Much loved Kiwi confectionery company Whittaker's has announced that it's prices will be seeing a small increase.
The price increases come due to their use of ethically sourced ingredients and sustainable packaging as Whittaker's head toward their goal of being 100% sustainable by 2025.
In a press release Whittaker's said, "much has changed in the last two years, for everyone. For us, like most businesses, this has also brought with it ever escalating costs across the board."
This is certainly true for our freight and ingredients costs. But we refuse to compromise on quality.
"There are also the increasing costs in guaranteeing our ingredients are ethically sourced (which we demand) and in better packaging solutions so ours' can be entirely sustainable by our 2025 target date."
"All these things are vital to us, and we could never settle for second best."
"So while for the last two years we have been able to keep our price unchanged, all of these pressures have taken their toll and we now need to have a small price increase."
"For our part we continue to commit to making world class chocolate in Porirua for all our Chocolate Lovers."
