I'm still collecting and storing propolis in the freezer. I'm hoping that one day the price will come right to make it viable for selling again.
Can anyone tell me the value of pure propolis currently in NZ? Also, does anyone know if Arataki is still buying?
I may have to start up my own processing plant.

Arataki is not buying.
I would be happy to sell my propolis for less than the cost of imported product but the big corporations seem hellbent on only using imports and then packaging it to make it look like it came from New Zealand.

As ever.... I guess it’s the cost of processing it here that kills the profitability.
Now if the slaves were happy to work for two dollar a day.... things mght be different.
Bit like why most North American bee operations are staffed by Mexicans....
