Quality Management

Honey New Zealand operates under extensive quality management programmes including Risk Management Programme (RMP).

Honey New Zealand has a registered Risk Management Programme with NZFSA.

Since 1st July 2006 all manufacturers who store, process or pack bee products for export must have a registered RMP to be eligible for export certification. A RMP is designed to identify, control, manage, eliminate or minimise hazards to ensure the product is fit for its intended use. A registered RMP is a legal document, binding on the business it relates to. RMP implementation is verified at regular intervals by independent verifiers.
