The UMF™ grading system is specific to New Zealand – the higher the UMF™ number, the greater the presence of Methylglyoxal (MG) and other natural properties.
All of our Mānuka honey products are UMF™ certified to ensure authenticity and grading.
Each jar of our Single Origin Mānuka Honey displays the UMF™ icon with appropriate grade number, as well as our own unique batch number in order to trace and authenticate the origin of our honey.
The UMFHA™ (Unique Mānuka Factor Honey Association) was founded in New Zealand in 1998 as an independent body to authenticate and grade Mānuka honey.
The goal is to both protect the industry, and the consumer. UMF™ is widely recognised as the only association to actively test and uphold the industry to a specific standardised model.
All New Zealand Mānuka honey that displays the UMF™ grading must be registered and licenced with the UMFHA™..
