UK customs seizes nine tons of honey

The Times reports from Hansard (the UK Parliamentary record) that:
Last year, customs officers at UK ports and airports seized products of animal origin weighing 175,435kg (170 tons) — including 9,262kg of honey — and more than 25,000kg of fruit, vegetable and plant products.
UK citizens wanting to know where they can legitimately import honey from, can look here. I've yet to hear a really sound reason for such restrictions.
