Whitakers Chocolates to celebrate milestone in 2019
This year, Whitakers Chocolates will celebrate 130 years in business with a new range of products.
The range will see new flavours of wafers to include spicy ginger, sea salt and caramel and orange to complement their existing range of mint wafers, chocolate truffles, honeycomb bites, solid milk chocolate hearts and a range of chocolate bars in a variety of flavours.
A refreshed packaging design complements the new range, and Whitakers have marked their 130th birthday with a message from managing director, William Whitaker, printed within the wafer box, which consumers reveal once they open the packet.
Marketing manager of Whitakers Chocolates, Gemma Whitaker, said: “Our product range has never been more appealing, so much time and effort has gone into designing our new packaging and colour choices, plus the new flavours are moorish! It’s so exciting to launch everything in 2019, especially to mark our birthday.”
Since 1889, the Whitaker family have been devoted to confectionery, and now with 5th generation chocolatiers, the culture remains strongly in place.
Managing director of Whitakers, William Whitaker, said: “I couldn’t be more proud of what we have achieved over the years, I am surrounded by a great team who strive to be the best within our industry. In 2018 investments were made in new products and machinery and was also supported with the appointment of Ian Webster as sales manager and Gemma Whitaker as marketing manager, so we’ve never felt more positive about the future.”
