A class action has been brought on behalf of U.S. honey suppliers against defendants including Groeb Farms, Inc., Horizon Partners, Ltd., and Honey Holdings 1, Ltd., alleging an illegal scheme executed by defendants that flooded the U.S. honey market with honey produced in China, while evading government-mandated duties in a way that may have caused serious economic harm to thousands of U.S. commercial honey suppliers.
This class action brought on behalf of U.S. honey suppliers follows multiple investigations by the United States Department of Commerce since 1994 which had led to previous suspension agreements with the Chinese government. Despite this governmental intervention, however, the lawsuit alleges that defendants have continued their illegal activities in ways that have continued to suppress domestic honey prices. This alleged illegal activity may have led to significant damages to commercial honey producers in the United States including declining sales, lost profits, loss of goodwill, and other economic damages.
If you are a commercial honey producer within the United States and believe you may have suffered economic damages as a result of the activities described above, you are urged to contact Audet and Partners, LLP at (800) 965-1461, or by submitting our confidential online inquiry form at http://www.honeysupplierlawsuit.com.
