Our Vision


Rob Haines had a vision to create New Zealand’s leading, and most respected, Manuka Honey brand. His son Sam took this vision and worked tirelessly to realise the dream of producing an excellent quality, affordable product, that is beautifully packaged and presented.  Products that we ourselves would purchase or would be proud to gift to a friend.


Manuka South has achieved all this and more.  We have a passion for providing natural, healthy honey and other products from the hive to the jar and we remain committed to continuing to use the finest ingredients and honey in Manuka South.  We recognize that each and every one of our customers, be they home consumers, retailers, or customers providing distinctive gifts are important partners in our journey and we aim to meet and exceed our customers expectations.


We also aim to inspire, enable, and empower our business customers to be successful in growing their business through long term relationships founded on honesty, transparency and loyalty.  To support this we provide an enjoyable and nurturing work environment, which encourages our employees to be highly productive and grow personally and professionally. We operate tirelessly in pursuing new growth opportunities while continually seeking to improve the way we do things.
