Whittaker's Chocolates

 

Whittaker's is the largest chocolate brand in New Zealand. Their chocolates contain no palm oil and additives.

James Henry Whittaker started the business in Christchurch in 1896 and it was later moved to Wellington. Whittaker worked in the British confectionery industry at the age of 14 and moved to Christchurch, New Zealand in 1890. Six years later he started manufacturing chocolate confectionery, selling it directly to customers using a horse and a van. In 1913, he established a partnership with his two sons, Ronald and James, based in Wellington. The business became a limited liability company in 1937, with third-generation Whittakers still the sole shareholders in the company. In 1992 the company formed J.H. Whittaker New Zealand Ltd.
