Manuka Lab is part of the New Zealand Manuka Group. Our partnership with our beekeepers are an essential part of everything we do here at New Zealand Mānuka Group. The bees in their care pollinate our Mānuka trees, helping them to reproduce their beautiful flowers each year. While the Honey they produce back in their hives is nature’s liquid gold which we extract for its incredible Mānuka content and qualities. Our Ethical Honey Harvesting programme sets out clear quality policies and procedures for all harvest and apiary operators working with NZMG. The aim of this programme is to protect the bees and hives from risk of contamination, to protect the environment during harvest and to keep our people safe throughout the process. Tending over 12,000 strategically placed, fully traceable hives, our beekeepers ensure the health and well-being of the bees in their care. These passionate and dedicated people are now passing their knowledge and skills on to their children and grandchildren, providing a solid, secure future for their family, their community and us.


New Zealand Mānuka Honey is a renowned ingredient for its unique properties and is the gold standard in honeys. Found along the remote, arid coastlines of New Zealand, the Mānuka tree is home to a delicate little white flower. Thanks to the European honeybee, the Mānuka pollen is collected during the short 2-6-week flowering period, and from these flowers, Mānuka Honey is born. Because of the Mānuka flowers, the honey has a distinct flavour, that is instantly recognisable compared to other types of honeys. But most importantly, the honey retains the incredible genetic properties of the Mānuka tree, which contains powerful antimicrobial properties. Mānuka Honey’s natural soothing properties are considered almost four times stronger than regular honey, making it an incredible ingredient for topical skincare and personal care. Combined with the natural antimicrobial properties of methylglyoxal, Mānuka Honey has become a staple for promoting general well-being.
