Pūtake (Māori) to originate, origin and source.
Pūtake was founded in 2011 by Renee and Dale De Luca, with a goal of having the healthiest bees in NZ and producing some darn good honey!
In July 2016, Pūtake and Comvita announced a 50:50 joint venture to continue to build a great wholesale honey business in the South Island. Having Comvita as an equity partner aligns us with a business that has significant industry and market presence, scale and relationships. Working together as partners assist Pūtake’s speed of execution, as we continue to focus on growth opportunities that exist throughout our network of apiary operations in Marlborough, Nelson, and the West Coast.
Together with our partners and an amazing team, we are building a great business – always remaining authentic to our origins, just like our honey. Co-Founders Renee and Dale.
