About Silky Oak - Handmade Chocolates, Fudge & Gourmet Foods For Lovers of Delicious Things

The Silky Oak Chocolate Co Ltd is a 100% New Zealand owned family business, founded in January 2000. Silky Oak Chocolates purchased Kramer’s Chocolates (circa 1959), and have since developed a proud reputation for producing exquisite handmade couverture (real) chocolates, using traditional methods.

More recently at Silky Oak we established our Gourmet Pantry bringing a selection of our own home made products along with those from Hawke's Bay and beyond. The pantry includes a collection of deliciousness, condiments served at our Café to extend your Silky Oak experience at home! Sorbets, Gelatos, relishes, chutneys & vinaigrettes, all made with love on our premises. 

Our website provides a sample of our handcrafted chocolates, along with some of our other chocolately, fudgey & gourmet food experiences.

When visiting our complex in Hawke's Bay you can enjoy our Shop with our delicious selection of handmade Chocolates, Fudges and our Gourmet Food items.  You can also enjoy our café and discover the history and wonders of chocolate in our Museum.
