About Us

Way back in 1822 the Huntley & Palmers dynasty began when Thomas Huntley and George Palmer began crafting the finest crackers in their hometown of Reading, England. Fast forward a few years (OK, more than a few) and Griffin’s began producing Huntley & Palmers in NZ in 1985. The location was new but the passion for producing innovative, delicious, quality crackers remained and Huntley & Palmers have now been a Kiwi staple for more than 30 years. 

Today, almost all Huntley & Palmers crackers continue to be lovingly baked right here in NZ by our expert team using some of the best ingredients. We have a cracker to suit every taste and occasion, and damn we think they’re delicious!



These days the humble cracker is anything but, and we are the lucky team who get to call ‘hanging out in the kitchen creating new products’ our job.

We’ve been in the cracker business a while now so it’s fair to say our cracker game is strong; we think we know better than anyone how to make every occasion a little tastier!
