Whittaker’s produce the world's finest chocolate made in New Zealand. Family owned and operated since 1896.
Established in New Zealand over 120 years ago, our founder J. H. Whittaker knew that you can’t make the best chocolate unless you make everything from scratch. So, we seek only the very finest ingredients from around the world and New Zealand. We oversee the whole process from beans to bar. Most of our cocoa beans come from Ghana, but we also source uniquely flavoured, high quality beans from other locations. The beans are shipped directly to our factory in Porirua where the batch-roasting begins. This gives us full control over the quality of our chocolate. At Whittaker’s, we are proud to have been voted Colmar Brunton’s "New Zealand’s Most Loved Brand” and Reader's Digest’s “New Zealand’s Most Trusted Brand” for the last 7 years.
Our entire Whittaker’s range is available at our Auckland Airport store, from our iconic Peanut Slab to our new Assortments and Gift Boxes that make gifting easier and more delicious than ever.
The store is entirely dedicated to our Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers, dressed in gold and encapsulating our timeless, sophisticated style. It is the perfect convenience for any traveller who is in need of an authentic Kiwi gift.
