About Us


Makana® Confections is a boutique chocolatier specialising in gift-quality confections. We craft all of our products by hand, using only the highest quality, freshest, natural ingredients available to us.

You are welcome to visit our two boutique chocolate factories in New Zealand — one in the beautiful Bay of Islands area of the North Island, and the other in the heart of the Marlborough Wine Trail at the top of the South Island. Each facility is set up like a winery cellar door where you can watch how we make our chocolates, taste a few samples and, of course, shop for delicious chocolates.

What Makes Makana® Special?


You won't find Makana® products offered for sale anywhere other than at our own boutique factory stores, or on this website. This is because we use ingredients such as fresh cream, creamery butter and freshly-roasted nuts in many of our products, without preservatives. Although this means our products have comparatively shorter shelf lives, we achieve flavours and textures in our products that are far superior to chocolates made for wider retail distribution. As with most food, fresh is better, and this is certainly true of our chocolates. At Makana®, we retain complete control over the freshness of our products, from manufacture all the way to the purchase of our products by our customers.


The word quality is bandied about by any number of businesses. However, at Makana®, quality is our raison d'etre — it defines the very essence of our company. We seek perfection. We realise that perfection is an unattainable goal, of course. However, this goal gives us the pride and motivation to strive for excellence in all that we do — our products, our presentation, our customer service, and our integrity.

To achieve our high level of quality, we start with the best possible ingredients, and we never skimp on the premium ingredients. For example, if macadamia nuts are featured, you can be sure that our recipes include generous quantities of macadamia kernels. We make all of our products by hand in small batches. We also hand pack all of our products. This gives us a much greater degree of scrutiny and control over the product quality.


We recognise that many of our customers buy our products as gifts for family, friends and associates. Therefore, our commitment to quality doesn't stop with the products inside our boxes, but extends to the entire presentation of our product.

Our packaging is clean and crisp, and our gift wrapping (complimentary, of course) is designed to make an elegant first impression. Makana® gifts are always appropriate, always appreciated.
