Pitcairn honey is an excellent product and we have supported its export from Pitcairn through hosting events at the governor's residence and more recently promoting it at the UK booth at the Pacific Island Forum in the Cook Islands. In addition, the British Government provide the shipping service to and from the island which allows the export of the product and the satellite phone/internet link which enables producers to advertise and conduct business around the world.
