Who Are We?
Wedderspoon Organic holds an intense passion for holistic health rooted in the rolling hills of New Zealand, where every flavorful drop of Wedderspoon Manuka honey is born.  We work with master beekeepers to champion a sustainable, bee-first ecology and gentle harvest the way Mother Nature intended.  The result is a wide and expanding portfolio of incredibly delicious and intensely wholesome food products made with one of New Zealand’s national treasures: Manuka honey.

Wedderspoon introduced the U.S. market to Manuka honey two decades ago and continues today as the #1 Manuka honey brand in America.  And we’re just getting started.  Most Americans are still discovering the rich flavor, silky texture, and enormous wellness benefits that make Manuka the most premium honey on earth.  Our deep beekeeper and supply chain relationships lend us a distinct advantage in the market, including exclusive access to Organic-certified Manuka.  We use it to make honey, honey drops, honey pops, lozenges, throat sprays, and more.

We are entering a new phase of concentrated focus in our business to position our brand for growth, primarily on digital channels and in retail stores, where we hold tremendous shelf space in over 70,000 points of distribution.  Our brand and sub-category are growing fast and are on the cusp of discovery as the next great superfood–one that tastes sweet and amazing.  Now is a special time to join the team and take the reins to drive significant growth with an innovative, creative, ambitious mindset.
