International Export Restrictions

New Zealand only allows 2kg of honey to be sent overseas per order.

International customers need to be aware of the import rules for their own country before making an order. We advise you to research the honey importing rules and regulations of the country you are wanting to send honey to before purchasing our honey. We will not take any responsibility if your country does not accept our honey.

We are unable to send honey to the following locations:

  • Austria
  • China
  • Egypt
  • France
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Mexico
  • Philippines
  • Russia
  • Spain
  • South Africa
  • South Korea
  • Switzerland
  • Taiwan
  • Thailand
  • Western Australia

Products we CANNOT send internationally:

  • Bakers Honey – it has been heated to separate it from the wax and does not meet export standards.
  • Glass jars – they are too fragile and weigh heavier which can add a lot of cost to an international freight cost.

Returns/Refund Policy

If for any reason product(s) is damaged, or the product(s) received is not the product that was ordered, Mountain Valley Honey will arrange collection for return and replace goods.

If an item is damaged in transit or the product(s) received is not the product(s) ordered, the Customer must alert Mountain Valley Honey within 24 hours of receipt of the order.
