Midlands Apiaries Promise To Ensure Quality, Assurance and Protection

14 April 2023

Pure Mānuka honey continues to grow in popularity across the globe within several industries - whether it be food, natural health products or skincare. However, not all Mānuka honey is equal, and it's important to ensure that your business is only using premium wholesale Mānuka honey


Midlands Apiaries, one of the largest wholesale Mānuka honey suppliers in New Zealand, is committed to ensuring quality and protection when producing monofloral Mānuka honey. In this article, we will explore how Midlands Apiaries maintains our commitment to excellence and how we ensure that customers receive the highest quality Mānuka honey possible.



How Do Midlands Apiaries Ensure Quality?

Quality is at the heart of everything Midlands Apiaries does. We source our Mānuka honey from remote and pristine forests throughout the entirety of New Zealand, where the Mānuka tree is abundant. The honey is extracted using traditional and sustainable methods, ensuring the highest possible quality.


Midlands Apiaries is committed to ensuring that our monofloral Mānuka honey meets strict quality standards. We are a member of the UMF Honey Association, which sets the standard for Mānuka honey quality in New Zealand. The UMF rating system measures the unique Mānuka properties that make the honey so sought after, including the presence of methylglyoxal (MGO), which gives Mānuka honey our distinctive taste and health benefits.


Midlands Apiaries is also certified by AsureQuality, an independent certification agency that ensures the quality and safety of food products. This certification means that Midlands Apiaries' Mānuka honey meets strict quality standards and is free from contaminants.

How Do Midlands Apiaries Ensure Assurance

Midlands Apiaries is committed to providing assurance to our customers that they are receiving genuine and premium Mānuka honey. We have implemented several measures to ensure this, including traceability and testing.


Midlands Apiaries can trace our honey back to the hive it came from, thanks to our state-of-the-art honey tracking system.


Midlands Apiaries also tests the honey regularly to ensure that we meet the UMF and AsureQuality standards. Our in-house laboratory uses advanced equipment to test the honey for our monofloral Mānuka properties, including MGO, dihydroxyacetone (DHA), and leptosperin. These tests provide customers with the assurance that they are receiving pure Mānuka honey of the highest quality.


How Do Midlands Apiaries Ensure Protection

Midlands Apiaries is committed to protecting our customers, the environment and we also take steps to protect our customers from fraud.


Midlands Apiaries is a member of the Unique Mānuka Factor Honey Association (UMFHA), which was established to protect the integrity of Mānuka honey and ensure that customers receive genuine Mānuka honey products. The UMF™HA has a strict code of practice that all members must adhere to, which includes testing and labelling requirements.

In addition, Midlands Apiaries is committed to protecting our customers from counterfeit products. We use unique codes on our packaging that customers can use to verify the authenticity of the honey. The codes can be entered on UMF™’s website, and customers can see the UMF verification and get the assurance that the products from our retail brands are authentic.
