The origin of MADHU
The origin: MADHU borrows its origin from Sanskrit, one of the oldest written languages, and stands for sweetness or honey. The word, MADHU, still serves as the root for numerous Indo-Aryan languages such as mead, miel, medus, miod, and many others. Therefore, it was a clear decision for us to present high-quality honey under the name MADHU Honey.
A Magic Moment
It all started in September 2013 in a small New York studio apartment. We just returned from a long trip from Chiang Mai, Thailand. Autumn had announced itself, the afternoon sun hung low over the East Village, bathing 1st Street and 1st Avenue in a warm glow. With luggage in hand and a large trekking backpack on our backs, we entered our friend Shawn’s apartment – and stopped in surprise in the doorway. Amazing things were happening before our eyes: the sun was shining through the windows, illuminating a large, crystal glass jar that stood on the kitchen table and enveloped the entire room in a luminous, golden-yellow pattern. What was in that jar?
An exceptional gift
On the trail of honey
Over the work of several seasons, we built a network of beekeepers in New Zealand. Then when my good friend, Bennet, got into the business idea, the venture MADHU Honey was born, specializing in Manuka Honey selection.
We buy the honey directly, take care of all transportation needs and distribute this honey under our brand MADHU Honey. We always want to be able to trace where our honey comes from. Only in this way are we able to vouch for quality with confidence and live up to the promise of Pure Raw Honey and Manuka.
