Arataki Honey is the number one beekeeping business in the Southern Hemisphere, with 20,000 hives across New Zealand.
Arataki Honey was established in 1944 and is run in two parts. The Hawke's Bay Division produces and packs honey for the local and export market, provides local pollination services and is the site of the Arataki Honey Visitors Centre. The Rotorua Division specialises in live bee exports, queen bees, packing honey and providing pollination services.
Honey is healthy and delicious, and there’s no better place to get yours than Arataki. And if you’re in the neighbourhood come and see us at our Visitor Centre in Hawke’s Bay. Taste some honey, meet the bees, learn how honey is made - it’s a full sensory experience and it’s free!
From hive to honey pot, every step of the way, quality and traceability are key to making New Zealand’s finest honeys.
