Taylor Pass Honey Co

Ensuring the highest product quality and integrity from hive to customer

Oritain can prove that Taylor Pass Honey Co have produced the following products, and batches which are consistent with having a New Zealand origin.


Taylor Pass Honey Co is based in the South Island of New Zealand, one of the most untouched and breath-taking places on earth.

They have been building their intimate knowledge of beekeeping for almost 30 years – since the day an elderly gentleman gifted company founder, Darren Clifford his first hive when he was just 14 years old.

Over the years, their supply and honey processing capacity has grown through their knowledge, understanding and relationships. At every step of the journey they have looked well beyond just growing bigger, constantly striving to create a greater connection to the honey they produce.  They value working ethically and with integrity and have a strong commitment to protecting New Zealand’s native environment. With vertical integration from the hive to the table, they have full supply chain product traceability and take immense pride in delivering a product which remains as raw and un-processed as possible - just as nature intended it.  

Today, Taylor Pass Honey Co is one of the largest honey operations in the South Island, yet they can still tell you exactly where each jar comes from, right down to the site it was harvested from, in this unique and untouched land they call home.

Oritain, through the use of innovative science, can verify that any product which has been produced and packed by Taylor Pass Honey Co under one of their associated brands is 100% New Zealand origin.
