Our Workforce

Our passionate beekeepers strive to maintain the health and wellbeing of our hives and the tiny, powerful workforce within that play a significant role in keeping our planet alive. This precious honey, nature’s purest essence is carefully collected ensuring ample is left on the hive to nourish and sustain the bees.

The Process

In one uncomplicated process honey is spun from the wax comb and decanted into drums in a certified extraction and packaging facility. From here honey may be blended or creamed according to customer needs. Every aspect of this process is critically managed to surpass all quality, hygiene and purity standards.

Packing

Highest quality honey is premium packed into our own 3Bee brand or white label packed to customer specifications. Every honey batch is independently tested for purity and authenticity, and in the case of Mānuka honey, the stringent requirements that must be met to label honey as Mānuka and assign its appropriate UMF factor or MG (Methylglyoxyl) rating. 

Integrity

3Bee prides itself on establishing respectful, trusting relationships with landowners, suppliers and customers. Our integrity and uncompromising resolve for customer satisfaction ensures that our customers become our friends.

Monofloral Manuka Honey

Mānuka Honey is made exclusively by bees foraging nectar and pollen from New Zealand’s indigenous Mānuka flower (Leptospermum scoparium). New Zealand Mānuka Honey is world-renowned for its healing properties and ranks as the most extensively researched therapeutic honey in the world.

MGO (methylglyoxyl) and UMF™ (Unique Mānuka Factor) are both trusted Mānuka Honey grading systems used to indicate the  potency of mānuka-derived antibacterial compounds. Both grading systems measure MGO content whilst UMF™ grading measures additional signature compounds: Leptosperin, DHA and HMF.

Though UMF™ and MGO grading systems measure the strength of Mānuka Honey differently, a direct correlation exists between MGO concentration and Mānuka Honey's unique antibacterial Non-Peroxide Activity (as measured within the UMF™ grading system). 

3Bee Premium Mānuka Honey is harvested, tested, certified and packed in New Zealand ensuring every jar is of the highest quality and authenticity.  3Bee offers Monofloral Mānuka Honey independently analysed and certified for quality, purity and authenticity by both of these respected honey grading systems. The rankings are clearly displayed on the front label of every jar.
