THE APICULTURE NZ NATIONAL HONEY COMPETITION
Our judges are world-class and will use internationally recognised scales of points to judge your honeys. Trophies, medals and certificates are awarded to winners, as well as a number of specially designed stickers indicating the gold, silver or bronze-winning status of the honey. Winners can negotiate with Kiwi Labels to print further batches of these stickers or have them incorporated into their current label designs.
The Supreme winner- the highest scoring Exhibitor calculated by using the sum of the top three scores of an individual exhibitor in classes A-F, will receive their trophy at the Gala Dinner. All winners will have their products displayed at the conference and published on the Apiculture NZ website.
There is a new category this year called the People’s Choice and is based purely on taste. Details on this exciting new category can be found in the schedule of classes and entry criteria form below.
All conference attendees will have the chance to taste honey competition entries at a tasting event following judging.
This year the judging is taking place before Conference so all goods must be delivered prior to Conference. Full details are outlined in the National Honey Competition rules below.
