Here's Why Every Drop Of Our UMF™ Manuka Honey Is Superior
Here at Comvita, we go to great lengths to ensure every single drop of our UMF™ Manuka honey is bursting with the unique properties of its source. We’ve been working with Manuka and bees since 1974, so we know a thing or two about how special the Manuka flower is.
In the most remote, untouched regions of New Zealand, where native Manuka grows in abundance, the purest UMF™ honey is produced. That's why we locate our bee hives in such extraordinary places. From the rugged central North Island volcanic plateau, to the bush clad hills of Northland, our hives are spread across six different geographical regions – some are only accessible by helicopter. This means that regardless of seasonal conditions, we have a secure source of the highest quality Manuka in the country.
Through our horticultural program, we’ve also identified high-producing Manuka cultivars. We’re implementing planting programmes to make sure we always have large, pure stands of this premium Manuka variety for our bees to forage on.
We’re absolutely passionate about always bringing you the best honey we possibly can. That’s backed up by the fact that our most precious honeys are awarded the highest UMF™ ratings, certified independently by the independent UMF™ Honey Association.
