Mānuka honey wholesalers are only based in New Zealand, which has specific laws regarding compliance. With any other Mānuka honey that comes from a different country, you can’t be certain that the product is genuine. New Zealand maintains a premium position in overseas markets that allows for the security and certainty of the presence of pure Mānuka honey in the world.

As a national product of New Zealand, the government also takes a very strict stance on what is legally deemed to be monofloral Mānuka honey. According to the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI), there are five defining attributes that must be met to be considered pure Mānuka honey. A failure to meet just one of these criteria will stop the honey from receiving a monofloral certification.
