Rare manuka honey is produced nowhere else in the world than in New Zealand. Comvita is the world's largest producer of the highest quality UMF manuka honey and only produces honeys that are certified with the UMF trademark. UMF stands for 'unique manuka factor' and refers to the independently measured quality of honey produced by bees from the nectar of the manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium), which grows only in New Zealand. Only some manuka honeys carry the UMF trademark. Each batch of Comvita manuka honey is tested by independent laboratories for methylglyoxal, DHA and leptosperin, the substances that are so exceptional in manuka honey. All honeys have antibacterial activity due to their hydrogen peroxide content and UMF manuka honey also has non-peroxide antibacterial activity.
Bees collect nectar for manuka honey in groves of manuka bushes in New Zealand.
