UK Concerned About 'Unhygienic' Honey

Taxman's Crackdown on Funny Honey
Telegraph (UK), 1/1/2006

Britain's customs men and sniffer dogs have a new target. It isn't drugs. It isn't booze. Actually, it's honey. HM Revenue & Customs officials seized nearly 15 tonnes of honey last year - 10 times the weight of heroin they snatched.

A curious change in priorities, perhaps? "We're concerned that in many countries it is not being produced in a hygienic way," a spokesman explains earnestly. Importing honey from more than 100 places - including Egypt and the Virgin Islands - is a criminal offence that can land you a £500 fine. . .

Alemany Honeycomb filled with light honey - this is Spanish Honey UKat its most nutricious. Plus the floral taste from the rosemary and orange blossom nectar is irresistable in combination with the smooth honey and crunchy honeycomb.
