About Boosta


How it all started..

While training hard for the sports I loved, the unnatural, highly processed products on the market didn't fuel or sustain my body, plus they didn't taste good! One summer working for Dad, a beekeeper, I saw the answer right in front of me.

So I, Hayden Pohio, started Boosta. Using Dad's pure Manuka Honey from the hives around the Waikato, I created all-natural, great tasting sports nutrition, that delivers maximum sustained energy. 

We're holdin' on to what's golden

From Dad’s hives around the North Island to Mum’s handmade stalls at the local farmers market, it’s all about living sweet, real sweet. Honey is the Pohio family’s thing.

We've got bees collecting in the King Country, Coromandel, Waikato and places way off the beaten track. Back at home we turn this hard work into heaps of good stuff.

From our morning toast to the afternoon cuppa, we’re working on making life sweeter. Bees and honey are worth their weight in gold. Manuka binds all our products together. Literally. The proof is in the pudding. 

But it's not pudding, it's honey. From hive to home, source to shelf, and bee to basket.

Our vision

Food should be enjoyable at any time, also when on a bike ride, a run, or at the gym. That's why we only use natural ingredients and superfoods, such as cashew nuts, fruits and real Manuka Honey in our products that will reward and sustain your energy.

Boosta Honey's unique combination of naturally occurring glucose and fructose gives it the health and energy properties that can't be found in any other ingredients. 

Our range of Boost products was created to give you energy at those times when you most need it. It offers sustained energy instead of a quick boost that will make you crash later. Our mission is to provide high quality honey products, accessible for everyday life. No added flavours, colours or preservatives here, Boosta just doesn't need them. Easy to fit into your pocket, this premium Manuka Honey and all natural Boosta range tastes great and give you lasting energy!
