New Zealand is an internationally recognised source of high-quality natural health products
New Zealand’s historical focus on agriculture and food production, its natural environment, and wealth of unique resources have combined to create a flourishing natural and complementary health products sector.
From harnessing the antibacterial properties of mānuka honey, to research and development that has identified bioactive properties in New Zealand grown fruit, the country has a long track record of identifying and utilising the medicinal and nutritional uses of natural products.
Exports include plant and marine oils and extracts, fruit extracts, medicinal honey products, deer velvet, botanical and dairy products.
New Zealand’s natural health products industry is worth NZ$2.3 billion annually and growing, with major markets already established in Asia/Pacific, North America, and Europe. Stringent manufacturing and employee wellbeing regulations, and a commitment to maintaining New Zealand’s world leading animal health status, underpin the expanding sector.
