As New Zealand fights to claim manuka honey as its own, Tasmania is investigating what makes our own leatherwood honey so special.

Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture PhD student Katharina Schmidt wants to preserve the value of Tassie's unique leatherwood honey by proving its unique characteristics.

By finding the unique properties and compounds specific to leatherwood honey, Miss Schmidt will develop parameters to create a leatherwood honey 'fingerprint' and authentication test.
