Our thoughts are with everyone across New Zealand impacted by Cyclone Gabrielle, but especially our team in the Hawkes Bay region. We are pleased to report that the team and their families are safe and well.
Naturally, our priority is ensuring the ongoing safety of our team and putting in place immediate and specific support for the Hawkes Bay team, as a number have been evacuated from their homes after suffering from significant flooding.
Our own Hawkes Bay facility (where we have a team of 13, an Apiary branch and an extraction facility) was also evacuated due to rising flood water and remains inaccessible at this time.
From an operational perspective we have moved extraction facilities to an alternative Comvita site where the team are ensuring that effective operations are continuing.
We will provide further updates in due course.
Comvita’s interim results will be announced on Thursday 23rd February.

With a team of 550+ people globally, united with more than 1.6 billion bees, we are the global market leader in Mānuka honey and bee consumer goods.

We are growing industry scientific knowledge on bee welfare, Mānuka trees and the many benefits of Mānuka honey and propolis. We have pledged to be carbon neutral by 2025 and carbon positive by 2030, and we are planting 1-2million native trees every year. Comvita has operations in Australia, China, North America, South East Asia, and Europe – and of course, Aotearoa New Zealand, where our bees are thriving.
