Provenance of Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is expensive, and here at Bees & Trees, we think it’s important that you know that you’re getting real New Zealand Manuka Honey. As we strive for complete transparency in an opaque industry, our glass jar is just the start. We provide our customers with complete information about our honey. We pack hive-to-jar, so each production batch can be tracked back to a specific area where the honey was harvested. We hired Oritain, specialists in food fraud protection, to certify the origin of each batch of honey we pack. By obtaining soil samples from our cropping areas, Oritain develops a chemical fingerprint which is matched to the honey samples we send them each season. The large packers who blend honey from across New Zealand can’t provide this assurance of origin.

We can assure you we know exactly where our honey comes from, and we have the data to prove it. Go to for a copy of our verification results. Buy with confidence at
