Bennetts is family owned and run, brought into the world by trained chocolatiers Clayton and Mary Bennett in 1998. Just as it always was, Bennetts is made in Mangawhai Village, New Zealand; close to where Clayton spent his childhood and where the company has become an intrinsic part of the local community. Today the home of Bennetts centers around a flagship store which is both luxurious and welcoming.
Bennetts use fresh, local ingredients to create their award-winning product. Their French - inspired style of making chocolates involves a true labour of love; first make a slab of ganache, this is then cut into small pieces which is then "enrobed" with a thin layer of chocolate and finally decorated by hand.
