Mānuka Honey MGO 514+
Honey Pot price: from $47.21
Sourced from remote, native forests in the Marlborough region, our Black Label Mānuka Honey is some of the highest quality Mānuka that New Zealand has to offer.
Mountain Valley’s Mānuka Honey (MGO 514+) is certified as having at least 514mg of Methylglyoxal per kilogram.
Methylglyoxal (MGO) is a naturally occurring compound and is largely responsible for Mānuka’s powerful antibacterial effect. While most raw honeys have antibacterial properties, the high levels of MGO give Mānuka an extra antibacterial punch. This discovery has made Manuka Honey the most sought after honey in the world.
Tested to meet the strict MPI guidelines for mono-floral Mānuka Honey, every jar of Mountain Valley Mānuka Honey is certified for its purity. We hold every single jar to the same strict standard, whether it is destined for Kiwi pantries or heading overseas.
Using opaque amber jars to protect the honey’s beneficial properties from sunlight, we’ve done everything we can to ensure you receive the highest quality and most loved Mānuka available.

We put a lot of careful thought and planning into ensuring that our harvest is sustainable, ethical and good for bees. While the majority of our hives will remain in the same location throughou
