Mānuka honey sold in New Zealand: is further regulation needed?
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is seeking feedback on options for mānuka honey sold in New Zealand.
Since 5 February 2018, all exported mānuka honey must meet the mānuka honey science definition to test that it is authentic.
We are now considering whether to apply the same science definition to New Zealand mānuka honey sold on the domestic market. It is important to understand the possible benefits, costs and impacts, and to think about how this might work in practice.
