A WORD FROM A PREVIOUS WINNER

PREVIOUS WINNERS

Our team was absolutely buzzing after winning the Exporter of the year award. As a family owned NZ business from our one site in Porirua we have been steadily increasing our Exports and accelerated this growth in recent years. The team has performed incredibly well despite the recent challenges. We have a vision, “The world loving world-class chocolate from Porirua” so it was fantastic and very humbling for the team to be acknowledged with such an esteemed Export award. We are delighted there are more Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers around the world with our Export efforts!

JAMES ARDERN Chief Executive Officer, Whittaker’s Chocolate
