Is China “Honey Laundering” To Circumvent US Tariffs?

Tsunami of Indian (Chinese) Honey

The United States reportedly imported over 60 million tons of honey in just the first half of last year (2011).

During the period of March 1-June 5, 2011 62.7 million pounds of honey were shipped from India to the United States . The previous highest average 3-month quantity from China was 19 million pounds. Such an unimpeded colossal flow of honey from India portends catastrophic consequences to American beekeepers and in the final analysis to American Agriculture, which depends for one-third of its food supply on pollination by the bees.
