Why Mānuka Honey Is So Expensive | So Expensive

Mānuka honey known for being is earthier, richer, and more viscous than many other honeys. It comes from the nectar of the flower of Leptospermum scoparium — also known as Manuka, which is only native to New Zealand. Mānuka, in fact, is a Maori word.

“The plant itself is very rare. It’s difficult to harvest because the flower is only open for 12 days, and sometimes we have to use helicopters to collect this honey.” John Rawcliffe from the Mānuka Factor Honey Association told Business Insider.

Although mānuka bushes can also be found in Australia, New Zealand accounts for almost all the world’s production, with exports worth 300 million NZ dollars ($204m) and expected to rise to 1.2 billion NZ ($800m) by 2028. 

Watch the video to find out what’s so special about it and why it costs so much.

Why Pedigree Dogs Are So Expensive | So Expensive

The price of pedigree dogs is at an all-time high, and demand too. 2017 saw a 7% rise in the number of registered puppies in the UK.
We visited Crufts, one of the world’s largest dog shows, to find out why people spend so much on pedigree dogs.

A Tibetan Mastiff sold to a businessman for $1.9m in 2014, yet years later the breed was being abandoned en masse.  So why does this happen? We speak to the RSPCA to find out more about irresponsible breeding leading to an increase in price.
