Hillier’s launches Christmas 2014 range
Australia’s oldest chocolatier, Ernest Hillier Chocolates (Hillier’s) has launched a new product range for Christmas 2014.
The range includes Honey Roasted Macadamia and Mini Christmas Puddings, which Hillier’s said were “perfect for sharing”.
Staying true to its Australian heritage, Hillier’s joined the Australian Made campaign in September 2014, and the Company said it “wholeheartedly supports fellow Australian manufacturers, producers and suppliers”. The Company said all its products were “made in Australia from local and imported ingredients” and that all its packaging was made in Australia.
Australian Food News reported in October 2014 that Re:Capital, which acquired Hillier’s in Feburary 2014 had formed a new holding company, The Confectionery Innovation Group Pty Ltd, made up of Hillier’s and Broadmeadows-based confectionery company Betta Foods.
Founded by Ernest Hillier in Sydney in 1914, Hillier’s remains one of Australia’s most prestigious chocolate makers. The company today still shares Ernest Hillier’s original vision “to offer our patrons only the highest grade confectionery”. Hillier’s chocolates still continue to be made locally in its Melbourne factory, using “only the finest ingredients and the same traditional chocolate making processes”.
The Hillier’s Christmas range is available in Coles, Woolworths and Aldi supermarkets around Australia, as well as David Jones, Myer, Harris Scarfe and speciality retail stores.
