Where Our Manuka Honey Story Begins

The PURITI Philosophy

Our Heritage

PURITI was founded in 2018 as part of Midlands Apiaries Limited. Midlands Apiaries has honey production history dating back almost 100 years.

PURITI is 100% locally owned and dedicated to producing premium, non-GMO, Glyphosate residue-free, single-origin Manuka honey from our state-of-the-art production and packaging facilities. PURITI is proud to be a 100% New Zealand-made brand with passionate Kiwis at the helm.

Harvested and produced in the greenest New Zealand environments, we provide the world with luxurious Manuka honey. Our quality and certification standards are a promise to our customers that we only deliver the best.

Manuka Production

Certifications

We have stringent food hygiene standards and practices, and we employ a range of advanced technologies and quality controls to ensure only the highest-quality products are produced.

All of our Manuka Honey is independently tested and certified.

Certified by the New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) #MAL01/01

PURITI passes all legal requirements of the Manuka Honey Science definition as set by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI).

For monofloral Manuka honey to be certified, it must meet five specific attributes. If the sample fails to meet all five, the honey will be deemed as multifloral. At PURITI, all our Manuka honey is completely monofloral, ensuring maximum potency.

PURITI is also proud to be Risk Management Programme (RMP) certified with MPI and, as such, is recognised as a food production facility by the New Zealand government.

To ensure we deliver a consistent quality of products to our customers, we maintain effective communication with MPI. PURITI understands the importance of our customers and prioritises liaising with MPI to meet and exceed requirements.

We are also one of just a few New Zealand honey producers to be SQF certified. SQF is an internationally recognised benchmark food quality standard and prerequisite requirement to supply most global food retailers.

UMF™® Honey Association Licensee #2888

The unique UMF™® trademark is a Quality Mark certification that is internationally recognised and furthers the purity of PURITI. After rigorous independent testing and auditing conducted by accredited laboratories, this certification ensures that you’re buying the highest quality of New Zealand Manuka honey.

The UMF™ grade is primarily based on the concentration of the antibacterial methylglyoxal (MGO). In addition, the chemical leptosperin, which is linked to anti-inflammatory properties, is another key determinant of the UMF™ grade. Unlike other Manuka honey, the UMF™ certification tests key DNA markers from the honey to determine the single-origin source as well as potency.

To achieve this golden standard, the Manuka Honey is tested for three signature compounds unique to this rare honey. The honey must be monofloral, sourced and packaged in New Zealand to ensure authenticity.

PURITI is also certified as New Zealand Made (License No. 100582), 100% Traceable, 100% Sustainable, Vegetarian, Halal, Kosher and Non-GMO.
