In the heartland of New Zealand, we operate a total Mānuka honey solution system that provides several monofloral Mānuka honey businesses with their necessary supply of Aotearoa’s most sought-after honey.
You may be a new growing business that requires more education on Mānuka honey, or you could be an established brand seeking a more reliable and high-quality Mānuka honey supplier. Either way, this article will give the perfect view into why Midlands Apiaries can be your one-stop supplier for the honey that has gained worldwide popularity.
As an industry leader, Midlands apiaries prides itself on consistently producing and supplying the country’s most pure, untouched, raw monofloral Mānuka honey. Midlands Apiaries consist of workers that are experts in their specific field.
Our master creamers are craftsmen of honey. Over many years they have refined their skills to produce the smoothest honey you have ever tasted - while retaining that unique purity, ensuring the honey remains as untouched as possible.

More than just words, we have rigorous systems in place to ensure that we live up to an exceedingly high standard. With key testing conducted at every production stage before finally going through a metal detector, we can ensure 100% pure New Zealand Mānuka honey year-round.
Although our in-house laboratory has pre-determined tests to conduct, we can introduce more specific tests if you require them. We ensure that every business we partner with can have a customised process for ensuring their raw Mānuka honey is up to the highest standards.
Midlands Apiaries requires all of our honey to go through vigilant compliance and certification systems. Possible only through our in-house laboratory, we undertake regular testing to maintain our reputation as one of New Zealand’s best wholesale Mānuka honey suppliers.
We hold product certifications for the following:
Halal, Kosher, Non-GMO, Glyphosate residue-free and New Zealand Made (Fernmark).
We also hold quality certifications for the following:
SQF Level 3 Certified - comprehensive food safety and quality management system.
HACCP - used to identify and manage significant food safety hazards.
RMP Registered - a risk management programme for outlining food safety protocols.
Midlands Apiaries has a 100% commitment to food safety. It is of the utmost importance for our business partners and the customer that we provide clear lines of traceability for all our products. At any given time, we are aware of the origin of all of our batches and can ensure that effective QC measures are taken throughout the entire process.
Our traceability processes ensure the authenticity of our raw materials so you can be assured the final product is genuine and to the highest possible standard. Our knowledge and experience, paired with quality control and traceability systems, guarantee a top-level quality product that you can be proud of when selling to your customers.

As mentioned above, Midlands Apiaries offers a total honey solution for your Mānuka honey brand. Far more than providing you with genuine monofloral Mānuka honey, our operation also includes a state-of-the-art packing facility, an experienced marketing team (with knowledge of the retail Mānuka honey market), and a team of exporting professionals who are aware of domestic and international export requirements.
Our highly-specialised packing facility has several jar shapes and sizes that may fit your specifications. However, in the event you require a more bespoke design, our incredible team will be able to work with you to find a unique design that fits your brand (minimum order required).
