It all started in 1974 when Comvita founders Claude Stratford and Alan Bougen imagined people living healthy lives. Bees were their inspiration, and honey their medicine. Their vision was to connect people to nature and good health. Today Comvita continues that vision by researching and selecting sources of natural ingredients, carefully tending and harvesting them to preserve their purity.
Paengaroa in the Bay of Plenty in the North Island of New Zealand became home to Comvita, a place for people working with and learning from nature.
All Comvita® UMF® Manuka Honey is traceable to its source - from the hive to the shelf. They work closely with their bees and beekeepers to produce UMF® Manuka Honey of the highest quality. From New Zealand’s rugged central North Island volcanic plateau, to the bush clad hills of Northland, there are many factors that can affect the quality of Manuka Honey - it’s a natural product so the sun, wind and rain all play a part.
Sustainability for Comvita is vital and it’s reflected upon in the way they work: from the way they source their raw materials, all the way through to delivering end products to consumers around the world.
