Our award winning chocolate producers are the best at their game and take their craft quite seriously . You can be assured of the best in quality and taste.
Wellington Chocolate Factory makes organic, ethically traded, bean to bar chocolate of the highest quality. Their chocolate story starts with meeting the farmers and bringing the best single-origin beans into their factory from across the globe. Then they roast, crack, winnow, conch and temper – using artisan methods reaching back to the 18th century – producing batches of strong, luscious organic chocolate. Legendary New Zealand artists add their own dash of inspiration, infusing their wrappers with original designs. Every bar has a story to tell. Customers love their chocolate for its unique flavours, Kiwi connection, and their commitment to fair trade principles.

Honest Chocolat was born at the beginning of 2016 in a converted garage in Snells Beach, through the collaboration of husband and wife team Nico and Emily Bonnaud. Not being those to take the easy route, the business began as a side project to full time occupations as Pastry Chef and Interior Designer with weekend markets and online sales, and a commitment to using unique and high quality single origin chocolate.
Bennetts is family owned and run, brought into the world by trained chocolatiers Clayton and Mary Bennett in 1998. Just as it always was, Bennetts is made in Mangawhai Village, New Zealand; close to where Clayton spent his childhood and where the company has become an intrinsic part of the local community.
