Kiva Raw Manuka honey is harvested from the remote and pristine hills, forest, and coastal areas of New Zealand.
Our monofloral Manuka honey has been independently tested and rated to be at least UMF 15+ (equivalent to MGO 514+). We are a member of the UMF Honey Association license no. 2240.
What is a UMF Honey Rating? The UMF rating is a measure of the attributes and values that make up Manuka honey, and assures PURITY and QUALITY. UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor and is managed by the UMF Honey Association of New Zealand. The UMF rating can only by used by licensed users who meet strict set criteria which includes the monitoring and auditing of honey quality.
** Buying UMF rated Manuka honeys protects you from untested honey (often labeled 'active' or 'bio-active')
