SUSTAINABILITY


We are Committed to Sustainability

Working alongside bees and beekeepers for over thirty years has given us a unique understanding of how important it is to reduce waste, and our impact on the environment.

Bee Populations are in Decline


The good news is that a lot of this decline is remediable.


It is very important to us to ensure that our beekeepers consider the welfare of their bee colonies, which is why we are very selective with our suppliers.


Our local beekeepers are involved in cultivating new Mānuka plantations in areas with land and soil degradation. This ensures we do our part in replenishing soils and positively contributing to the biodiversity of our precious country.


It is a critical part of our selection process that all our honey is sourced from areas in New Zealand which are clean, flower and Mānuka-rich, diverse landscapes.


An estimated 1/3 of human food is dependent on pollination from insects like bees, and bees are responsible for pollinating 70 different crop types.

However you look at it, bees play a vital role in the biodiversity of our planet.

The good news is, we can make a difference

OUR BEEKEEPERS 

ARE CULTIVATING NEW MANUKA TREES.

It is an essential part of the Manuka South philosophy to look after our earth for generations to come. 


We work with beekeepers who use sustainable farming practices to cultivate their honey.

Ensuring that our beekeepers consider the welfare of their bee colonies is important to us, which is why we are very selective with our suppliers.

We use sustainable materials

All our boxing is printed using PEFC Certified resources. The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) is an international programme promoting sustainable forest management.

We are currently in the process of transitioning our UMF 5+ through UMF 20+ to 100% recycled PET plastic jars. PET is one of the most environmentally friendly food packaging products and can be recycled after use. All our glass honey jars use recycled glass. 

Our Limited Reserve range consists of 100% FSC Certified wood. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international organization that promotes responsible management of the world's forests.
