UMF® MANUKA HONEY

Manuka Honey is produced by bees from the nectar of the delicate white and pink flowers of the Manuka tree. The Manuka tree grows wild in remote, hilly regions of New Zealand.

What does UMF® stand for?

Honey has been used for centuries by many cultures for its antibacterial and healing properties. More recently it has been discovered that Manuka honey has other unique and special antibacterial properties - these have been called the "Unique Manuka Factor" or UMF®. The strength of UMF® honey is rated to reflect the different level of these properties which vary from Manuka to Manuka in different areas and seasons.

UMFHA has registered UMF® as a trademark and strictly controls its use to ensure the activity of Manuka Honey is not misrepresented. The UMF® trademark was registered to help consumers ensure that the Manuka Honeys they are buying do in fact have the special antibacterial properties and that those properties are at the level shown on the label. Consumers generally choose UMF® Manuka Honey for its unique flavour and for its health maintaining effects.

To use the UMF® trademark, the manufacturer or owner of the brand must hold a current UMF® license with

In addition an audit is made of each licensees label claims (ie that UMF® 15 is UMF15) by way of an annual check of process and product test records and random in market product testing.

The UMF®grading system appraises markers found in manuka honey, and assures product purity and quality.
