How Can Midlands Apiaries Ensure You Receive High-Quality Mānuka Honey

Firstly, Midlands Apiaries has a strong focus on sustainable beekeeping practices. We work closely with local beekeepers to ensure that bees are well-cared for and that they have access to diverse and healthy floral sources - namely, the Mānuka tree. Subsequently, happy and healthy bees will always produce a higher standard of Mānuka honey.

Midlands Apiaries also utilises state-of-the-art laboratory and packing facilities to ensure that our monofloral Mānuka honey is of the highest quality. For more information, please read our article - How ‘Traceability and Quality Control Ensures Premium Manuka Honey.

We use a combination of traditional and modern techniques to extract and process the honey, each method ensures that all Mānuka honey is minimally processed. This ensures that the beneficial compounds in the honey are preserved, resulting in a high-quality product that retains its unique properties and rich, natural taste.

In addition to sustainable beekeeping practices and advanced processing techniques, Midlands Apiaries also has strict quality control measures in place to ensure that all Mānuka honey meets the highest standards.

We conduct regular testing of our honey for purity, authenticity, and potency - we only package and distribute honey that meets our exceedingly strict criteria and the requirements of our customers.


How Can Midlands Apiaries Provide Ultra-High Concentrations Of Mānuka Honey?

We pride ourselves on having access to some of the most pristine Mānuka honey sources in New Zealand. The Mānuka plant only flowers for a short period each year (approximately six weeks), and the honey produced during this time is highly concentrated in unique bioactive compounds such as methylglyoxal (MGO).

Working closely with our beekeepers, we can identify the best Mānuka honey sources that can provide us with ultra-high concentrations of Mānuka honey - we subsequently harvest the resulting honey, which contains some of the highest MGO concentrations in the world.

Once the honey is harvested, our advanced working techniques will further concentrate the MGO and other unique bioactives in the Mānuka honey. This process involves removing excess moisture from the honey and carefully controlling the temperature to preserve the honey's coveted biochemical structure. The result is a high MGO or UMF™ Mānuka honey that is then jarred to seal in the purity until your customers open and enjoy!

It's important to note that not all Mānuka honey is created equal, and the concentration of MGO can vary widely between different suppliers. Midlands Apiaries maintains a consistent focus on sustainable beekeeping practices, advanced processing techniques, and strict quality control measures to ensure that our ultra-high concentrations of Mānuka honey truly are of the highest quality and provide the best taste, quality and potency to businesses and consumers.



What Grade of Mānuka Honey Is Considered To Be Ultra-High Concentration?

The Unique Mānuka Factor (UMF™) is used to measure the potency/shelf-life/authenticity/freshness of Mānuka honey. The UMF™ rating of Mānuka honey ranges from UMF™ 5+ to 32+, with higher numbers indicating higher concentrations of the bioactive ingredients.

An ultra-high concentration of Mānuka honey is typically considered to have a UMF™ 25+ certification or higher. However, it's important to note that not all Mānuka honey with a high UMF™ rating will necessarily be labelled as "ultra-high concentration," as this term is not regulated and may vary between brands.
