Honey on 4

BBC Radio 4's Food Programme this week focused on honey -- and honey laundering. And it's definitely worth a listen. If you call up this site this week, you'll be able to listen to it. You'll need Real Player, but you can get find out how to get a free download of the software here.

The programme focuses upon honey laundering -- the Chinese honey ban and honey misrepresentation. Interviewees include a pollen analysis specialist, The Honey Association, a UK beefarmer (Chain Bridge Honey Farm), one of Britain's biggest honey packers (Rowse) and the Bees Abroad charity about its work in the Himalayas.

If you do listen, you'll realise how good BBC Radio 4 can be. It's speech radio (not talk radio!) at its best and the Food Programme is a great example of its output.
