ASEAN NOW - Australian Honey Products
I’m Lindsay Bourke and I’m a beekeeper. I’ve been beekeeping since I was 23
years old and I’m the chairman of our industry, which is Australian Honey
Products, here in Tasmania.
We export beautiful honey. In fact, it was voted two years ago as the
world’s best honey. Leatherwood honey from the Tarkine Rainforest in
Tasmania, and we export that all over the world.
The ASEAN market is very important for us. We’re very active in Malaysian
markets, Singapore markets; it’s very important for us to enable more
sales. The ASEAN market is really growing now and we’re going to put even
more time into it because we can see possibilities with it. They are
gateways to larger markets for us.
We have worked with Austrade many times. It’s very helpful for us and it’s
really increased our business. We’ve put on more people now because of the
business growth, so Austrade has been very helpful for our business, I can
recommend it to anybody.
