We entered our Marokopa Spring honey into the 'Outstanding NZ Food Producers Awards' and it's just won GOLD!
We were up against many other products in 'the earth' category such as; honey, spreads, condiments, loaves, crackers, and nuts. Outstanding NZ Food Producer Award's organiser Kathie Bartley says “This was a great result for Sweetree, we had some awesome honey products this year.” We're proud that Waikato honey is up there on top! Waikato's pasture and bush, and of course our bees are pretty special!
The Outstanding NZ Food Producers awards celebrate Kiwis who harvest, grow and make food and drinks. Judging was on these criteria:

- SUSTAINABILITY: Sustainable business practices in producing the product (10%)
- BRAND STORY: The story of your brand, how you got here, where you’re going, what makes your product special and demonstrates your passion. (10%).
We're sure you'll love Marokopa Spring honey as well! Check out our feedback from customers:
"There is always honey in our house but it's usually the budget brand. After tasting Sweetree Marokopa Spring honey I can see why people pay the extra price. I was told that people eat it by the spoonful and I was thinking to myself that honey isn't that tasty that I would ever do that. Well, after seeing the yummy looking honey in the lovely labelled jar I had to try it and wow, it was yummo. I don't think I could go back to the budget brand now."

"I received my order of honey today and I just wanted to thank you guys so much for the effort you put in. The package was securely wrapped, it was fast delivery and I honestly couldn't be happier. I was not expecting even half of the effort put in so thank you so much. I just wanted to let you guys know that you are doing a great job and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again as well as recommending your business."
