Objective Summary

The aim of this proposal is to establish a validated basis for identification, accreditation
and adoption for use of Australian honeys in their highest value roles.

Use of honeys in premium roles can be expected to deliver optimum prices to industry,
and, by diverting product from the commodity supply chain, to establish an increased
‘floor-price’ for those honeys remaining in that sector.
