CEM criminal ‘honey’ in supermarkets

CEM has no Licence To Operate yet the supermarkets are still flooded with their fraudulent ‘honey’!

CEM flooding market

This is the SM store in Bacolod today, 1st March 2016 – after the CEM LTO ran out on 20th Jan 2016 !!

It is obvious that all this syrup is not made by Philippine bees – as indicated on the labels. The FDA know this – yet this crime is allowed to take place in the nation’s supermarkets. No response has been received from CEM or the FDA recently.

    Obviously their LTO has since been renewed and is valid until 2021:

    This is a very clear case to fraud and BFAD’s failure to act implies something is severly wrong with the regulation of the Philippine food industry. If the fact that some Philippine foods are total fakes becomes well-known in Philippine export markets, the damage can become extensive.

    Let’s hope Duterte can clean up this mess too.
