Export Honey Brands

Midlands Apiaries is an independent, 100% New Zealand owned total honey solution, proud to bring the taste of New Zealand Honey to the world.

As New Zealand’s premiere honey producer and packer our experienced beekeepers strategically place hives in the most pristine lands and forests of clean, green New Zealand, in a sustainable environment, that allows our bees to live up to their reputation as nature’s hardest workers.

We produce and pack Manuka, Clover, Honeydew and Multi-flora honeys as well as a range of native honeys like Rata and Kamahi. Our state-of-the-art production and packaging facilities are conveniently located in the agricultural heart of New Zealand providing all the services required to blend, package and distribute high quality products and exceptional brands, including PURITI and Mount Somers.

We believe that NZ Manuka honey must be the very best in every aspect and the same quality should be available to all consumers, no matter where they are in the world.

We want to eliminate confusion surrounding Manuka honey grading systems and standards. Not only should the consumer know what the different grades mean and represent but they should also understand the legal standards, what they are and where they are applicable.

It is clear that many consumers are unaware that the MPI Manuka Honey Science Definition (legal testing standard) only applies to exported jars, and is not a requirement for the New Zealand domestic market.

Most international consumers are also unaware that bulk barrels of Manuka Honey can be exported and packed overseas without any mandatory or legal requirement to meet the MPI Science Definition. Theoretically, this allows bulk honey to be packed offshore outside of New Zealand where quality regulation, standards and labeling rules may vary dramatically, therefore, resulting in a lower quality product.

The consumer must be given the full picture, the whole truth and all the information required to make an informed choice. We need to be comfortable whether you choose PURITI or not, your choice has been an informed one.

A lesser product does not mean a bad product, it just isn’t at PURITI Manuka quality. But if you do choose PURITI, you are getting Manuka honey that meets that PURITI Honey testing Standards.  All our Manuka honey is 10-100% higher than MPI's export standards and you can be assured that PURITI Manuka honey contains no Glyphosate residue.
