Ethical Harvesting

Our Ethical Honey Harvesting Programme is the base protocol to achieve Mānuka Originz™ quality assurance certification. The aim of this programme is to protect the bees and hives from risk of contamination, to protect the environment during harvesting and to keep our people safe throughout the process.

The traceability and recording systems we have in place allow us to monitor, measure and manage all aspects of our harvesting activities to ensure the highest quality standards are met, first and foremost being the impact on our environment – land, trees and bees.

All New Zealand Mānuka Beekeepers are contractually obligated to operate within the requirements of our Ethical Honey Harvesting Programme.
