CEM ‘honey’ should now disappear from the supermarkets


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.

    Thanks for this useful information about Cem. I will not buy their caramel syrup anymore. Rustan,s and Shopwise should stop selling their products in their supermarkets.

    I hope this information will be confirmed soon. If it is, this remarkable result is to the credit of Julian’s tenacity. I am somehow ashamed that I lost faith in the possibility of changing this abusive situation. However, I shall resume supporting Julian’s endeavours by visiting the supermarkets of Bacolod city.
    Then I shall report here what I see on the shelves ….. I am not as optimistic about the immediat future … The “chance for a genuine marketplace” could be killed by CEM competitors who will probably take this opportunity to increase their stake on the fake honey marketplace.
    I shall report here a list of these swindler challengers.
    Then, what’s next ?? once this issue is solved out, are you OK to direct our efforts against the fake mineral water suppliers ?
