Stuff – Gloriavale businesses stung by loss of Mānuka honey licence over use of child labour and worker exploitation
By Amanda Cropp – Stuff – 11/09/2022
Two Gloriavale Christian Community businesses have been banned from using a Mānuka honey trademark over treatment of their workers.
The Unique Mānuka Factor Honey (UMF) Association has revoked a licence jointly held by Forest Gold and Lamohka honey brands, saying their actions had put its “good will and reputation” at risk.
This latest blow comes after Gloriavale’s Moo Chews kids snacks and Pure Vitality health supplements were stripped of their government-endorsed FernMark licences which require holders to be of good character and comply with New Zealand laws.
