Manuka Honey

From the hive to the shelf, trust Comvita UMF Manuka Honey

Ingredients background

In the beehive there is a special magic where an intricate network can teach us about living with nature.  The video "A day with Jono" follows one of our amazing beekeepers from dawn to dusk allowing us to see into the world of a beekeeper.

Manuka honey is one of nature's special gifts. Sourced from some of New Zealand’s most pure and remote locations it is renowned for its unique flavour; Manuka Honey is recognised worldwide for its unique properties not found in ordinary honey.

The Maori have used the Manuka plant for centuries, using its wood to craft tools, canoes and furniture, and its leaves to create medicinal oils and teas that treat wounds and reduce fever. It is the Maoris we have to thank for discovering the delicious honey derived from the Manuka plant, which they used to sweeten their drinks and dishes for generations.

In early summer the bees forage in the delicate Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) flowers which only flowers 2-6 weeks a year. It’s a busy start to the honey season. 

All Comvita UMF® Manuka Honey is traceable to its source - from the hive to the shelf. We work closely with our bees and beekeepers to produce UMF® Manuka Honey of the highest quality. From New Zealand’s rugged central North Island volcanic plateau, to the bush clad hills of Northland, there are many factors that can affect the quality of Manuka honey - it’s a natural product so the sun, wind and rain all play a part.
 
Our beekeepers are the experts in the honey crop, the Comvita quality system and understand that only the best honey will make the Comvita Honey quality grade. No other company knows Manuka honey like  Comvita.
