About us

Bennetts is more than just a chocolate brand; it embodies a cherished family legacy, fostered by visionary chocolatiers Clayton and Mary Bennett since 1998. Their dedication has now passed to the capable hands of their children, Brodie, Emily, and Harry, poised to propel Bennetts into a new era of chocolate excellence.

From its inception, Bennetts has possessed a profound appreciation for the unique flavours cherished by New Zealanders. Whether it's the beloved feijoa and kiwifruit or the exotic tamarillo and quince, Bennetts celebrates the essence of local tastes. More than just ingredients, each confection embodies a tribute to the environments that nurture them, reflecting the breathtaking beauty of New Zealand's landscapes in every delectable bite.
