Nelson Honey & Marketing today
Our products fall in 3 distinct categories of Nutrition, Health and Skincare – easily distinguished on the website by the distinct colours used for each category – and are available from over 500 retail outlets around New Zealand (natural health food shops, pharmacies and gift shops), through our online shop. In addition, many of our products are now exported globally to markets including China, Hong Kong, Singapore, United States, UK, Thailand, Cambodia, India and the Middle East.
We maintain a strict policy around distributor enquiries. If you are interested in stocking our products, rather than phoning us, please visit our resellers page and complete to contact form.
We produce natural products with as little ‘nasty’s’ as possible, passing on all the natural goodness to you. This means we don’t ‘cook’ our Manuka Honey to artificially create high MG (Methylglyoxal) levels, and we add minimal preservatives to our skincare range Royal Nectar. Fabulous bee products from the pristine wilderness of New Zealand’s South Island …from A to Bee to You!
We test all our Manuka Honeys for Methylglyoxal levels, C4 carbon sugars, Hydroxymethylfurfural and pollen count. Click here to find out more about these tests and what the results mean for you.
We implement strict quality controls across all our products, giving you peace of mind you’re using a quality product. Because we work with natural products there are variations from time to time in colour and consistency. This is nothing to worry about as it doesn’t affect the quality or effectiveness of the product. If you’d like to find out more about our Quality Control processes, or have concerns or questions about one of our products please click here.
Regardless of the tremendous growth we’ve gone through over the past few years, we remain passionate about our roots. Nelson Honey is a family-owned business with three generations of beekeeping and honey production experience to offer you the best New Zealand bee products. We support the communities that have helped us grow, like Motupiko, Tapawera, St Arnaud and the wider Nelson area. Our staff are part of the Nelson Honey family and we value our open work environment where we work together as a team and continue to make amazing bee products for you!
Beekeeping and honey production
We look after the land and support maintaining a pristine environment for our bees to feed and prosper in. Placed in the pristine bush and forests of this beautiful part of New Zealand, our hives produce a variety of natural honeys and bee products free from insecticide or other agricultural sprays. We pride ourselves on our beekeeping and honey production practices.
Research indicates that honey produced in such clean, green environments increases the therapeutic benefits of the bee products (Postmes & Van den Bogaard, 1993) and we pride ourselves on our range of natural products that are all designed to help you feel and look great thanks to the magnificent Honeybee.
