If you ask our staff what the best part of working at Hawkins Watts is - the answer will most likely be ‘the people’. We are very lucky to have talented and passionate people on staff, which creates a fun work environment.
The idea for Hawkins Watts was born in 1992 when a multinational food ingredients company decided to exit the New Zealand market. Peter Hawkins, a sales manager at the time, saw the opportunity to provide local manufacturers with their own trusted specialty ingredients supplier.
