Aldi confirms its Mixed Blossom honey is mostly Chinese

Monday, May 1, 2017 3:02:46 PM Australia/Melbourne


It doesn’t say so on the label, but Aldi’s Mixed Blossom honey is mostly Chinese.

That’s what customer service told me today when I rang to enquire.

“Its 60% Chinese and 40% Australian” she said.

I rang customer service to ask about it because the labels don’t say where the honey comes from.

 But I was also confused about the difference between Aldi’s 375gms squeeze pack and its 1 kg tubs. The label on the 1 kg tubs says it has at least 30% Australian ingredients, but its 40% on the smaller 375gms squeeze pack.

“Is it different honey” I asked?

She said the information was the same for both – 60% Chinese and 40% Australian.

Manuka – the biography of an extraordinary honey

By Cliff van Eaton

manuka honey

When Aaron Phipps appeared on the BBC televisions Healthcheck programme back in late 2000, his amazing story was a milestone in the world’s awakening to the extraordinary healing power of Manuka honey.

The Southampton teenager had contracted meningitis, and then meningococcal septicaemia. Skin grafts failed to take, wounds refused to heal and at one point he was in such pain that doctors put him an induced coma for two weeks.

Finally, after both his legs and the tips of all his fingers had been amputated, and after nine months of torment, his wounds were treated with Manuka honey.  They healed in 3 weeks.

Phipps has gone on to become a champion disabled rugby player, representing the UK at the 2012 Olympics and in 2016, set more incredible firsts by crawling and climbing his way to the top of Mount Kilamanjaro in Africa.

But, as Cliff van Eaton recounts in his excellent book, it was his BBC interview that prompted the first really significant spike in demand for Manuka honey in the UK.
