Many years ago on the wild west coast of the South Island, lived a man. He was the mayor, the fire chief, the bookstore owner, and my grandfather, Tiki Iternan. Tiki was also the town chocolate maker, and into his chocolate he poured all his integrity, passion and his love for New Zealand. When Tiki was gone, his recipe passed through many generations. Until, when chance came, it was handed to the most unlikely creature imaginable. Me.
For me, it’s never been just about the chocolate.
It’s about the people, the place, and doing something we love. We handcraft with aroha and Southern grit to create that taste of New Zealandness our customers love. We’re proud to develop Grandad’s recipe into a company that promotes our heritage to the world through chocolate.
Taste what it means to be Kiwi, one bite at a time.
