Without a trading permit it should now be illegal for Cem’s fraudulent ‘honey’ products to be sold to the nation’s supermarkets. (Probably, the existing stock in the shops will get run down.) Assuming that this justice takes place, it is a very good day for the Philippine people giving a chance for a genuine marketplace in honey.
It also gives an opportunity for better recognition of the reality of the pollination crisis in the country which is damaging agriculture and the environment, so that this issue can be properly tackled – leading to better crop yields and improved rural incomes.
