Labelling your bee products

If you package honey or bee products, you need to comply with the labelling requirements in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. These include nutrition information and special warnings for bee products containing royal jelly.

The following information has been prepared to help packers of mānuka honey meet the requirements of the Food Standards Code. The definition section applies to mānuka honey only, but the rest of the information applies also to other honey types packed for retail sale.
