During the last 10 years, overseas demand for New Zealand Manuka honey has driven a 19% p.a. increase in annual honey exports to more than $350 million.
The health and healing properties of this natural wonder have given rise to a worldwide proliferation of applications – from food and beverage to cosmetics, nutraceuticals and medical dressings.
