Makana Confections

504 Kerikeri Rd, Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, New Zealand - View on map

Makana Confections manufactures and retails gift-quality chocolates at its boutique chocolate factories in Kerikeri and Blenheim. Makana has become a "must see" visitor attraction in the Bay of Islands and along the Marlborough Wine Trail, where visitors can observe chocolates being hand-made, enjoy samples and shop - similar to a winery visit experience. The first Makana boutique chocolate factory was opened in Kerikeri December 1998 and the second Makana store was opened in Rapaura Road, Blenheim, along the Marlborough Wine Trail in February 2005. The Makana products are unique because: At Makana we never use preservatives, artificial flavouring or colourings. We source the very best chocolate couverture from the USA. Our confections are genuinely hand-made. We don't even use moulds apart from our half-shell for Easter Eggs. All the confections that are sold in the Matakana stores are made on the premises. Packaging quality is given special emphasis. We realise that quality confections are very often purchased as gifts, so we work very hard to ensure our presentation meets the requirement of being special. Check out our new secure website where you can order chocolates online all the time
