UMF® stands for Unique Mānuka Factor. As a quality assurance mark it ensures quality and purity of UMF® honey products.
UMF® can only be used by licence holders who follow UMF® Honey Association’s stringent Code of Practice. This includes independent audits to ensure compliance with UMF® quality standard production facility requirements. The association appoints independent companies to regularly check licensees’ samples from the marketplace. This helps ensure all the UMF®-certified Mānuka honey are authentic and the highest quality products.
