About us

Peter Boutelje (BSc. Industrial Engineering) - beekeeper and engineer. Peter started beekeeping in 1970, and became well known for his brand "Black Forest Honey" In 1980 he designed and manufactured the "Boutelje Extraflow" honey extractors and an extremely accurate filling machine - still used today. He continued building his range of machinery after emigrating to New Zealand in 1991. In 2005 he founded Boutelje Products Limited

Boutelje Products is based in West Auckland. Our company produces an extensive range of machinery for honey houses in New Zealand, and around the world. We are extremely proud of our machines and our commitment to the beekeeping industry.

Beekeepers are welcome to come and see us at our factory to discuss their honey processing needs.


"The autumn after building my bee shed, I began talking to Peter Boutelje about my options for a cost effective, yet efficient plant for a smaller beekeeping operation. The knowledge and experience Peter and his staff have of engineering honey equipment is invaluable, and his willingness to find a good solution for my business was greatly appreciated. After my first thirty tons extracted through Boutelje's Small Extraction System, I can say with great conviction that it is reliable, simple to use, maintain and clean, and is built to last. The jewel in the crown of the system is the filter centrifuge. For a system only running a centrifuge to clean the honey, it comes out at an excellent standard for bulk honey. It is also very quick and easy to start, stop and clean. After the maiden run, I was operating without a hitch. Simple as that. Alex Reekers Heritage Valley Honey Limited"
