Project awarded by Teknovel, New Zealand


Aptagrim has been awarded a contract to build a new cloud-based machine learning application for TEKNOVEL Expert Solutions Ltd, New Zealand.

TEKNOVEL is a life science company headquartered at Te Awamutu, New Zealand.



Manuka Honey

This rare and special New Zealand honey is made from the nectar of the native Manuka plant, which the bees collect and transform into Manuka honey, highly valued for its rare and complex properties. It is the nectar of the New Zealand Manuka flower that contributes the unique natural ingredients to Manuka honey that make it so different to other honeys.

Manuka honey is rare – it is only made in New Zealand and can only be made for a few weeks a year when the Manuka plant is in flower. The amount of honey produced can vary greatly depending on weather conditions and how much nectar is produced.

Scope of the Project

The project is planned to be executed in three phases. In the first phase which is expected to be executed in 4 weeks’ time, APTAGRIM team would develop custom ML model enabling business to forecast the production of Manuka honey using client’s historical datasets on cultivated land, manuka flora and MGO concentration (stands for methylglyoxal, the naturally occurring compound that makes Manuka honey so special).

New milestone for Aptagrim

Wining this project helps us to spread our foot prints into the New Zealand market. We believe this is just a beginning and we anticipate many more data science projects through our collaboration with Teknovel.
