Manuka Health was founded in 2006, since then they have focused on unlocking the rare and unique natural properties of Mono Floral New Zealand bee products and sharing them with consumers around the world.
Manuka honey comes from the Manuka plant (Leptospermum Scoparium), a species native to New Zealand. It was used as a traditional ‘medicinal’ plant by the Maori people.
While Manuka honey has been produced commercially since the 1830s, it’s only in the last 30 years that the medicinal uses of the honey have been explored with modern scientific methods.
- Methylglyoxal (MGO) is the ingredient that makes Manuka Honey so unique. The MGO rating system tests and certifies every jar for MGO potency, purity, and quality.
- Clearly indicated on pack and simple to understand; MGO 100+ means there is a minimum of 100mg of MGO per 1kg of honey. (Manuka Health is also a member of the UMF association).
- Manuka Health honey undergoes rigorous testing that demonstrates authenticity and strength. Each batch is independently verified by New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) as being of genuine NZ origin.
- Manuka Health honey is raw, unpasteurised and is not heat treated. It is gently warmed to filter, cream and bottle the honey. This protective process ensures you are getting a superior tasting honey with all the wonderful natural properties.
- Manuka Health is committed to operating as sustainably as possible and never compromising on the health of the bees. This means Manuka Health honey is here to stay and to be enjoyed for generations to come.
- Our wide range of honey ensure something for every household. Multi floral (MGO 30+) provides a delicious everyday honey staple while the Mono Floral ( MGO 100+ and above) is made from pure manuka nectar providing you a pure unadulterated manuka honey.
