The Onuku Team

With 50 years combined experience in logistics and international trade, Onuku Honey has quickly established a global market for its uniquely branded products.

Onuku Honey was established in 2016 by Hayden and Les Stowell. This fast growing business is built on their time-honoured traditional ideas and principles including:

• Honesty and integrity
• Quality and class
• Reliability, hard work and know-how.

The forming of Onuku Honey was based on the opportunity to utilize the vast experience of the team and its many national and international market contacts.


 Les and Hayden have been involved in Maori honey businesses which were fully integrated from having personal relationships with landowners through to high end gift and health food shops throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

As a Maori brand, Onuku will continue to build its relationships with other Maori stakeholders to expand and solidify its supply network and help support the development of the Maori economy.
