Our Quality Standards

A dedicated team of Australian and international scientists and researchers have carried out detailed independent studies on Australian Manuka honey over many decades.

Modern science has enabled greater knowledge and understanding of the antibacterial activities and healing properties of Manuka honey. The progression of scientific and clinical research has been highly beneficial, as users of Manuka honey now have better insight and greater confidence in the strength and potency of Manuka honey products.

We believe in using only reliable, reproducible methods to directly indicate the quality of manuka honey, to inform consumers about the quality of the honey they are buying.
