Taylor Pass Honey Co's partnership with Oritain.


In the crisp mountain air, hidden valleys, kissed by sunlight, hum with the songs of abundant nature, and for brief periods native trees like Mānuka and Rata blossom and wildflowers bloom. Here their beekeepers work in harmony with the rhythm of the environment, letting nature guide them.

Inspired by the natural sustainable practices of the bees, they’ve long acted to ensure both the quality of their honey and our remarkable environment are preserved, so they can be enjoyed for generations. As a proud B Corporation, they strive to care, advocate and act for the benefit of people and the planet and work to prioritise the ethical sustainability in our beekeeping practices. From monitoring weight, temperature, harmonics, and hive environment they're able to ensure each hive is flourishing.

Each jar of Taylor Pass Honey tells a story of the land and the flowers that bloomed. Purity, authenticity, and origins are fully traceable. Their Mānuka Honeys are also given a certified Unique Mānuka Factor (UMF®) trust mark rating for healing potency.

Traceability like no other.

Oritain’s unique methodology applies forensic science and data to detect naturally occurring elements in a product or raw material. Soil composition, climate, altitude and other environmental factors all reveal the details of a product’s origin - which we call an Origin Fingerprint.

Once we’ve created an Origin Fingerprint, it can be used to audit our clients’ products at any point in the supply chain - to clearly differentiate the legitimate from the fraudulent.
