Capilano Celebrates Manuka Win, Launching High Strength Manuka to Support Aussie Beekeepers

At Capilano, we’re deeply committed to the Australian honey industry – so it brings us great pleasure to unveil the latest members of our product family: Capilano Active Manuka Honey MGO 100+ and Capilano Active Manuka Honey MGO 550+ into Woolworths!

This introduction, along with our recent trademark victory regarding the term ‘Manuka’, further solidifies our dedication to supporting Australian beekeepers.

“We know how important supporting local beekeepers is to Aussie families and we’re thrilled to have this opportunity to increase the availability of one of nature’s greatest superfoods – Manuka honey,” says Dr Ben McKee, COO of Capilano and Chairman of the Australian Manuka Honey Association.

So what makes Manuka Honey so special? 

What makes our Manuka honey stand out is the presence of methylglyoxal, commonly referred to as MGO. This bioactive ingredient is attributed to Manuka honey’s well-documented antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and wound-healing properties. The MGO number indicates the strength of these bioactive properties… the higher the MGO number, the more potent the honey’s bioactive properties!

A win for the Australian honey industry

The Australian honey industry has celebrated a recent win with New Zealand’s Intellectual Property Office (IPO) ruling that NZ honey producers have no exclusive claim to the term “Manuka honey”. Once a controversial debate, the Australian Manuka Honey Association (AMHA) has welcomed the ruling as a “common sense outcome” along with the Australian honey industry, including Capilano.

More and more consumers are looking to incorporate bioactive natural foods into their diets. With the launch of these two new all-Australian Capilano Manuka Honey products, we are giving everyone even more reason to shop and support local,” says Dr Ben McKee.
