Have you heard about Wai Mānuka? Let us catch you up. The New Zealand Mānuka honey beverage journey started only a brief time ago - New Year’s Eve 2019 in fact. In light of the occasion, the 3 Māori Boys had the idea of creating a healthy, non-alcoholic beverage they could proudly take to social events and share with whānau and friends.
3 Māori Boys Limited are mates, Lance, Wayne and Joe. Their goal is to take the finest of New Zealand, Aotearoa and offer it to the world.
While coming up with this business venture, they kept being drawn to Mānuka honey, its well-being benefits, unique taste and demand. They knew that by adding natural New Zealand ingredients, they could create a beverage that reflected their expectations of the product as well as their personal values and Māori culture.
Not even a global pandemic could stop this award-winning company. It was selected as an official supplier to the 36th America’s Cup and now has premium partnerships thought New Zealand including Government House, Sky City, QT Hotels, Sofitel Hotels, and Farro Fresh in Auckland. The company’s focus over the next six months is to continue to build local partnerships, grow sales revenue and use that as a platform to enter the export market.
As 2021 winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Horizon Energy Group Business Excellence Awards, and a 2021 finalist at the Wellington Gold Awards, 3 Māori Boys has an exciting future ahead. Māori Television has shared Lance, Wayne and Joe’s story which you can watch online at https://www.maoritelevision.com/docos/three-maori-boys-go-global
