The ABC reports that the ACCC found honey testing methods not reliable enough to prove adulteration.
Fortunately, no Western Australian sourced “pure honey” samples tested positive. Still, Western Australian processor Capilano found their Allowrie brand at the center of the controversy. Allowrie products are often blended with imported honey.
However, there has been some good news. The ACCC’s investigation found Capilano took steps to provide assurance about imported honey quality. It didn’t find evidence that Capilano’s Allowrie honey is adulterated with sugar syrup.
