Kapiti in boxes

Kapiti, the premium ice cream from New Zealand.

The brand’s innovative and designer flavours are regularly heralded at the New Zealand Ice Cream Awards. And it’s no wonder as only the finest and freshest ingredients sourced originally from New Zealand are used. The plump, sun drenched boysenberries that make the coulis are from the heart of Nelson, the robust sweetness of Black Doris Plums from Central Otago and the Fig and Honey is infused with Manuka honey from Cambridge.  All crafted and paired perfectly with the finest dairy from New Zealand.
