A Whittaker’s three-peat as NZ’s Most Trusted Brand

A Whittaker’s three-peat as NZ’s Most Trusted Brand

Whittaker’s Chocolates is very proud to have been voted New Zealand’s Most Trusted Brand for the third consecutive year in the annual Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brands list announced today.

For the second year in a row Whittaker’s has also made a clean sweep of eligible categories, also winning the New Zealand Icon and Confectionary awards.

Whittaker’s Marketing Manager Holly Whittaker said it had been a fantastic few years for the company, which has won numerous other awards over the same time period.

“Whittaker’s is particularly proud of this honour because it’s decided by the New Zealand public. Established in 1896, we remain a family-owned company that is proud to have become an iconic New Zealand brand and we’d like to thank the public for their continued support.”

“Over the last few years we’ve launched a number of new products, invested in the latest chocolate-making technology in our Swiss-made 5 Roll Refiner and expanded internationally. But we’ll always be a New Zealand company that stays true to its roots.

“We think a major reason we’ve been voted Most Trusted Brand for three years in a row is that Kiwis appreciate our commitment to quality. It’s a core company value that we will never compromise on,” said Ms Whittaker.

Whittaker’s is the only major chocolate manufacturer in New Zealand that ensures quality by controlling the whole manufacturing process – from bean to bar – from its one factory in Porirua, Wellington.

With 100% of its operations in New Zealand, Whittaker’s is proud to be an exporter of quality New Zealand produce, as well as one of the largest employers in the Wellington region.
