The natural healthcare company said in a statement the award win was revealed as the Australian Reader’s Digest releases the results of its 2018 ‘Trusted Brands’ survey, highlighting local brands from across 70 categories, as chosen by more than 2,400 Aussies.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be recognised as the most trusted honey brand in Australia, one of our key international markets. Our products are tightly monitored throughout the process from hive to home so we can assure our consumers that what’s on the Manuka Health label, is in the pot. Gentle processing of our authentic New Zealand Manuka honey means our MGOTM Manuka honey products are unparalleled for their natural properties, guaranteeing our consumers receive high quality, premium New Zealand MGOTM Manuka honey,” said Manuka Health New Zealand general manager Marketing, Research, and Development – Kate Kember.
Manuka Health said the latest result follows a year of impressive growth in Australia for the New Zealand company, with the business growing over 30 per cent for the last two years.
