These benefits are attributed to the high level of enzymes present in New Zealand Manuka honey that are a key ingredient in the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) – a global standard for measuring the antibacterial strength of Manuka.
The industry has struggled to keep up with double digit growth in demand for high UMF honey, largely due to a shortage of new generation Manuka plants for large-scale planting.
MyFarm offers investments in the development of Manuka forests through a share farming agreement with Comvita. Under the agreement, Comvita supplies its new generation Manuka varieties, manages plantation development and provides apiary services. Investors receive an initial lease payment followed by a share of honey revenue as the plantation starts producing.
