First Honey Factory

Welcome to our state-of-the-art processing facility based in Masterton, New Zealand. This is the mother-hive for First Honey, where our team of dedicated beekeepers, technicians and scientists work to process the medical grade Mānuka honey used in our products.

The extraction and processing of medical honey is very different to that of table honey and requires specialized processes to minimize environmental contaminants.

At First Honey we use the most stringent ISO 13485 standards to ensure the integrity of every product. Our ApiPure™ system is a unique medical grade filtration and certification process that ensures our honey is monitored, tested and ready for use in our medical products. Each batch is tested by an independent laboratory and is sterilized to make it safe for medical use.

Our team takes great pride in delivering this healing honey to the world.
