Manuka Health About Us

About Manuka Health

Manuka Health was the first company in the world to certify Manuka Honey according to methylglyoxal content. Our precise and reliable MGO™ measuring system leads the way in providing customers with a reliable certification you can trust. 

MGO™ Manuka Honey is sustainably sourced from our beehives in remote, pristine regions of New Zealand. Every batch is fully traceable from beehive to shelf, and carefully tested and certified for absolute quality assurance. 

Manuka Health pioneered the MGO™ Manuka Honey Quality System, which since 2008 has become the most widely recognised and accepted indicator of genuine New Zealand Manuka Honey. 

Founded in 2006, Manuka Health now has the largest customised honey facility in New Zealand. With internationally accredited laboratories, honey-drum storage, blending, packing and distribution under one roof, supported by an extensive investment in hives, hive health and research and development, Manuka Health is a leader in the innovative, natural health space. 

As one of the largest global New Zealand healthcare companies, Manuka Health has products available in over 45 countries worldwide.
