Happy Valley manuka honey this week featured in the story Liquid Gold on ABC television.
“Bees make Manuka honey from the nectar of Leptospermum scoparium, the Manuka bush, which grows wild across New Zealand.
“Its unique active ingredient methylglyoxal fights bacterial infections. Hospitals use the most bioactive Manuka for wound dressings and a growing body of research points to manuka’s general health and beauty boosting properties.
“Novak Djokovic is just one of Manuka’s growing band of devotees. Others who swear by its benefits include film star Gwyneth Paltrow.”
“Mark Harvey is the general manager of Happy Valley. It bottles 15 times the amount of honey it did six years ago and exports to the US, Europe and Asia.”
Happy Valley’s sales to customers in the USA and Europe are made through ExportX. Happy Valley manuka honey is now the top-selling UMF honey on Amazon.com.
