BENEFITS AND USES
Manuka honey comes from the nectar of the flower of the Manuka bush (leptospermum scoparium) which is indigenous to New Zealand. It is this special nectar and the bee that give Manuka honey its unique properties. Manuka honey is highly sought after for the following reasons – the Manuka flower only produces nectar for 3-4 weeks a year, Manuka honey includes signature compounds not available in other types of honey, and because the unique properties of Manuka honey are well understood by consumers around the world.

Unlike Manuka honey from other regions which can have a strong flavour and bitter aftertaste, Manuka honey from the East Cape region of New Zealand is highly regarded for its delicious mild flavour.
