What is your company background, and how did you start the business?
We at Wilderness Valley are a family-owned and operated boutique honey company. We produce quality UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) Manuka Honey from our remote hill country station. Our farm is located on the Central North Island of Aotearoa, New Zealand. Our sustainable business practices encompass all accepts of the trade, from beekeeping and extraction to bottling our branded jars of golden liquid.
What is the current product range and variants, and how do these products stand out in the market?
Our UMF™ 15+ Manuka Honey is strong honey with a wonderful thick creamy texture. It has a savoury flavour with an underlying sweetness offset by a spectacular soothing quality. A teaspoon a day or when you have a sore throat. As a family, we also use it on our burns.
Our UMF™ 10+ has a sturdy flavour with herbaceous undertones followed by a sweet yet light caramel finish. This Manuka Honey is brilliant for everyday use. We use it as the perfect addition to a lemon & ginger drink.
Our UMF™ 8+ is a sweet, delightfully creamy honey. This would be great added to your morning smoothie or to add to your baking, e.g. making muesli or banana bread.
Our point of difference is that we get our honey from our land as well as process it all ourselves, this means that we know exactly where the honey comes from, and consumers really respond to this.
Has there been any recent company news?
