Wellington Chocolate Factory Moore Wilson Dark Chocolate & Orange Bar
Moore Wilson's are known for their iconic squeezed in front of you orange juice, which has cured many a hangover in the capital! We teamed up with Moores to make something just as deliciously tangy with the rind, a byproduct from their juicing process.
Firstly we start by walking over to our favourite neighbours Moore Wilsons to pick up the rinds, and try not to get side tracked ourselves by all their deliciousness!
We bring them back to the factory where we boil them to ensure that they are sterilized and soft, ready for the drying process.
Now they are ready to go into a large oven, where we dry them low and slow for a very long time to ensure the flavours concentrate, and they can be ground down into a powder. We want this chocolate to be smooth, with an integrated zesty flavour.
For this particular batch we only add Fair Trade Organic nibs from the Dominican Republic and Fair Trade Organic Turbinado Sugar from Paraguay Manduvira Co-operative and grind it with our authentic stone grinders for 3 days. This process releases the natural flavours in the Cacao, and really lets the bean’s unique taste come through.
Once the chocolate is as smooth as liquid in the grinders we put it through our tempering machines, and then wrap in our bespoke designed packaging.

We don’t just make NZ’s highest quality, organic, ethically sourced and traded, award-winning, bean to bar chocolate (as if that isn’t enough). We dream of creating a better tasting world, for our suppliers and customers alike.
Shipping & Delivery
In order to make things simple and convenient, we have set our delivery pricing with our couriers based on a standard delivery box, with dimensions of 330mm L x 250mm W x 310mm H, and a maximum weight of 18kg.
To get an idea of how much that is, the delivery box fits up to 12 bottles of wine, one kitchen mixer, or a feather and down duvet inner. Your total delivery charge is automatically calculated in the checkout – simply enter your delivery region and let our system do the rest.
Your order is then sent out by our couriers and delivered right to your door. When orders contain alcohol, someone over the age of 18 must be present to sign for it – if you can’t be home at the time, we recommend that the order is sent to a workplace.
If no one aged 18 or over is present when delivery is attempted, a contact card will be left by the courier, and redelivery can be arranged with them.
While we are at Alert Level 2 & 4 please allow extra time for your delivery. Courier Post have implemented a contactless service and social distancing in thier warehouses and have restircted the number of parcels they are taking in to thier network meaning deliveries could take upto 5 working days. We apologise for an inconvienience.
Once payment is received, your orders will usually be with you in 5 working days for North Island addresses, and 6 working days for South Island addresses. You can track your order once it has been collected by Courier Post – an email with the tracking reference will be sent to you automatically. Please note that Courier Post do not collect from us on Saturday or Sunday, any orders placed during the weekend will be dispatched the following Monday.
Please note: We cannot accommodate requests for a specific delivery time; actual delivery times will be dependent on the courier's schedule.
While we do everything we can to get your order to you as quickly as possible, there may be occasions where orders may take longer to arrive – you can follow your order’s progress using the courier tracking reference.

Q: I’ve seen a product in store but can’t find it on your website. How can I order it?
If there's something you are after that isn't yet available here on our website, contact us and we'll see what we can do. If it’s something we have in stock and can send by courier, we will do our very best to make it available on our website.
Q: Why is there a minimum order quantity for some products?
Some of our products – such as beer and grocery items – can be bought individually in store, but we can only courier them in set quantities (such as boxes, cases or cartons). It is often quite a lot cheaper to buy in these quantities, which is why we show both the individual and bulk prices on the product pages. It’s always nice to know what you’re saving!
