In February 2019, we went to the North Island of New Zealand and visited 5 apiaries. We contracted with Mana Kai and are going to sell our own “Awanui” brand with Kobe Apiary in the Japanese market.
The Manuka tree grows only in New Zealand. It is highly bactericidal and is especially good for the respiratory and digestive systems. The higher the percentage of nectar from the manuka flower (means less nectar from other flowers), the more effective it is and the higher the price.
For this reason, the honey is harvested by helicopter to remote, roadless mountains.
And the first shipment has just arrived!
