Note: in light of the recent news reports over fraudulent and mislabeled manuka honey in the UK (in Grocer, and previous in Sunday Times in UK, and NZ Herald in NZ), this email contact will be regularly monitored, including over the weekend, and we have some additional information to add.

Or please contact directly - Simon Kingston on 07963171499.

Mr Kingston has been directly involved in manuka honey sales in the UK for over ten years. He has also been on BBC radio consumer shows providing relevant information.

Short additional comments from Simon Kingston of The New Zealand Honey Shop:

1. The reason most people buy manuka honey, and are prepared to pay a higher price for it, is because they are expecting to receive something unique and extra from other honeys. (the special non-peroxide based activity)

2. As people cannot see or taste the unique extra activity they rely on the label presentation and information from shop staff to choose a product.

3. The Consumer Protection Regulations have been in force since 2008 but it is the responsibility of authorities for their enforcement. They also impose a responsibility for 'professional diligence' on businesses. Appropriate verification testing for manuka honey's activity has been available in the UK through FERA since 2011.

( side note: Importantly, the CPR's specifically introduced a concept of 'professional diligence', defined within the law as follows:
    - means the standard of special skill and care which a trader may reasonably be expected to exercise towards consumers which is commensurate with either a) honest market practice in the trader's field of activity, or b) the general principle of good faith in the trader's field of activity.)

4. Mr Kingston supports the Food Standards Agency issued warning but calls for  urgent and immediate verification tests of manuka honey on UK shop shelves in the consumer's interest.
