Honey Fraud obscenity continues

The Philippine supermarkets are still cheating their customers

For many years the nations supermarkets have been stocking vast quantities of fake honey despite clear evidence of the fraud they are perpetrating. The following pictures are from the SM supermarkets (pictures below are from Iligan City, Oct 31st 2015.) It’s the same story with all the nations major supermarkets!

At any one time, there  is more ‘Philippine honey’ on the shelves from CEM than is produced by the country in the whole of the year! Essentially, it’s all the same factory produced syrup mixed with dubious imported product, packaged up fraudulently as quality Philippine genuine honey. The CEM company care nothing for the truth and continue to defraud millions of innocent customers. In a country as civilised as the Philippines this activity is an obscenity.

Notice that the genuine SueBee honey is about THREE times the price! It doesn’t take a genius to appreciate that CEM and the supermarkets are prepared to continue the fraudulent honey business for as long as the FDA let them get away with it.

  1. for many years cheating customers. It’s a scandal and pull down Filipine beekeeping. Cems should be invited in court. I hope that will be soon.
