Whittaker’s supports Brendon Hartley

Whittaker’s supports Brendon Hartley

Whittaker’s is pleased to have become one of the sponsors of Brendon Hartley, a New Zealand racing driver competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Whittaker’s Marketing Manager, Holly Whittaker, said “We’re proud to make a contribution to Brendon – he’s a Kiwi competing in a demanding sport overseas and we hope that our support will help him get home more often to see his friends and family.”

“There’s a synergy because Whittaker’s competes with big international brands and exports New Zealand chocolate to a number of countries around the world – and New Zealand exports many talented drivers to compete in international circuits. You might say New Zealand punches above its weight in both chocolate and racing, among other things of course.

“We wish Brendon the best of luck for his upcoming season, and we’ll make sure he has a good supply of his favourite Whittaker’s chocolate to help see him through,” said Ms Whittaker.

Established in New Zealand over 100 years ago, Whittaker’s is a family-owned company that is proud to have become an iconic New Zealand brand.
