About Us

Why would you choose Ora Honey?  

We’re not asking you to trust the Marketing Department – You can trust the good old fashioned FACTS:

We can all agree that not all Honey is created equal and that it’s all too easy for a Honey Supplier to simply pronounce their product to be of the ‘highest quality’. It is another thing altogether to prove this claim and gear everything you do to maintaining its truth. When dealing with Ora Honey you can be sure our products have been scrutinised and lab tested to the most stringent standards. Alongside our rigorous internal quality control systems, our honey is also ‘European Union’ Certified and we are members of the UMF Honey Grading System. In the interests of complete transparency we post the lab results for each and every batch of Honey we  produce on this website so that you can be certain of its exact make up. We do this to give you peace of mind, our product is exactly  as we claim it to be – Our commitment to you is that  Ora Honey is, and will always be,  New Zealand Honey of the highest quality.

Our success is your guarantee

Established in 2009 by a local Maori family, based in the picturesque Waihau Bay on the remote East Cape of New Zealand’s North Island, Ora Honey are now well established producers, packers and exporters of fine New Zealand honey. From modest beginnings in a truly special part of the country, we have fast established a global presence with distributors in China, Croatia, Serbia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and Taiwan as well as regular shipments to the USA and Australia amongst others. You can take comfort in this hard won international reputation and client base – our Honey speaks for itself and we wouldn’t have it any other way.  

We’re big enough to compete and small enough to care

From humble beginnings, we remain humble. Despite state of the art production facilities and both domestic and international success, we remain a small team of dedicated individuals. We’re small – so we’re flexible and have great personal pride in what we do. Whether you are a purchaser of our Honey products or utilising our Contract Bottling and Labelling service - you will receive a level of personal service and integrity that can only come from a small passionate, experienced and knowledgeable team.

Please enjoy your visit to our website, and don’t hesitate to contact us should you wish to try the Ora Honey difference.

The Ora Honey Team
