In 1944 Percy Berry bought nine acres in Arataki Road, Havelock North. With his son Ian, Percy registered 131 hives to Arataki Apiaries Ltd, and began a journey that resulted in the Arataki Honey we know and love.
Today, family-owned Arataki Honey has three manufacturing sites across the North and South Islands of New Zealand, employs over 100 people and is home to 1.5 billion bees.
