Northland Pure Honey Ltd is wholly owned by Whangarei Bee Club Incorporated. Northland Pure Honey (NPH) owns and operates an EU accredited honey extraction plant in central Whangarei. Only Whangarei Bee Club members’ honey can be extracted through the plant.
Extraction charges are:
$15.50+GST / super
When using the extraction plant you have the options of:
- Retaining all your honey, in food grade buckets to take home
- For larger amounts of honey, placing it in 200l drums ready for transport to your chosen destination
- Selling your surplus, or all of your honey, to NPH at market rates
All extracted honey is tutin tested at a cost of $33.40 plus GST per extraction. If the honey is sold to or through NPH then the cost of the testing is covered within the sale.
All honey extracted through the plant is eligible for export certification, at an additional cost, providing that it does not leave our handling area prior to sale. NOTE IF YOUR HONEY IS TO BE SOLD FOR EXPORT, YOU MUST BE REGISTERED WITH MPI (Beekeeper List for Official Assurances) PRIOR TO EXTRACTION OF YOUR HONEY. The registration link is: http://www.mpi.govt.nz/exporting/food/honey-and-bee-products/
A storage fee is charged on 200l drums of honey that remain in our storage area more than one week after laboratory test results are received.
