New Zealand Honey – unique and powerful
New Zealand has a lush green environment with large open spaces and a rich diversity of native flora and vegetation. This makes it the perfect foraging environment for bees that make some of the best honey in the world. Honey from New Zealand is unique due to the fact that a lot of our flora and fauna is native. Many of our unique flowering trees, such as the Manuka Tree, result in a honey with an unusual composition that is significantly high in antibacterial and anti-inflammatory health benefits.
NZ honey products are sought after worldwide. As we are becoming increasingly concerned about the source and purity of the food we consume New Zealand honey holds special attraction. For example, the routine use of antibiotics to control disease in bee populations is illegal in NZ but a widespread practice in other countries. Disease is controlled by strict border controls, facilitated by the remote nature of the country.
With almost half a million hives in NZ it is a well-regulated, researched and supported industry. We admire the direct involvement of New Zealand Honey producers and because the industry is so well managed all New Zealand honey products can be tracked from hive to shelf. This pride and expertise ensures additive free, traceability and purity for Manuka Honey, Royal Jelly, Propolis and Bee Venom from our beautiful country.
