Watson & Son manuka honey is at the cornerstone of quality, sustainability and research. Founded in 2004 by scientist, beekeeper and nature lover Denis Watson, the company has settled in the beautiful rolling hills of the Wairarapa region of Northern New Zealand.
40,000 hives have been placed to harvest the nectar from the petite pink and white flowers from the native manuka shrubs that grow in the area. But what is it that makes each jar of Watson & Son manuka honey so unique? Every single one can be traced back to the hive from where it was originated. Thanks to new advances in technology, you can read the label of any Watson & Son manuka honey jar, and view exactly where your honey was sourced.
“We are fully integrated from beehive to market, placing us in a unique position of being able to manage every stage of the production process and to ensure full traceability back to the hive,” says Denis.
