Whittaker’s Chocolate – World-Class Chocolate Made in New Zealand

We all know New Zealand is famous for its dairy, and hence they produce the best chocolate there too. We were glad to be invited to a blogger event to try out Whittaker’s chocolate, the World-class chocolate made in New Zealand at Jaya Grocer, The Starling Mall last Saturday morning.
As New Zealand's Most Trusted Brand and a favourite among chocolate lovers, Whittaker’s chocolate has expanded into the Asian market, with its chocolate now widely available in China, North Asia, and South-East Asia.

We were glad to meet Matt Whittaker, the Head of International Markets for Whittaker’s chocolate during the event. According to him, 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,” says Matt Whittaker.
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.
We got to know more about Whittaker’s chocolate and even had a chance to try them out during the Whittaker’s chocolate bloggers' event. Chef Faizah has also did a live cooking demo before we proceeded to decorate our very own chocolate cupcake!
In fact, Whittaker’s core range is Halal Certified and features a variety of flavours available in 200g Blocks, 50g Slabs, 50g Chunks and Mini Slabs. From the top-selling Almond Gold, 5-Roll Refined Creamy Milk Block, 72% Cocoa Dark Ghana, Dark Almond to Dark Peppermint, everyone could be ensure to find their favourite flavor amongst the wide variety of selections.
Not only that, Whittaker’s has a premium chocolate range too, namely the Artisan Collection. Whittaker’s Artisan range is in 100g sizes and feature unique flavour combinations which have been created using the finest ingredients from New Zealand.
We love how smooth and tasty Whittaker’s chocolate are. Now, we can't stop indulging in this good quality chocolate which made us feel a bit of luxury amid the daily grind.

Whittaker’s is widely distributed in West Malaysia in both domestic and duty free channels with year on year growth. You can purchase it at a grocery near you.
Last but not least, I wish to share the best news of the day with you. Whittaker’s will be partnering with Ben’s Independent Grocer located at Ikano Power Centre to give away complimentary mini Whittaker’s chocolate slab with every coffee purchased. Promotion runs from 12th – 15th October, and is on a first come first serve basis.
