The world’s most researched honey.

Manuka Honey has many scientifically tested benefits for your health & wellbeing.


“Mānuka is a Māori word used in New Zealand English. It refers to New Zealand plants currently included in the species Leptospermum scoparium, and the raw Manuka Honey collected from bees which have visited such plants. .”

– Te Mara Reo

In 1981 Peter Molan MBE, a New Zealand biochemist who migrated from Wales in 1974, began researching the antiseptic properties of Manuka Honey. Specifically it’s high levels of non-peroxide antimicrobial activity. This research resulted in Peter creating an early grading system called the ‘Molan Gold Standard‘.

Ever since his early discoveries Manuka Honey has become the most researched Honey in the world. It’s unique and special health benefits have meant it is now used in homes through to hospitals all around the world for healing purposes.
