UMF® Manuka Honey

New Zealand UMF® Manuka Honey is in high demand the world over for being a delicious and natural health food.

Advocates of UMF® Manuka Honey include:

World tennis number 1 Novak Djokovic,”The first thing I do out of bed is to drink a tall glass of room-temperature water. The second thing I do might really surprise you: I eat two spoonfuls of honey. Every day.”;

Supermodel turned philanthropist Petra Nemcova, “Manuka Honey from New Zealand! You can use it to clean your face since it nixes bacteria and plumps your skin too, almost like a natural collagen!”; and

Actress Scarlett Johansson, claims her remedy “really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards. It pulls out the impurities—and it’s a nice foundation, especially if you are going to a big event where you want a great glow.”

UMF® Manuka Honey is produced by honeybees gathering the nectar of native Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) an abundant flowering bush covered in white or pink flowers in spring and summer that grows wild in many areas of New Zealand.

For thousands of years honey has been known for its special properties and honey derived from the New Zealand Manuka tree is prized as one of these.

There are a number of different tests and trials being conducted, including newly emerging work on determining what the special nature of Manuka is, that will be available to consumers to verify the origin and provenance of  Manuka Honey.

The UMF® rating is a measure of the attributes and values that make up Manuka honey, and assures purity and quality.

UMF® is the registered trademark of the UMF® Honey Association and can be used only by licensed operators that meet published standards such as regular monitoring and auditing of the quality of their honey.
