NZ HONEY CO
New Zealand Honey Co Ltd is New Zealand’s largest, single producer of specialty honeys. It was formed in
2007 from a desire to give people the opportunity to experience and taste, the goodness of our unique New Zealand Honey. The key stakeholders are themselves beekeepers who have been producing honey for over 50 years and packing specialty honeys for over 25 years.
Our unique brand position is based upon the scientifically proven and documented, health benefits specific to our honeys. We are passionate about our products and have direct involvement from the hive to the shelf, to ensure we can preserve the nutritional qualities and flavour of the raw honey that we harvest.
Quality, purity and sustainability are at the core of the company’s ethos. New Zealand Honey Co honey is gathered and packed without the addition of any additives. We manage all the stages of harvesting and processing honey, and can trace each batch that we pack all the way back to the hives. We test our honeys to ensure that the purity can be guaranteed.
We maintain our hives without antibiotics. Our workers (the bees) pollinate the flowers of fruit, plants
and pasture crops, creating seed banks. Without this process the reproduction of our pasture and unique flora and fauna could never occur.
We work closely with New Zealand Universities and Research Institutions to understand the unique health properties of each of our honeys. Two of our honeys; Beech Forest Honeydew and Thyme, have some of the highest antioxidant and pre-biotic ratings of any honey tested worldwide.
We want our customers to be able to experience genuine health benefits from eating our honey with all the flavour and goodness that is present straight from the hive.
