Capilano Honey, is majority-owned and controlled by Chinese companies and investors

1/ 5

Chinese owned Capilano Honey bribe Australian judges so they can sell their fake imported honey in Australia By Shane Dowling on May 23, 2020 • ( 19 Comments ) Capilano Honey, which is now majority-owned and controlled by Chinese companies and investors, is suing journalist Shane Dowling so they can continue to sell their fake honey in Australia. The hearing is scheduled to start Monday (25-5-20) and run for three days until Wednesday (27-5-20). The matter has been going since October 2016 and without a doubt, Chinese companies will see it as a test case to see if they can use Australian courts to give them the green light to continue their involvement in global food fraud and possibly other crimes. Most countries, including Australia, are involved in food fraud in one way or another, not just China. But China is the largest honey producer in the world and is also regarded as the global leader in selling fake honey and claims Capilano Honey has also been involved in honey fraud have been around for years. Capilano Honey’s case is scandalous and a blatant SLAPP lawsuit When Capilano and their then CEO Ben McKee first started suing me in October 2016, because I wrote about them suing beekeeper Simon Mulvany, they were listed on the Australian stock market with Channel 7 owner Kerry Stokes as their largest shareholder. The key point is that Channel Seven’s Today Tonight program broadcast unchallenged claims that in 2008 and 2011 that Capilano Honey was selling polluted and poisonous honey. (Click here to read more and watch the Channel 7 stories) Seven’s Today Tonight were referred to by the NSW Supreme Court and Court of Appeal when they lifted the dodgy suppression orders against me in 2018 and Capilano have never denied the allegations nor did they ever sue Seven for defamation. In September 2018 Australian media which included the SMH, ABC, News Corp, SBS and many others all published stories alleging Capilano Honey were selling fake honey via their Allowrie branded honey after horticulturalist Robert Costa had the honey tested in Germany. Capilano honey said the type of testing used, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), was not accurate but the ABC reported on the 3rd of September 2018 that a few months earlier: “Leaked emails from the local peak industry group, the Australian Bee Industry Council (AHBIC), of which Capilano is a financial member and has board representation, show it wrote to the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources in July (2018) requesting it review the way it tests honey, ditching the old C4 test and moving to NMR.” (Click here to read more) Capilano’s CEO Ben McKee did another backflip a few days later and on the 5th of September 2018 was telling the media that Capilano honey “now wants to fund a lab to carry out the tests in Australia” using NMR testing. (Click here to read more) A few months later in January 2019 Capilano Honey announced it would stop selling Allowrie honey. With all the bad press obviously no one was buying it and Coles had already stopped selling imported honey in July 2018. If Capilano Honey, the company is now known as Hive and Wellness Australia, really believed that the testing that Robert Costa had done was wrong why didn’t they sue him and all the media for defamation and/or injurious falsehood? Why didn’t they sue Seven? That’s a question Ben McKee will need to answer in the witness stand under oath next week. I won’t say too much more about the case as I don’t want to pre-warn them. But why are they suing the likes of myself, and previously Simon Mulvany, but refusing to sue large media companies or wealthy farmers like Robert Costa? Judges for sale I’m now in Queensland and so is Capilano Honey and Ben McKee so the matter should have been transferred to the Supreme Court of Queensland, but the greedy corrupt NSW judges have so far refused to do so. I recorded the dodgy Justice John Sackar acting as Capilano Honey’s counsel in February refusing to transfer the matter. (Click here to read more or listen to the recording) Justice John Sackar wouldn’t give reasons and didn’t publish a judgement which is about as corrupt as it gets.
