New Zealand-made Whittaker’s chocolate, the country’s Most Trusted Brand and a favourite among chocolate lovers, has expanded into the Asian market, with its chocolate now widely available in China, North Asia, and South-East Asia.
Whittaker’s chocolate is all made at its one factory in Porirua, New Zealand, and is the only major chocolate manufacturer in New Zealand that ensures quality by controlling the whole manufacturing process – from beans to bar.
Each step in the chocolate-making process, from receiving the cocoa bean in its raw form to the final wrapped product, is done at the Whittaker’s factory.
“Our core focus on producing quality, world-class chocolate is why we think we have been voted New Zealand’s
Most Trusted Brand for six years in a row,” – Matt Whittaker.
