Processed, packed and labelled in New Zealand
Our RawManuka Honey UMF™ 5+ is produced by bees collecting nectar from the native Manuka plant, a scrubby tree that is abundant across New Zealand and is well known for its unique properties. These properties have led RawManuka Honey to be one of the most researched honeys in the world. The small white flowers of the Manuka tree bloom during spring and summer in New Zealand and this is the time of year when the bees collect the nectar and produce the honey.
New Zealand Honey Co. RawManuka Honey UMF 5+ is a complex honey with a herbaceous flavour that has undertones of caramel, with a clean fresh finish and a slightly bitter taste. This honey has a smooth, pleasant texture; very thick, chewy and almost fudge-like consistency. The honey can range from being a dark cream in colour to a dark brown, and anything in between.
Our Raw Manuka Honey UMF™ 5+ is great as a spread on nutty bread and adds a rich complexity to savoury sauces and marinades. RawManuka Honey can also be eaten straight off the spoon or added to drinks. Add this honey to a smoothie for a natural sweetener, or drizzle over your yoghurt and muesli.

ABOUT UMF™ & MGO
What is UMF™?
UMF™ (Unique Manuka Factor) is a highly-respected grading system that guarantees you genuine, unadulterated, natural Manuka Honey. All our Manuka Honey is tested by an independent third party and, at a minimum, meet the standards set by the UMF Association and the New Zealand Government.
Understanding UMF™ vs MGO vs K-Factor:
UMF™ is the highest testing standard for any honey worldwide. UMF™ testing measures these key elements - Leptosperin, DHA, HMFand Methylglyoxal (MGO) which all mark a high-quality Manuka Honey.
MGO measures Methylglyoxal (MG) but notLeptosperin which classifies genuine Manuka honey.
K-Factor focuses on the pollen count of the honey and does not measure the Methylglyoxal (MGO) of the Manuka honey.
New Zealand Honey Co. is a member of the UMF™ Association and all our honey is tested and measured to the UMF grading standard.
