Sharing Nature

Since 1974

Sharing Nature Sharing Life



A new Vision

In 1974 Comvita founders Claude Stratford and Alan Bougen imagined people living healthy lives.  Bees were their inspiration, and honey their medicine.


Drawn by the hum

People were drawn to the same vision, hearing the stories of care for the community through good health. Paengaroa became home to Comvita, a place for people working with and learning from nature.



Through our colleagues, community & customers we share and receive knowledge and compassion, creating respectful relationships full of meaning and joy.


We constantly strive to improve the way we do things, we ask why and how might we, listen to others and nature, learning, understanding and sharing.


We dare to be different, we challenge the status quo, embrace new ways and learn from our mistakes.


What a beekeeper dreamed

Connecting people to nature and good health. That’s how it all started in 1974. Today Comvita continues that vision by researching and selecting sources of natural ingredients, carefully tending and harvesting them to preserve their purity.
