Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to the Whittaker’s Chocolate Indulgence Tour event, a New Zealand-made chocolate, the country’s Most Trusted Brand and a favourite among chocolate lovers. The brand has expanded into the Asian market, with its chocolate now widely available in China, North Asia, and South-East Asia.

Whittaker’s was established over 120 years ago by J.H. Whittaker, and is now directed by third-generation Whittakers, brothers Andrew and Brian. The next generation of Whittakers, brother and sister Matt and Holly, work in the business as Head of International Markets and Marketing Manager respectively.

Do you know that, 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. We’re proud to be an exporter of premium New Zealand produce, and to be expanding our community of Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers around the world,” said Matt Whittaker, the 4th generation of Whittaker’s Chocolate family business.

    From someone who’s not much fan of sweets, I think I’ll love this as I’ve seen in the comments that these chocolates aren’t too sweet -which is a good thing for me! 🙂

    Whittaker’s is one of the best souvenirs that I have received from friends who travelled to New Zealand. If I have my way, I want to eat it every day. In the meantime, want to take advantage of their offer while I can!
