The Story So Far...

Once upon a time, in 1992, a Swiss couple set up a small chocolate business in Rotorua. That business was moved to Geraldine, then Queenstown in 2007 and re-branded as Chocolate Brown.  Since 2010, Chocolate Brown has been operating in Warkworth, with a busy Cafeteria, Retail Chocolaterie and Factory, employing over 30 staff and producing our handmade award winning chocolates for our many retail, wholesale and corporate clients throughout New Zealand.

The Factory:
The Chocolaterie hand makes its beautiful award-winning chocolates on site every day from the finest gourmet Callebaut couverture & the freshest of New Zealand's real butter & cream along with other ingredients & decorations sourced from passionate growers, manufacturers & suppliers.

The Chocolaterie:
Home to all of the Chocolate Brown products as well as traditional British sweets, Dutch licorice and many varieties of fresh fudge.

The Cafeteria:
With its stylish casual ambience, the Cafeteria  is made intimate with the cosy fire in winter and veranda seating on warmer days. The Cafeteria is open for Brunch & Lunch daily.
