You’ll Need a Lot More Money to Buy That Jar of Honey

Wall Street Journal / May 22, 2019

“Americans consumed 596 million pounds of honey in 2017, or an average of nearly two pounds per person—up 65% since 2009 —according to a report from the University of California’s Agricultural Issues Center. About a quarter of the honey sold or used in the U.S. is produced domestically; the rest is imported.”
