Prime Minister John Key Visits Manuka Health’s New State of the Art Honey Facility
New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key, has been given a tour of Manuka Health’s brand new multi-million dollar, purpose-built honey processing and distribution centre on a recent visit to Te Awamutu in the Waikato.
Mr Key was shown through the premises by Manuka Health CEO and founder, Kerry Paul. It is now the largest customised honey facility in New Zealand and combines internationally accredited laboratories, honey-drum storage, blending, packing and distribution under one roof.
Mr Paul, says it was a huge honour to have the Rt Hon John Key visit the new centre.
"I am thrilled that the Prime Minister could take some time out of his extremely busy schedule,” says Mr Paul. “Our employees were so excited that he visited and it was very special for me. The fact that the Prime Minister is interested in our development shows how far we’ve come since I founded the business nine years ago.”
“This new honey facility will enable us to continue our growth and increase exports into more countries. We will now be able to triple production to meet growing demand, with greater scale and efficiencies,” adds Mr Paul.
Manuka Health is one of the world’s largest natural healthcare companies, with an international distribution network spanning 45 countries. The company is passionate about using New Zealand’s native flora and fauna to create innovative, scientifically proven natural health products, capable of improving quality of life for people across the globe.
In 2008, Manuka Health launched the MGO Manuka Honey Quality System to show consumers how to select genuine manuka honey of different strengths. This has now been accepted as a trusted method of identifying genuine manuka honey by a number of organisations, including the New Zealand Ministry of Primry Industries (MPI).
