Our little story of how 3Bee in Nelson, New Zealand and YD Captivate Management Sdn. Bhd. in Malaysia has come to work together to bring genuine premium New Zealand Mānuka Honey to Malaysia.
3Bee is a dynamic, energetic, family-owned company deeply rooted in New Zealand’s pristine wilderness across the top of the South Island. Four long-time friends gathered their many and varied experiences and skill sets to create a business that has quickly grown from beekeeping and honey production for the NZ market to exporting multiple honey product formats around the world.
Since inception (2015) 3Bee has grown to a team of around 42 million enthusiastic bees and 9 passionate, hardworking beekeepers and office staff that love what they do and do it very well. 3Bee believes in beehives bursting with health producing perfect honey, crafting effective, natural skincare and establishing positive long-term relationships with customers, staff and business partners.
About 3Bee Malaysia
(YD Captivate Management Sdn. Bhd.)
We are a husband-wife team whose love for the beautiful land of New Zealand started more than 25 years ago.
Yoko was an exchange student from Japan in Golden Bay where most of 3Bee's Mānuka Honey is harvested. She quickly fell in love with Golden Bay's pristine forests and unspoiled coastlines, and the friendly people who opened their hearts.
Yoko met Derek, from Malaysia, while they were both studying at a university in Christchurch, New Zealand.
After years in corporate life, Derek decided to start his own business in 2013.
Yoko joined him to start importing Mānuka Honey after reconnecting with her friend from Golden Bay who is a member of 3Bee family.
