Honey Use Up in UK

Marmalade is Dropped for a Taste of Honey
Tim Hall, Telegraph (UK), 1/10/06

Sales of honey have soared in the past year while those of marmalade and jam continue to fall, according to new figures.

A generation ago honey came in just two varieties: clear and set. But shoppers are now able to choose from dozens of types, including Australian, South American, sunflower, eucalyptus and lavender.

Experts said yesterday that the new choice was largely responsible for persuading an extra 490,000 households to buy honey in the past year - an increase of 4.5 per cent. . .
