Manuka to soothe in the NHS

A manuka honey wound care product is to be used by the UK's National Health Service (NHS). The product, from Comvita the bee products company planning a listing on the main New Zealand Stock Exchange, is its first export for medical grade honey. Comvita recently acquired Api-Med Medical Honey which, in conjunction with its UK manufacturing partner Brightwake, last year achieved marketing approval for its manuka honey dressings in hospitals and clinics. Comvita sees the export as a major milestone in its extension from the “wellness” market into the medical market.
