THE MOUNT SOMERS HONEY RANGE
GENUINE MANUKA HONEY UMF® CERTIFIED
Only the best Manuka honey brands have what it takes to be labelled as UMF certified, pure Manuka honey. Well established and world-renowned, this rating indicates the quality, purity, potency and strength of each individual batch of Manuka honey.
The UMF quality mark asses the key signature markers, confirming measured levels of methylglyoxal (MGO), Dehydroxymethylfurfural (DHA) and Leptosperin. Initially identified as the components giving Manuka honey its unique antibacterial properties, the UMF rating is directly linked to the amount of MGO found.

Mount Somers is a brand committed to the protection of the Manuka Honey Industry in NZ. We understand that products need to be of the very highest quality to be worthy of ‘Produced in New Zealand’ tag. We do not blend and label our product offshore or shy away from regulation.

CHAMPION TO THE CONSUMER
At Mount Somers we put the consumer first. We believe that when you buy a jar of Honey then at the least, you should receive a ‘real’ jar of Honey. Sadly, we live in a world of fake, deliberate cost cutting adulteration and blatant counterfeit. That is not us. We don’t compromise just to make it cheaper. Mount Somers is what it is, pure, untarnished and untampered, unpasteurized, raw and natural. If it does not carry the UMF quality mark, then it may not be real. Only honey that passes the MPI Manuka Honey Science Definition, qualifies to carry the UMF logo.
