Silberhorn Manuka honey is a totally natural raw honey that meets all of laboratory certified characteristics of Manuka honey; it was marketed by Silberhorn as 12+, we know of no other marketer of Manuka honey that sells unmodified, either by creaming or blending or adding non honey fillers in their Manuka honey. As many of you are aware the Silberhorn brand of Manuka honey was out of stock.
There appears to be considerable lobbying through the political and regulatory process tocrush small players like ourselves marketing dietary supplements and foods that promote good health naturally. Silberhorn’s product is all manufactured in New Zealand; it is interesting to note that our regulator Ministry for Primary Industries has banned us from putting certified laboratory test results on our Manuka honey (they claim we are making a therapeutic claim). After a lengthy period we have now been allowed to replace what was approved labelling by our regulator with yet another similar label that has now been approved after a very long drawn out expensive process.
