Bee Maid Honey's Investment Supports Million Pound Annual Sales Increase

    WINNIPEG, Sept. 12 /CNW/ - An investment of over $500,000 in new
equipment will assist Bee Maid Honey Limited, North America's largest single
source honey marketer, in achieving its target of increasing sales of packed
honey by a million pounds per year. Bee Maid officials and government
dignitaries unveiled the new production line, consisting of a new liquid honey
filler, bottle orientator and labeler, during an open house today in Winnipeg.
    According to Chief Executive Officer, Guy Chartier, production efficiency
has already improved by 20% in the short time the new equipment has been in
operation. "Not only will our new processing line improve packing
efficiencies, it will allow Bee Maid to package honey in a wider variety of
containers," he explains. Chartier indicates Bee Maid's investment will
support the continued growth of Manitoba's $20 million dollar beekeeping
industry, while also providing more opportunities to increase the economic
return to beekeeper members across western Canada. Bee Maid sells honey across
the world to countries including China, Germany, Japan, Saudi Arabia and the
United States.
