The people of Vanuatu are fiercely protective of “mother land”. It has sustained them with a rich harvest throughout the seasons. It has built a strong and proud nation. The tropical climate and deep volcanic soils are home to many exotic flowers, fruits, nuts and vegetables.
Vanuatu is truly a rare gem of unpolluted land and water, nothing artificial, an all natural balanced ecosystem in the South Pacific.
We believe in the strong bonds of family and community. Our approach is to sit and listen, work with and mentor our farming communities. Our long term partnerships ensure that we are supplied with the best products. It also means that our farmers are able to produce premium quality and receive the best price for their crops.
We know that our consumers appreciate being part of this living legacy.
And finally, a special thanks to my family for teaching me that the foundation of all relationships is built on honesty and trust. I continue to honor this tradition by building relationships with our farmers, our communities and our customers.
Let food be thy medicine…. Hippocrates
Bees in tropical Vanuatu are cared for in an extra special way. Hives are protected and inspected regularly to ensure that there are no diseases. The health of the bee and those that look after them is paramount.
No chemicals are used in the environment or in the hive.
We guarantee this through external certification.
Vanu’kai honey includes many different exotic flora sources. It includes nectar collected from coconut palms, plantation flowers and the rainforest. The honey is not heat treated and the filter allows the identification of pollen grains. The first thing you will notice is the exceptionally smooth mouth feel.
Our certified HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) factory ensures that we not only meet international food safety standards, but can also identify which bee house has supplied the honey in each pouch. The honey flows occur twice a year in Vanuatu.
Our apiarist Gilbert trains and mentors the local bee keepers that supply us.
Traditional Vanuatu farming systems are in harmony with nature. The bees forage in areas where there are absolutely no chemicals used. Vanu’kai honey has a naturally high HMF (Hydroxymethylfurfural) value. It is not heat treated.
Vanu’kai is sweeter than honey collected from temperate climates. It is pure honey with no other sugar or glucose added. This contributes to the smooth melt-in-the-mouth feel.
Medicinally honey is a complex sweetener that is high in antioxidants.
We have found that Vanu’kai honey benefits are typically much more effective than temperate climate honeys when used both internally and externally for various health ailments.
Every honey flow is analyzed to make sure it meets international food standard Codex requirements.
The results are available on request. It takes bees approximately 1 million flower visits to produce one pouch of honey. There is a limited amount of honey available from two flows through the year.
Each year the honey has slight variations due to different seasonal influences. The variation is in the color and flavour but not in the quality.
