With your help over Thanksgiving and Black Friday,
More than 80 schools
with an education curriculum on the importance of pollinators and the materials to build a pollinator habitat within each of these schools.
Learn more about the partnership
Everyone’s life depends on pollinators,
so let’s play our role in protecting them.
What are pollinators?
85% of all flowering plants on the earth need help from pollinators to reproduce. Pollinators are fundamental to any ecosystem and require urgent care to survive.
Pollinators are the bees, butterflies, birds and other animals that help agriculture produce an estimated third of all the food we eat. They are critical to the health of our planet.
Pollinators are in dire trouble, largely due to loss of habitat. The result is an unstable global food supply, unhealthy ecosystems and a dramatic loss of biodiversity.
Manukora’s commitment to
our precious pollinators
Our method of producing the highest quality Manuka honey has always meant protecting the health of our nearest and dearest pollinator and their habitats.
How we do it
We work with our landowner partners to ensure zero sprays are used anywhere near our remote Mānuka forests.
For peace of mind, we test every batch of honey for glyphosate. These results are available through our QR trace technology.
We adhere to The Art of Ethical Beekeeping. A standard developed with our partners promoting bee health and responsible environmental practices.
The Art of Ethical Beekeeping
A traditional way of beekeeping that prioritizes the health of the bees, and often means taking things slowly.
We leave enough honey on the hives to get the bees through winter, and our colonies are not shifted (max allowed is 50 miles/year).
We have a maximum of one bee colony per hectare to ensure no overstocking. Our honey is carefully harvested to allow for 'raw' processing and is free from pesticides, GMOs and antibiotics.
