Melora Honey operate their factories from Opotiki and Whakatane and place their beehives in some of the most remote areas of New Zealand’s east coast.
Bee health is optimised through hives having their own identification tag which can be accessed electronically. Information is gathered daily, and databases updated to ensure an authentic product. Factories in Opotiki and Whakatane process the raw unpasteurized honey. It is only lightly filtered to ensure that all the goodness is retained.
Through Melora’s Ethical Honey Harvesting programme, the Manuka is ethically and sustainably sourced and harvested to create honey and skincare products rich with Manuka's health providing benefits. Melora’s Fair Share Programme ensures that a percentage of the income from their Manuka Honey and products benefits the Maori landowner partners.
Melora is a member and licensee of the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association. This guarantees that through independent testing and adhering to strict conditions, their Manuka Honey is genuine and of a high quality.
