Community

We’re a New Zealand company that wants to do right by our community. So, we believe if you can lend a helping hand, you should.

For us, help can take many forms. From partnerships with nationwide charities like Plunket, to donating chocolate, to providing ways to fundraise for your cause. Just expect a dash of Whittaker’s along the way. Like a nation-wide Easter Egg hunt or Limited Edition flavour collaboration with someone special!

Explore some of the community work we’ve been lucky enough to be a part of.
