Exotics in Norfolk

An English couple stand accused of selling Chinese and Argentinian honey as Norfolk Honey (Norfolk is a county in eastern England). Another beekeeper blew the whistle and pollen analysis plus their own “meticulous” and incriminating records don't bode well for their chances. They are accused of supplying 17.7 tons (about £70,000 of $30,000) of falsely labelled honey to small traders in Norfolk between 2001 and 2003.

William and Lynn Baker (who do have a few hives) have pleaded not guilty. The trial is expected to last four weeks.
