When it comes to producing and sourcing manuka honeys of the highest quality, Happy Valley can boast more than three decades experience. Based north of Auckland, Happy Valley is the work of two families who source their honeys from all over the country.

The UMF label, or Unique Manuka Factor, is an internationally recognized trademark, which has developed out of the academic research into identifying the unique chemical markers of manuka honey.
The use of the label means the honey has been independently tested to establish the honey contains the chemical markers and compounds that make it special. Testing is important as these markers can vary from batch to batch.
Many fans of manuka honey swear by its ability to help fight against some common ailments such as the common cold, but others also report improvements to their digestion as well as overall wellbeing.
