Honey Power

Professor Peter Molan of Waikato University’s Honey Research Unit was the subject of a BBC feature on the healing power of honey. Molan hopes to take his area of expertise to the world via revolutionary wound dressings, made using NZ manuka honey. “It’s like a sheet of rubber, you can touch it without it being sticky at all,” says Molan of his invention. NZ natural health company, Comvita, has taken on the marketing of Molan’s products. “The global market for wound care is in the range of two to six billion US dollars,” says Comvita’s Ray Lewis. “So if we can capture just a small percentage of that, we will obviously be doing very well.”
