The “very personal” import + doing good
When Stefan Jonas, director of the well-known TV series “Storm of Love”, came to New Zealand for the first time a few years ago and drove through a remote, fairytale valley through the Coromandel peninsula, he encountered this extraordinary honey.
He already does charities when shipping. The "Pfennigparade" social center for the integration of disabled people takes over the sending of orders via its website and is thus financially supported. And Stefan Jonas invests the profits from the sale in inventors and companies that manufacture and sell plastic from hemp. "This honey is a special gift from nature - and its distribution should do good in the world and make its contribution to counteracting environmental pollution".
MGO - is Manuka the same as Manuka?
Through his "very personal" contact with the beekeepers and the direct import, Stefan Jonas guarantees the authenticity and the gentle, species-appropriate production of the honey. In addition, he decided on a value of MGO 300+, as it can be used for all the diseases described above and still be offered at an attractive price.
The MGO salary (MethylGlyOxal) stands for the amount of the active ingredient in milligrams per kilogram of honey. Other honeys usually have a maximum of 2 to around 20mg MGO / kg. Manuka honey is unique in the world and many times stronger in its antioxidant effect.
The 300+ mg / kg MGO content of "309 Manuka Honey" is tested in New Zealand by state institutes in the laboratory, and additionally tested and confirmed in Germany by the Technical University of Food Chemistry Dresden, Professor Henle.
