Exciting news for honey enthusiasts and sustainability champions alike! Kinloch Honey has proudly been crowned as a winner in the prestigious Great Lake Taupō Business Awards.
This award comes as recognition in the "Excellence in Sustainability / Toitūtanga" category, underscoring our unwavering commitment to environmentally sustainable practices.
The Great Lake Taupō Business Awards exist to champion businesses striving for sustainable growth, development, and excellence. This nomination is not just a testament to our business practices but also a thumbs up 👍 for our dedication to preserving the natural world that our bees call home so nga mihi for noticing 😊
At Kinloch Honey, sustainability isn't just a buzzword; it's a way of life. As Lee Tahere, our owner, so aptly puts it:
"The bees rely heavily on the environment to forage for their food to survive. It only seems right that we do everything we can to preserve their environment."
Every aspect of our operation, from our solar-powered honey processing plant to our Mānuka planting programs, resonates with this ethos. We invest in electric vehicles, prioritize recycling, and champion initiatives like pollination, ensuring our bees play their vital role in sustaining ecosystems. Additionally, our proactive approach to pest control has led to the thriving of bird life, including the presence of many kiwi, singing in the backdrop of our operations.
Dive deeper, and you'll discover the heart of our sustainable approach - Ruatiti Wilderness. This magnificent, untouched sanctuary nestled amidst the grandeur of Ruapehu, Tongariro, and Ngauruhoe is where our bees find their summer solace. They navigate the vast expanse of this wilderness, drawing nectar from the abundant Mānuka bushes. The result? Mānuka honey, a product that perfectly embodies the pristine beauty and essence of Ruatiti. Every drop of this honey is not just a flavorful delight but also a symbol of Kinloch Honey's commitment to preserving nature's untouched beauty.
The winners for these business awards were announced on the 11th of August at the Great Lake Centre, Taupo. We had a great time catching up with all the other nominee's, friends and supporters.
This nomination is a sweet validation of our efforts. At Kinloch Honey, we believe in weaving tales of sweetness and sustainability in every jar. We invite you to be part of our journey, to savour honey that truly makes a difference. Cheers to a world where business and nature thrive in harmony! 🍯🌿
