Organic brand of the year

2023 Winner of Organic Brand of the Year

TranzAlpine Honey is honoured to have won Organic Brand of the Year 2023.

This accolade is deeply special to us as it coincides with our 30th anniversary of being certified organic with BioGro™ NZ.

This award recognises a company, brand or product line with organic certification and/or Hua Parakore verification that is independently owned and based in Aotearoa. It is open to successful organic brands who are leading the way to mitigate climate change and build a just society in harmony with nature and the planet.

As 5th-generation beekeepers, we are a small team that continues to produce honey with simple, traditional beekeeping practices.

We take our responsibility to care for our environment and respect the bees as seriously as we did when we started beekeeping over 100 years ago.

We are proud to continue to produce our honey with the utmost care and attention to the bees and the land - sustainably and naturally organic.

Thank you to the organisers and judges of the Organic NZ Awards. TranzAlpine Honey is honoured to receive this accolade alongside so many other amazing organic industry leaders and producers.
