About Melnovus

Bringing you Luxury…

Our Passion for Raw Honey, Sustainablity, and luxury…

Our passion for raw honey, sustainability, and luxury was started by Marko van der Merwe and Jeandre Sylvester. They we realized that raw, unadulterated honey is hard to get by. We did some research and realized we can give people the quality they desire. We got together investors who are passionate about raw honey. Those who want to get this healthy treat to the right people. Melnovus (previously The Raw Honey Company) was born. We continue to supply only the best quality honey to South Africans at affordable prices.
During this time, we quickly realized another niche market – Kombucha! Kombucha is a fermented drink with lots of health benefits, and so we developed a delicious recipe and now supply fresh, tasty (and healthy) kombucha to South Africans at reasonable prices! And this is where sustainability comes in – for the sake of the environment we now have a recycling system, one that benefits the supplier (us), the consumer (you), and the world!
Melnovus is a Proudly South African distributor of quality raw honey. We source the best local honey, in a variety of interesting and unique flavours. We also produce various delicious home made jams, and a tasty Kombucha, all available on our online store for order!


We continuously upload blogs with new and exciting information.

Why Choose Melnovus

We strive for quality, excellence and luxury, because we recognize that high quality, raw, unadulterated honey is difficult to come by, especially in the mass market.

It is also because we want to provide healthy alternatives to the high sugar lifestyle that so many South Africans have. Honey is a healthy substitute for sugar, and even syrup in some instances!
