The Mānuka tree is native to New Zealand. Areas abundant with native Mānuka blossoms are often located in remote parts of New Zealand. Our beekeepers place the beehives in these locations, sometimes reaching them by helicopter.
Mānuka flowers bloom for just two to six weeks per year. In this very short season bees gather the nectar to make this prized honey, highly valued throughout the world for its rare and complex properties and its special, earthy flavour.
Mānuka honey with the UMF™ quality mark ensures the purity and quality of authentic Mānuka honey from New Zealand. Every batch of UMF™ honey is independently tested to measure the Unique Mānuka Factor (UMF™). This registered quality mark is the official stamp on Mānuka honey that has been scientifically tested and graded appropriately.
The honey companies that use this grading system are official licensees of the UMF™ Honey Association, which has very strict criteria. www.umf.org.nz
