Honey Fraud investigation status

No conclusions yet from the FDA investigation that has been underway since January !

The CEM company is still stacking up the nation’s supermarket shelves with fraudulent honey and cheating millions of innocent consumers.

Sadly, this scandal is also indirectly hurting millions of farmers who have declining fruit crops due to poor pollination, since people are being conned into thinking that the Philippines must have plenty of bees! There is a hope that if the scandal is exposed then more people will begin to realise that the country is suffering from a pollination crisis that has to be tackled to avoid increasing agricultural and environmental damage.

P.S. Sorry that there has been few posts on this web site recently, since I have been busily working in England. However, I try to keep up to date with the situation in the Philippines and will continue to work for this overwhelmingly decent country that deserves a better future. I just wish that more Filipinos would try harder to think about what is happening in their own country, and then help do something to improve the situation!

Julian.
