WHAT MAKES OUR HONEY UNIQUE?

We traverse remote New Zealand to bring you high quality
UMF Certified Mānuka honey from our nurtured Mānuka plantations
and hard working bees.

WE’RE 100% KIWI

Mānuka Hunters is one of the few Mānuka Honey brands that maintains total New Zealand ownership.

WE’RE SUSTAINABLE

Our love and respect for nature and the nectar it produces means we make decisions with sustainability in mind.

WE’RE EXPERTS

We know a thing or two about Mānuka Honey and the bees that produce it because we’re on the ground, every day.

OUR HONEY JOURNEY

Beehives beside a pond in a manuka plantation

STEP 1

In New Zealand, September marks spring and the time to build the bees’ health.
They tend to lose condition over the winter having been confined to their hives through the cooler months.
By November, our Mānuka Hunters have selected the most important members of our bee colonies – the queens.
High quality queens are the key to keeping healthy, well-performing bees.

STEP 2

Summer is bee season when the flowers are out and the honey is flowing. Our work doesn’t stop through these hot months as we continuously move and monitor hives on remote farms around Aotearoa New Zealand.

STEP 3

As summer comes to an end, we harvest the honey from our hives and bring the bees closer to home so we can nurse them through the colder months.

STEP 4

Extraction is the next step in our journey. Here we bring the harvested honey to our plant where it is extracted and processed to its highest quality.

STEP 5

The honey is then stored in drums while samples are independently tested for quality and the all-important UMF. These results tell us what rating the honey is and confirm its fitness for human consumption.

STEP 6

Once testing is complete,
we package and label our
products ready for you. By
this time it’s spring again and we’re back to Step 1, building the hives back up for the next bee season.
