Export Honey

Mt Lyford Honey Ltd is a trusted honey exporter with our honey going all over New Zealand and around the world for over 26 years. The Honey Hunter allows us to produce pure New Zealand raw honey and our honey retains the unique mountain flavour specific to our beautiful location.

We have full certification and authority to export with the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industry. All our honey is tested and certified at a government-registered laboratory. We ask for the following tests for all our Manuka Honey:

Ministry for Primary Industries 5-Attribute Test or 3-in-One Test to determine whether the honey is Monofloral Manuka or Multifloral Manuka and to determine the MGO and DHA levels in the honey.

C4 Sugar Test to prove our honey is not contaminated with artificial sugar (many beekeepers feed refined sugar to their bees – we prefer our bees forage naturally).

Moisture Test to determine the level of moisture in the honey is 20% or less, otherwise the honey will ferment and no longer be suitable for use.

Bulk honey is usually exported in drums weighing around 300kg each. The buyer packs and labels the honey in the country of destination. Packaged honey is where we supply fully packaged and labelled honey in quantities of your choice. We have authority to export both packaged honey and bulk honey in drums. With over 26 years experience in honey exporting, we are happy to give you all the advice and help you need.
