Capilano Honey has in effect admitted by their labelling that their standard Capilano branded honey is contaminated with pesticides. This comes on top of Capilano last year withdrawing their Allowrie brand honey after Coles stopped selling it in July 2018 and then Capilano’s Allowrie Honey being exposed in the media in September 2018 as being fake Chinese imported honey after testing.
This has come to my attention at the same time I have filed an application to have Capilano’s frivolous and vexatious SLAPP lawsuit against me, which has gone nowhere for over 2 1/2 years, removed to the High Court of Australia. The evidence is below, and it will be utilized in court which will hopefully be the High Court of Australia.
What underlines this battle are the global issues of multi-billion-dollar food fraud and the poisoning of food by pesticides. One of the most popular pesticides is Roundup and its owner Monsanto has been on the receiving end of court judgments where it has been ordered to pay multi-million-dollar pay-outs to people who are dying of cancer. In one of the latest judgments against Monsanto it has been ordered to pay $US2 billion ($2.8b) to a couple who caught cancer from Roundup. That’s not a typing mistake, it’s $US2 billion which is $2.8 billion Australian. (Click here to read more) There are reports there are currently “more than 13,000 pending lawsuits nationwide by users of Roundup”. (Click here to read more)
So, the question is what does that mean for companies like Capilano Honey who are selling honey that they know has been poisoned with Roundup? This is another asbestos and/or tobacco scandal starting to erupt and Capilano and its shareholders have a lot of questions to answer and they are running SLAPP lawsuits (Strategic lawsuit against public participation) so they can avoid answering those questions.
I first wrote about Capilano Honey suing Simon Mulvany in September 2016 with an article titled “Australia’s Capilano Honey admit selling toxic and poisonous honey to consumers” which quickly went viral here and overseas and it wasn’t long before Capilano Honey started suing me as well.

High Court of Australia proceedings and NSW Supreme Court Case
I won’t say much about the court case at this point as I only filed my application in the High Court of Australia on Friday (31/5/19) to have the matter removed from the NSW Supreme Court to the High Court. I will write more about it in the next few weeks but one of the main reasons as to why it should be removed to the High Court is that the matter has been in the NSW Supreme Court for over 2 1/2 years and gone nowhere and that is not accidental. It is a standard SLAPP lawsuit designed to conceal from the public the truth about what Capilano Honey is really selling to consumers and it is deliberate and happens with the help of corrupt judges.

Evidence of pesticides in Capilano Honey
The above and below photographs of Capilano’s Organic Honeycomb Raw Honey were taken on Monday the 27th of May 2019 at Woolworths. How long Capilano has been selling that particular type of Honey I’m not sure but I only took notice of it on Monday. When I read the label on the top of the bottle I couldn’t believe it because of the admission by Capilano that honey being contaminated with pesticides is a major issue for Capilano which they have been denying in court, although only through their lawyers.
Just for the record, the “ACO Certified Organic” label comes from the company Australian Certified Organic which is a dodgy company that sells the Certified Organic label to any company that pays them. ACO doesn’t have a clue if the honey is organic or not and they were caught out when I wrote to them in 2017 and asked them questions which they refused to answer. (Click here to read more)
The above picture is the top of the bottle which says, “To be certified as organic we guarantee our honey is sourced from hives with a 5km pesticide exclusion radius.” Based on that Capilano is saying that they sell that particular honey at a premium price because it is “sourced from hives with a 5km pesticide exclusion radius” which means Capilano must sell their normal honey cheaper because they believe it is not as good.
Woolworths sell the normal Capilano Honey at $1.47 / 100G to $1.68 / 100G depending on the quantity and sell Capilano’s Organic Honeycomb Raw Honey at the premium price of $2.58 / 100G or $2.35 / 100G for the Organic Raw Honey with no Honeycomb.
So why wouldn’t Capilano’s normal honey be as good if it is sourced from hives within the 5km pesticide radius? The only inference that I can draw is because Capilano is in effect admitting their normal honey, that is sourced from hives within the 5km pesticide radius, has pesticide in it and that is why they sell it at a discount to the implied “higher quality” Organic Honeycomb Raw Honey.
If Capilano is going to say that their normal honey doesn’t have pesticides in it then they need to explain why the so-called organic honey is better and sold at a higher price? Capilano also needs to explain why they have written that the higher priced Organic honey “is sourced from hives with a 5km pesticide exclusion radius” if it makes no difference? Capilano has boxed themselves in and there is no out.
I’ll be publishing another article on Capilano Honey and the High Court of Australia application in the next week or so.
