Genuine Manuka Honey

The New Zealand Government recently developed a new standard for Manuka Honey to ensure that consumers receive the genuine article. All Pure Gold Manuka Honey products are independently tested in New Zealand to ensure that each jar contains genuine Manuka Honey. Every jar of Pure Gold honey can be traced back to the individual hive to guarantee its origin. In addition, each jar bears reference to MGO, the marker that defines the strength of real Manuka Honey, the higher the number the greater the strength.

New Zealand Manuka Honey

Manuka honey is indigenous to New Zealand, a country renowned
for its unique landscape which has widely been untouched by
pollution. The indigenous Maori population recognises the unique
activity of Manuka Honey and has used it for centuries.

Pure Gold Manuka Honey

Pure Gold Manuka Honey is harvested in the Wairarapa region of
New Zealand's North Island. Known as the 'Glistening Waters' the
Manuka bush grows abundantly and the honey which is produced from
our 3000 hives is guaranteed to be a monoforal source of Manuka pollen.

Hive Management

All our hives are managed individually by a team of bee keepers to
ensure the wellbeing of each colony of bees. In addition, each hive has
a GPS locator to ensure full traceability from hive to jar. Manuka honey
is harvested during December and January when the Manuka flower is in bloom.

The Honey Bee

As you would expect the honey bee is an integral part of the honey production process.
Bees survive as a colony with a single queen which lays eggs from which all other
bees are produced. Bees have two distinct roles; worker and drone. that of the worker bee
which is responsible for cleaning the hive and feeding the larvae (nurse bees). As worker
bees develop they become foragers who leave the hive to find nectar. Meanwhile, drone
bee's only purpose is to mate with the queen bee.

White Hive

The Honey

The honey bees gather nectar from the Manuka flower and take it to their
hive in a second stomach where they add a enzyme called Glucose oxidise
to breakdown sugar. Once back in the hive the bee regurgitates the nectar
into a cell commonly known as the honeycomb. Here, excess water
evaporates to prevent fermentation. The honey is then sealed with wax
and is ready for consumption.
