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 MĀNUKA 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.
