Manuka prices inflated

Manuka prices inflated

The National Beekeepers’ Association (NBA) wishes to correct misleading information, circulating in some media, that beekeepers are earning up to $400 a kg for bulk manuka honey.

NBA chief executive, Daniel Paul, says this is incorrect.

At best, beekeepers are earning up to $50 a kg for bulk manuka honey which is UMF 20+. And they’ll be earning less than that for other products.

“Retailers could be earning up to $400 a kg, but that’s certainly not what the beekeepers get,” Mr. Paul said.
