NOTE: We need a substantial supply of comb honey in plastic boxes and section comb honey. This item is usually in short supply and thus bidding doesn’t make sense. We will accept cut comb in plastic boxes and wooded and round section comb containers. Quality standards for all comb honey are: clean cappings and all cells capped. Cut comb in plastic boxes must be well drained with little or no liquid honey. We will pay $4.00 per unit for cut comb in plastic boxes or section comb honey which weighs at least 14 ounces. We will pay $3.25 for comb honey in round containers that meet quality standards. Honey from all suppliers must be 2007 crop, Iowa honey with 18.5% or less moisture content and excellent overall quality. All of the containers need to be at a uniform fill line and free from foam. The IHPA booth manager has the right to refuse any containers not meeting this standard. Winning bids will be based on price, quality and ability to provide required quantity of product for the entire fair. All winning bids will remain in effect for the duration of the Iowa State Fair. Bids must be received by June 30, 2007.
Please sign the bid sheet and provide address and phone numbers. Suppliers of State Fair Honey will use their own business label on products supplied for State Fair Sales. Labels must be attractive with preprinted working, which includes name and address of the supplier and net weight of item supplied. Include one sample of your label with the bid sheet.
NOTE: Arrangements need to be made to pick up any used product between 9 p.m. & 10 p.m. Sunday, August 19 or 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday, August 20, 2007.
