Genuine Manuka honey is a product of the wonderful resourceful bee. Beekeeping is a highly specialised skill. To make this honey, the bees collect nectar from the Manuka Bush. The word Manuka is from the Maori language. It is the Maori name given to this indigenous native bush of New Zealand, otherwise known as Leptospermum scoparium.
Manuka has a long and strong association with indigenous Maori traditional natural medicine. The Manuka leaves, bark, oil and ash have all been used for various ailments. It is little wonder that the initial growth and demand for Manuka honey originated in Asian countries where alternative, traditional and natural remedies are held in such high esteem.
New Zealand is one of the cleanest natural environments in the world and most Manuka trees grow in remote areas and genuine wilderness. New Zealand has some of the most spectacular and diverse landscapes on the planet.
Agricultural products and natural products from New Zealand are highly regarded and sought-after, plus accepted for their renowned quality and purity.
Genuine Manuka honey is exceptionally rare and unique to New Zealand. To ensure the purest product, it must be harvested, extracted, tested, certified and packed in New Zealand.
