Our Company

Pouatu Mānuka Limited is a boutique company producing honey from New Zealand’s unique Mānuka tree, also an award-winning multifloral Forest honey.
Our location is in the Forgotten World, west central North Island. It’s an area of wild, natural beauty and a place where our bees can thrive undisturbed.
We manage every part of the process to ensure quality -  from land care, to hive management, to harvesting and packaging.
Our owners include experienced beekeepers who all love being part of this amazing industry.
Honey has been around forever; it is nature’s own superfood!

Our Name

Mount Pouatu is the name of the prominent peak on our land – a known landmark.
Pou  means an important marker. Atu refers to presenting or offering.
Working with our name we say our wonderful honey ‘gives back and restores’, we figured that’s pretty much a perfect description.

The forgotten world

The Forgotten World is one of New Zealand’s hidden gems; an untouched landscape that still belongs to nature. Journey deep into the North Island’s hinterland where rugged greenery covers hilly landscapes, birds sing to each other, and bees happily harvest their nectar from our most magical plant: the Mānuka bush. Pouatu coexists with the bees in this piece of paradise, this is their land.  Our premium New Zealand Mānuka honey is a taste of wilderness; complex, rich with wonder and unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
