The Manuka Process

It all starts with the bees. Berringa bees forage on Leptospermum (aka Teatree) plants in the pristine coastal areas of QLD & NSW, Australia - a unique environment ideal for creating high strength antibacterial Manuka. 

Bees making honey

Once the bees have done their part, Berringa cold extracts, filters and gently warms the Manuka honey before bottling – and that’s it! There are no additives, no excess processing and definitely no high temperatures. This means that Berringa Manuka has a stronger taste and a thicker, stickier and darker consistency to regular honey.

Antibacterial Strength

Berringa have each batch of Manuka independently tested to verify its antibacterial strength, so you can be confident that when you buy Berringa Manuka, you are buying the real deal.

You may already be aware of the UMF (unique Manuka factor) grading system, which is used for New Zealand Manuka honey. However for Australian Manuka, the MGO (methylglyoxal) system is alternatively used to measure the honey’s antibacterial strength.
