The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) understands that the honey industry may use a variety of different techniques when taking a sample of their product to be tested by a laboratory. Different sampling techniques may be used at different points in the honey supply chain and these could affect whether the test results are representative of the product at that point in time.
MPI requires a research provider to design and carry out a study to determine the influence of sampling and processing techniques on obtaining representative test results for markers in the MPI mānuka honey definition.
