Creating your Brand to meet your Business and Market Needs

Whether you call it private label, white label, packed honey, own brand or OEM, we are an experienced honey packer and leading supplier of retail ready packed honey. We offer a full service from product development, to label design, to export requirements. Our flexible and customised approach means we adapt to suit your business and market needs. With a wide range of premium honey our dedicated teams are ready to help you with all aspects of your brand, to ensure your product meets the highest possible standards.

Craftsmen of Honey

Our master creamers are craftsmen of honey, creating honey creamer that fosters an excellent product with superior taste, texture, viscosity and crystal size. Every batch is crafted to meet our incredibly high-quality standards that are then independently verified by accredited New Zealand laboratories.

Manuka Honey Origin

In late spring to early summer, the Mānuka tree is covered in masses of flowers. The bee visits this flower to collect the pollen and begins the production of the iconic honey. Once the pollen and nectar are collected, worker bees fly back to the hive, depositing their gatherings into honeycombs. Lastly, our specialised field trucks can relocate hives and transport them back to our honey extraction facility for rigorous harvesting and testing.

Our dedicated team will help develop your private label brand and ensure it meets the highest quality standards. We offer you a customised total honey solution for your brand.
