Local honey suppliers
New Zealand has a world reputation for producing excellent honey. And right here on our door step, the Canterbury Plains, the best Clover Honey is produced. We source our beautiful honeys from all over New Zealand's pristine and unpolluted lands, forests and mountains.
To the west, we are bounded by the spectacular grandeur of the world famous Southern Alps and to the east by the Pacific Ocean. Snowfed rivers, which form the northern and southern boundaries, ensure an abundance of water, to support floral growth. Although based in the Canterbury Plains, we source New Zealand's finest honeys honey from all over country. Our knowledge and experience with quality control, traceability systems, and export requirements guarantee that we operate at the highest standard achievable.
Transport and Logistics
Midlands Contracting (our sister company) operates its own fleet of trucks to manage the loading and transporting of export containers to and from port, and cartage of our own products from Cape Reinga to Bluff. We travel all around New Zealand to pick up honey. We cart bee products eligible for export with Official Assurances under Midlands Apiaries’ Risk Management Program from as far as Kaitaia in the North to Invercargill in the South. Our modern fleet of trucks and professional drivers ensure the integrity and safety of all the products we transport are maintained. Our drivers can then access both rail and road and airfreight with a choice of two deep water ports with containers facilities located at Lyttelton – 100km to the north and Timaru – 77km to the south and Christchurch International Airport 80km to the north.
