A GLASS JAR, AND BETTER ENDOCRINE HEALTH
Although modern plastics have been a convenient addition to our lives for over fifty years, their use has come under the spotlight in recent times because of their proven ill effects on living organisms and, in particular, the human endocrine system. Sadly indeed, even those plastics which previously seemed so inert and without risk are now also drawing attention, including polyethylene-terephtalate, whose friendlier name "PET" made it almost as trustworthy and reliable as the family companion sleeping under the dinner table.
Focus of additional studies, other types of plastics used throughout the home, from those used to wrap meat, fish, tofu and most dairy products, or those plastics used in cute rubber ducks or pleasure devices, or that neat, new-smelling shower curtain, are proving dangerous to human longevity and good health as well, on account of their EDC (endocrine disrupting chemical) content.
Since our Mānuka honey aims to encourage good health and well-being to the greatest degree possible, Knopf Honey has begun to shift our packaging solutions back to glass, that noble, inert, traditional substance of decades and centuries past. Though less convenient, more fragile and more complicated to label, glass does not leach harmful chemicals into the food it holds, and that is indeed a perfectly suitable reason to use it, instead of anything made of plastic, of whatever kind.
Knopf Honey is the first (and only) producer in New Zealand to use recyclable GLASS jars for all its Mānuka honey packaging, and we see it as yet one more step toward the most direct and authentic journey for our honey, from our people-driven hives to your family table. We consider that the small risk of a breakable jar wins largely over a permanent one that cannot be foiled by simply being careful. Get a grip, as they say, and keep a good hand on that jar.
Indigenous tribal wisdom, dating back centuries... Hand in hand with Nature, sharing the land with care, harmony and respect.
an exotic touch TO your desserts
Mānuka honey is unlike any other honey. More flavour, more character, in ways that might be compared to round, fine and full-bodied wine next to simple fruit juice. Great chefs love its unique taste.
in the mouth, deep down, or on skin
Scientific studies have underlined mānuka honey's natural anti-microbial properties, helping to fight those nasty bacteria that promote plaque and tooth-decay, poor oral health, or sore throat.
wholistic health, inside and out
The Maori indigenous people of New Zealand were well aware of the special benefits of mānuka honey, which they considered one of Nature's great gifts. Make mānuka a part of your own life and diet.

We would like to thank those customers who use Knopf mānuka Honey and who have agreed to share a few words about their experience.
We have just received the second jar of honey. Since we started taking a teaspoon a day, we have not been sick. I have also noticed that my skin has a clearer and more even appearance. We are very satisfied with this product.
For the first time in years I have not had any cold or flu symptoms, despite the fact that on two instances, everyone around me was sick. So, very satisfied. My son's cold was also dramatically shortened (having taken it straight away, on first apparent symptoms). Yes, it's an investment but in the end you really win. Every winter I will be a loyal customer.
Incredible experience, with this Knopf Manuka honey recommended to me by a friend. I was hesitant at first, it's true that it's expensive for "honey" but I finally ordered it and the effect on our son's chickenpox spots was amazing. In just 48 hours, he started to heal and the marks disappeared from his face!
We bought Manuka honey because of my 4 1/2 year-old's repeated, sometimes violent, laryngitis. Nothing helped him during his attacks, but we were happy to see that this golden-coloured honey really did have a beneficial effect on his cough. Since then, the honey has been adopted without hesitation by the whole family to help them get through the winter more serenely. And what a treat for us all!
I started using Manuka honey because it was recommended to me by a family member who has been using it for some time. We use it for my 3 year-old son and my husband also, to boost their immune systems. The result was more than satisfactory after a winter's "cure" — not a single viral infection! In my own personal case, it is a question of living better with the pain caused by an auto-immune disease. Apart from the medicinal aspect, we all love the taste and my little boy loves his spoonful at breakfast.
I started Manuka honey to treat a flu. I was surprised how quickly I felt better compared to when I used standard chemical medication. Since then the whole family has been using it daily as a preventative measure and we rarely get sick. This honey boosts our immune system. It can be eaten on a piece of bread or by the spoonful, or in muesli or a warm drink. In addition, it works wonders for us in the event of small household injuries.
A real miracle product! I discovered manuka honey about a year ago and it is a real wonder! It replaces almost all our usual medicines and its properties are infinite! Knowing that it is made by a family from our region, I can only advise you to try it.
