Natural as standard
The Mānuka honey tree (Leptospermum scoparium) grows uncultivated throughout, Aotearoa, New Zealand. This gives beekeepers the opportunity to place their hives in some of the remotest regions of the country.
Untouched by human interference and mostly free from pesticides and other harmful products. We are lucky to have this pristine land at our expense and to ensure you only get the best from our land we test our honey for pesticides such as glyphosate and foreign matter.
We encourage beekeepers to use biodegradable products whilst maintaining a healthy hive and bee population.
Don't be greedy
The nectar that bees bring back to the hives contains sugars and protein pollen and is essential for the survival of the bee colony.
A healthy hive will produce a lot of honey and being too greedy as a beekeeper does not benefit your little workers at all. To minimise the need to provide additional 'feed' to the bees we encourage beekeepers not to take all honey out of the hives and feed wastage back to the bees. We ask our selected beekeepers to avoid adding refined sugars.
Zealandia Honey® is able to tests and identify adulteration in honey through a simple laboratory test that we perform on all our products prior to export.
