Connecting people to nature and good health. That’s how it all started in 1974. Today Comvita continues that vision by researching and selecting sources of natural ingredients, carefully tending and harvesting them to preserve their purity.
In 1974 Comvita founders Claude Stratford and Alan Bougen imagined people living healthy lives. Bees were their inspiration, and honey their medicine.
Drawn by The Hum
People were drawn to the same vision, hearing the stories of care for the community through good health. Paengaroa became home to Comvita, a place for people working with and learning from nature.
Hive to shelf
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.
Here at Comvita we are passionate about helping people be well and connect with goodness of nature. We offer the purest natural health products from source to shelf.
Natural and Sustainable
Sustainability for Comvita is incredibly important because it’s core to what we do, and it’s reflected upon in the way we work: from the way we source our raw materials, all the way through to delivering end products to consumers around the world. The image we have around the world is of a clean and green environment.
We are sourcing our products in this environment so obviously we care very, very much about ensuring that New Zealand maintains that clean and green image and, wherever possible, improves on it.
