Comvita was founded in Paengaroa, Bay of Plenty in 1974 by two beekeepers, who set out to connect people to nature for the benefits of good health.
More than 40 years later, Comvita’s founding principles still guide the company; preserve the purity of source, share knowledge, replant and replenish. Still operating out of Paengaroa, Comvita exports its health care products to more than 18 countries worldwide.
The company pioneered the development and use of medical grade Manuka honey, a reflection of its commitment to developing innovative products, backed by credible research. Comvita sources bee products through local, independent suppliers and its own North Island hives.

100% Pure New Zealand Honey
100% Pure New Zealand Honey is a company focused on delivering customers the simple pleasures in life – pure, authentic, naturally occurring food and distinctive flavours.
Local, privately-owned and independent, 100% Pure New Zealand Honey has been supplying genuine UMF® Manuka, Clover and NZ floral honeys to a wide range of countries for 20 years.
We are committed to sourcing and delivering the highest quality products and building enduring relationships with our customers around the globe. Our focus is supporting them to deliver world-class products to market.
Supplier relationships are equally critical and we work with a group of passionate, independent beekeepers who are the best in the industry. Our honey is sourced from all parts of the country, providing us with exceptional quality and variety.
Being a focused honey packer and exporter, as opposed to a beekeeping operation, we are completely supportive of our supply community. We want to work with them to provide good returns and consistent growth for the future. Importantly we are not a risk to their business in terms of competition for hive sites or replacing their volume with our own honey.
100% Pure New Zealand Honey has also been a passionate contributor to industry development over the past 20 years with direct involvement in governance, unification and sponsoring events. We see this as an opportunity to contribute to the ongoing wellbeing of our industry.
If you are interested in working with an established, independent and industry-focused company, please give us a call on (03) 688 7150 or visit us at www.purenewzealandhoney.com.
Ceracell Beekeeping Supplies (NZ) Limited
Who We Are and What We Do
It’s all about the bees and the beekeepers! Without them there is no apiculture industry, so Ceracell Beekeeping Supplies are here to help the people who help the bees.
What do we offer that maybe others don’t? The largest range of equipment, supplies, after-sales-service and advice. We are run by people who keep bees, so we understand many of the issues, difficulties and problems beekeepers face on a day-to-day basis. We constantly look for products and ways of doing things that will make the life of beekeepers easier, more effective, and more profitable. And we listen to our customers because we’re not perfect, but we always want to improve.
As an organisation, and as individuals in the organisation, we ultimately want to be a blessing to those people we come in contact with on a daily basis.
Pharmapac is once again proud to be a significant sponsor of the Apiculture NZ Conference.
At Pharmapac, we don’t view our products simply as packaging solutions. We know that in order to present the best product on the world market, your product must have packaging that will handle the stress of production, deal with the rigours of freight and present your brand, label & product in the best possible light.
We look at your products from start to finish – whether that may be on the production floor, grocery channel, on a ship heading for foreign shores or in a local honey shop – and take a genuine interest in helping to grow your sales.
When we say we want to grow your sales, that’s not just words. We back up what we say with action. Every year for the past 6 years, Pharmapac has successfully introduced new products in the Honey Packaging range. To continue a good habit and because we foresee demand for the jar, for 2017 Pharmapac will be launching 3 x 125g jars in square, round & hex.
Pharmapac is 100% New Zealand owned by a family that is dedicated to supporting NZ industry. Come and visit us at our stand, website (www.pharmapac.co.nz) or call us on 09 444 9631.

MegaBee is a perfectly balanced, high protein honeybee nutritional protein supplement scientifically designed to improve bee health and increase overall life expectancy. This best part is…it actually works!
Originally developed in 2001 by nutrition specialist Dr. Gordon Wardell Ph.D, MegaBee has been shown in multiple independent university and government research studies to triple brood production, stimulate royal jelly production, and increase the individual bee lifespan by as much as 20%.
What’s our secret? We fused our strong foundation of cutting edge research and our dedication to using only the highest quality ingredients the world has to offer. The result is an all-in-one feed with zero guess work. We’ve added all 10 essential amino acids bees need, pH balanced the product to support a healthy gut, and made sure bees love the taste.
Needless to say, we can get hives to do better than just survive, we can get them to thrive. www.megabee.com
MegaBee Powder & Ready-Made Patties are exclusively distributed in New Zealand by: NZ Beeswax Ltd, [email protected], 03 693 9189
