Midlands Apiaries is a Honeydew honey supplier capable of supplying anything your business or brand needs!

Unlike our other honeys, Honeydew (also known as Beech Honey or Forest Dew Honey) is collected from Black Beech trees, located in the Alpine forest of the South Island of New Zealand. This honey is uniquely made, firstly small insects deep within the beech forest produce sticky liquid collected on Black Beech trees.  Honeybees then search these remote forests for the New Zealand native tree and collect its nectar.

Our Honeydew Honey can be customised for your business into different jar sizes, jar types and serving options, as well as being able to add different flavour or formulations (ie vitamins or minerals) to suit your customer or market needs.  Whether your business needs your own Private Label Brands, you want to distributor one of our market established Retail Ready Brands, PURITI, Primal By Nature or Mount Somers, or are looking for Bulk Honeydew as a food, cosmetic or pharmaceutical ingredient, we have a wide ranges of solutions to fit your individual business needs.
