Wales-based honey brand Hilltop Honey has introduced its first range of soft-set Manuka Honeys for the UK market, available from selected retailers from 16 April.
The honey is available in three different strengths: 5+, 10+ and 15+, and all three variants will be packaged in 250g jars.
Hilltop Honey claims that the soft-set honey is served in the same format which makes it popular in New Zealand, making it a different option for the UK market as many UK honey brands sell honey products in runny formats.
The brand claims that the soft-set nature of the honey makes it the “perfect texture” for spreading on toast or adding to smoothies.
Hilltop Honey claims the new range is a highly-nutritious honey option, as Manuka honey has a high concentration of non-peroxide activity (NPA) compared to other kinds of honey.
NPA is an anti-bacterial property and is commonly used to help cure mild afflictions such as acne.
Scott Davies, Managing Director of Hilltop Honey, commented; “Hilltop Honey has always hoped to bring our customers a top-quality Manuka honey in its most original state.
“We are now incredibly proud of this product – it’s exceptional in taste, texture and character and we’re sure you’ll love it.”
“Manuka honey is regarded as one of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world. Not only does it taste good, but Manuka honey is praised for its nutritional and health benefits – it has been used to help cure acne, to treat burns, wounds and ulcers as well as helping sore throats and immunity.”
