MPI 5 Attributes - Chemical and DNA Markers
MPI 5 Attributes - Manuka Testing
As of December 2017, MPI have enforced a set of requirements for testing of honey for export that is packed and labelled as a monofloral or multifloral mānuka honey.
The MPI definition consists of five attributes which include four chemical markers (MPI Mānuka Chemical Markers) and a DNA marker from mānuka pollen (MPI Mānuka DNA Marker). All five attributes need to pass MPI’s definition for the honey to be labelled as mono-floral Mānuka, or multi-floral Mānuka, for export.
In order to be classified as either a monofloral mānuka or multifloral mānuka the honey must meet minimum levels for all components of the MPI 5 Attributes test including both the chemical and DNA markers.
Please note, the MPI 5 Attributes (GREX) does not apply to honey being traded within NZ. For up to date information regarding these export requirements, please refer to the MPI website.
Analytica hold full ISO 17025 accreditation under IANZ for both the MPI Mānuka Chemical Marker and DNA marker tests.
