UMF™5+: our certified UMF™ 5+ Manuka Honey is independently tested and verified by internationally accredited laboratories (containing at least 85mg/kg Methylglyoxal - MGO).
The UMF® grading system appraises natural markers found in Manuka honey and assures purity and quality.
Manuka honey starter: UMF™ levels naturally vary in Manuka honey, depending on Manuka varieties and environmental factors. Our UMF™ 5+ is a perfect entry option for those who love to try Manuka honey or are seeking a more nourishing alternative to ordinary table honey for everyday use.
Ethically sourced: economic returns from every jar of honey sold are directly and fairly shared with Manuka resource owners.
Natural & super tasty sweetener: our UMF™ 5+ makes an excellent natural sugar substitute for daily use. It is a perfect ingredient for honey glazed fish or chicken. Add it as a delicious dressing on homemade crêpes combined with fresh fruits. Or drizzle it on top of ice cream, breakfast porridge and yogurt as a less guilty ‘sugar craving’.
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 Honey is ethically and sustainably sourced. 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 high quality.
