Our Heritage, Our Source

ManukaMed Founder Denis Watson

Denis Watson
ManukaMed Researcher and Founder

ManukaMed, founded by research scientist Denis Watson, was developed with the vision to heal patients around the world who suffer from chronic wounds. Our parent company is based in New Zealand, and in collaboration with dozens of landowners across the island, is responsible for the exclusive monofloral sourcing and production of ManukaMed’s medical grade honey or Leptospermum scoparium (LS). With the help of more than 30,000 bee hives owned by the parent company Watson & son, ManukaMed scientists are able to use the uniquely potent Manuka honey, originating from the nectar of the indigenous Manuka tree flower.
