Kaimai Gold is proud to produce a range of UMF certified Manuka Honey.
Our Manuka Honey is predominately sourced from the East Cape of New Zealand. The East Cape is an extremely isolated and immensely beautiful part of New Zealand, it is home to thousands of hectares of untouched native forest which stretch as far as the eye can see. The East Cape of New Zealand has a unique variety of Manuka Tea Tree that is known for producing some of the highest quality Manuka Honey in New Zealand.
Each batch of honey is tested by UMF certified laboratories to ensure its purity and quality as well as the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) rating.
Our range is not limited to Manuka Honey, please contact us for further product information and wholesale / export pricing.
100% New Zealand Pure, natural, and totally unique, every jar of Kaimai Gold UMF honey comes direct from the native forests of New Zealand.
PROVEN POTENT We test each batch in a UMF certified lab to make sure it’s pure, potent, and perfect.
NEW ZEALAND NATIVE
Pollen from native manuka tree makes Kaimai Gold a uniquely New Zealand creation.
HIVE TO TABLE Our honey is whipped and packed straight from the hive.
Naturally Sourced We’re serious about where our honey comes from. With a network of trusted beekeepers around the country, we’re able to fill our jars with the best quality manuka honey every time. We know every keeper, every hive, almost every Manuka tree. It’s about trusting our sources, so you can trust our product.
Naturally Potent Our bees make honey from pollen collected from the tiny white flowers of the native Manuka tree. That unique pollen is what gives our honey its powerful health benefits and intense flavour. We test every batch in a certified UMF lab, so you know it’s perfectly pure.
Naturally Delicious Kaimai Gold honey goes straight from the hive to the jar, with just a little creaming in between. It’s as natural as it gets. Our delicate creaming process makes Kaimai Gold smooth, luscious, and delicious, while keeping its rich flavor and natural potency. Try it on toast, in a hot drink, or eat it straight off the spoon.
Manuka honey and the UMF scale – why more is better
The UMF grading system appraises natural markers found in Manuka honey, and assures purity & quality. This is compliant with the recent interim labelling guidelines published by the Ministry for Primary Industries. The UMF grading system has two components which are expressed on any UMF licenced honey product:
The label claim that it is Manuka
The number – this represents three chemical markers that indicate the content of this honey to ensure purity and quality. This includes the key chemical markers DHA and MGO.
To receive a UMF® grading, a honey must have the presence of DHA (dihydroxyacetone), Methylglyoxal, and Leptosperin. The UMF® rating is a measure of the attributes and values that make up Manuka honey, and assures purity & quality.
The most beautiful honey, from the most beautiful country in the world: the Kaimai Gold story is a love letter to New Zealand.
The manuka flower is unique to our country, and the honey produced from the nectar isn’t just intensely flavoured: it can also come with some startling health benefits. We wanted people all over the world experience the highest quality manuka honey for themselves.
But like many natural products, it’s difficult to tell the difference between exceptional manuka honey and its less-potent pretenders.
Kaimai Gold is set to change all that. We’ve scoured the country to find the most potent manuka honey, produced in our most pristine environments. Because we know every hive that produces every batch and use independent UMF labs to certify our honey, we can stand by every jar. It takes longer, of course. But it’s worth it: we think that this beautiful, natural product deserves nothing less.
