Naki Honey is a New Zealand family business based in New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand. Their honey is named after the famous dormant volcano Mt Taranaki on the west coast of the North Island.
The purity of their honey is guaranteed and traceable to the very site it came from. The whole process from the land to every single bottle is controlled and monitored.
Surrounded entirely by wild Manuka bush the Naki hives are so remote they can only be accessed by helicopter. With no road access, no cultivated crops and no man-made influences, the bees fly up to 5km from their hives to feast EXCLUSIVELY on pure Manuka nectar.
The remoteness and geography of the land protects it from contamination not just by alien species but by large groups of humans and all that they bring with them. The fact that two thirds of Taranaki is hilly prevents the sprawl of heavy industry and the spread of agricultural chemicals that affect the balance of the ecosystem.
The uniqueness of this world-within-a-world means Naki honey comfortably exceed the 70% Manuka pollen content required to be labelled New Zealand Manuka Honey.
