Confectionery has been made at our Oamaru factory site for nearly 70 years and we have a well established, valued relationship with our community. The Kiwi attitude of giving back and getting stuck in is one of the amazing attributes that make our country great, and so our team are proud supporters of volunteer groups and their endeavours within both our local community and across New Zealand.
Inspired by the religious 'Holi' spring festival in India, colour runs are being held all over the world. We take the colours of the rainbow to the masses as main sponsor for events held here in Oamaru and also in Dunedin.
This community driven event kicks off the Steampunk NZ Festival in and around the historic streets of Oamaru. Saved from smoldering away, we were happy to support the dedicated locals who brought the flames back to life.
As it's title indicates this annual Easter event sees 700 people enjoying a fun community family day. As the makers of New Zealand's favourite marshmallow eggs we love helping out with a good ol' game of hide and seek!
Supporting the Jennian Homes/Heart Foundation's "Heart Foundation for Women campaign" we do our bit to spur the runners and walkers on with a tasty boost along the circuit.
Saturday sport is a right of passage in Kiwi households across the county and club days are a great opportunity for players of all levels to enjoy a day of sport. We love being part of the Kurow Rugby Club Day which is at the centre of the Kurow community. From JABs to Senior Citizen Shield games, it's a family day out for everyone.
School groups, sports teams, community groups. They all know the hard work and effort that goes into fundraising events. We like to do our bit to help because it's always a treat when you spot some of your favourite confectionery in your raffle prize!
