Manuka Royale wanted to transform all of their energy into a healthy, life-improving product that would positively impact the planet, the local communities and customers. Manuka honey therefore was the ideal starting point. They sourced the highest grade UMF certified honey from small local farms in the wild pristine areas where the soil content produces exceptionally high levels of the beneficial nutrients in the honey such as methylglyoxal (MGO), dihydroxyacetone (DHA), leptosperin.
This was just the starting point. From this foundation Manuka Royale then looked at the whole supply chain for opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint on the environment. The production of manuka honey is generally a low-carbon non-polluting process, and living around the small bee-keeping communities helped to reduce this further. Manuka Royale is minimally processed to preserve the natural bioactive compounds and beneficial enzymes, which are depleted by heating.
