Mount Somers - Delivering Quality Mānuka Honey Fresh From New Zealand
Mount Somers Honey is a statement of integrity and a genuine promise of honest quality.
Founded on a bee-keeping heritage of more than 100 years.Midlands Apiaries proudly developed the Mount Somers brand to firstly showcase Mānuka Honey and secondly to champion the other fantastic native Honey varieties that the unique landscape of New Zealand produces.
Only the best Mānuka honey brands have what it takes to be labelled as UMF™-certified, pure Mānuka honey. Well established and world-renowned, this rating indicates the quality, purity, potency and strength of each individual batch of Mānuka honey.
The UMF™ quality mark assesses the key markers, confirming measured levels of methylglyoxal (MGO), Dehydroxymethylfurfural (DHA) and Leptosperin. MGO is the organic compound initially identified in Mānuka honey which possesses unique antibacterial properties; the UMF™ rating is directly linked to the amount of MGO found.
