What to Look for When Buying Manuka Honey

On the label

100% New Zealand Origin - Watch out for trusted New Zealand Manuka honey exported in retail packs from New Zealand (‘Product of New Zealand’ labelling). 

Certified Methylglyoxal (MGO) content - This is the vital ingredient. Not all Manuka honey contains the same amount of this valuable compound. When you are shopping make sure to look out for certified MGO content on the label. If you see this label you can rest assured that you are getting the right grade of authentic Manuka honey for your needs.

From the Manufacturer

A trusted New Zealand brand - This is the sign you need to look out for if you want to be able to trust your honey manufacturer. Check for brands that have their own beekeepers and collect and manufacture their own honey. This is the way to verify that a level of quality, authenticity and safety through careful and close protection has been met. 

Trusted source - You should be able to follow the trail all the way back to the hive. To ensure the product is reliable and excellent, manufacturers should be able to trace and guarantee their supply from beekeeper to jar and have supporting quality assurance programmes throughout the process. 

Specialised processing facilities – It isn’t easy to make or store Manuka honey. You need precision and expertise to capture, optimise and protect the honey’s natural properties. This ensures that at the end of the process there is a Manuka honey that retains both it’s amazing natural qualities and rich, intricate flavour.
