• 2016 Manuka Honey Season

We have just brought in the hives for 2015 to their wintering sites and wow what a year. We have had an amazing season! All our bees are healthy and we really couldn't have asked for anything more. We’ve got a lot of honey this year, it’s just been magical. For the few of you who have had the chance to get your hands on our 2013/14 honey you will be pleased to know we are now only about a year away from releasing our retail stocks of Avatar manuka to the world. It’s been a fantastic ten plus year journey beekeeping and we are very excited to now be moving from wholesale into the retail market. With how the manuka honey market has just kept growing, our decision to hold back and come to market with the best manuka honey, is really looking like its going to be well worth the effort.
We are still seeing manuka honey prices worldwide skyrocketing and demand increasing every year, helped by celebrity endorsements and the never ending public praise for manuka honey. It looks like its going to be an exciting few years.
Just want to take a moment to thank the team at Avatar. They are all working hard behind the scene to get everything ready for our transition from the local New Zealand wholesale market into the  worldwide retail markets. Who would have guessed 10 years ago, we would here now with our stunning new website and heading overseas for food expos and introducing Avatar Manuka Honey to the world?
