History of New Zealand Manuka Honey

November 17, 2020

New Zealand Manuka honey comes from the pure and unpolluted virgin forests of New Zealand. Studies have found that New Zealand Manuka honey contains antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.

Its leaves and bark are natural herbs used by the Maori people of New Zealand for hundreds of years. In early summer, its white flowers cover the entire hillside like snow attracting swarms of bees to collect nectar.

Manuka is one of the rarest honeys in the world, 1 hectare of Manuka produces approximately 35 kg of New Zealand Manuka honey per year. It is almost impossible for other countries to surpass New Zealand’s annual production of thousands of tons of Manuka honey. New Zealand Manuka honey contains the Unique Manuka Factor, which makes it a leader in the international market.
