In the last few years, global food supply distribution chains and systems have begun to interest me considerably. Often the implementation of these systems has far-reaching, not-necessarily-obvious economic consequences and side effects.
I also have a passing interest in bees and apiary. Linked is an excellent article about a 'lucrative contraband' smuggling scheme involving honey. You don't often stop to consider the source of it, but honeybees are a critical linchpin for our food production environment. Crops would be devastated without their pollination work.
Bottom line on this article: be wary of cheap imported Chinese honey.
Commercial honeybee colonies continue to die off (aka that time the Cheerios Honeynut bee told me to buzz off).
