The Silky Oak Chocolate Company

Silky Oak chocolate shops

Silky oak chocolates A Silky Oak (grevillea) tree growing behind the factory is responsible for this chocolate company’s name. Previously known as Kramers Chocolates, which dates back to the 1950’s, Silky Oak purchased the assets, including the recipes and tradition in 2000 and today they continue to produce new flavours and varieties to keep the tradition alive.

The factory is in sunny Hawkes Bay between Napier and Hastings and draws upon all the naturally grown fruits in the area for the chocolates’ flavours and fillings. Factory tours are pretty special with the added bonus of ‘chocolate history’ thrown in. You can check these out on their website.

The can arrange chocolates for that special occasion and corporate gifts; if you can’t find what you’ll looking for talk to them and they’ll customise an order for you. They understand that a special occasion is just that – special.

Luckily for all of us, if we’re not able to visit them in Hawkes Bay, their chocolates can be purchased in their own shops in Tauranga, Lower Hutt and Kilbirnie in Wellington.
