Where is Manuka Honey from?

Manuka Honey Made in New Zealand

You’ve already heard of the wonderful benefits that pure Manuka honey can provide and now you’re looking for the best quality product. Well, we’re here to help you understand the process.

New Zealand is known as the world’s top producer for raw Manuka honey, filled with vitamins and minerals and many beneficial ingredients.
New Zealand Manuka honey is graded by the UMF standard (Unique Manuka Factor). On the bottle of the raw honey jar it may say UMF 5 or UMF 20 and the greater the UMF number the more potent the honey is with its helpful properties.

If your skin cream comes from New Zealand Manuka honey then it should bring with it the high standards created in that country.

How is Manuka Honey Manufactured in New Zealand?

First, bees take the nectar from the Manuka Bush, mixing it with their own enzymes to produce thick, rich Manuka honey high in beneficial properties.

When the honeycombs are ready, they’re moved to a processing facility. Top manufacturers such as Bees and Trees have extremely high standards and use the lightest processing possible with the purpose to harness the most pure, raw form of Manuka honey. 

Removing the honey from the comb involves three basic steps: piercing the wax seals covering the honeycomb, spinning it at a high speed to remove the honey from the honeycomb cells, and lastly, filtering the wax from the honey. 

Manufacturers also closely monitor the temperature and other factors in clean, modern facilities to produce this top-grade honey. Thus, it is successfully extracted and placed in jars so it retains its moisture and is ready for the world.
