The Cookie Time Story

Cookie Time is a family owned, Christchurch based business, founded in 1983 by 21-year-old Christchurch entrepreneur Michael Mayell. On the first day of business, 7 February 1983, some 70 jars of Original Chocolate Chunk Cookies were delivered to 70 Christchurch stores. Later in 1983, 19-year-old brother Guy Pope-Mayell joined the business and Cookie Time remains owned by the brothers.

In the early days, Cookie Time cookies were produced with classic Kiwi ingenuity. Chocolate was cut up on a repurposed bacon slicer, cookie dough was measured out with ice cream scoops, and paint scrapers were used to get the baked cookies off the trays. A team of egg crackers was employed to crack thousands of fresh eggs a day for cookie making. Technology may have changed but Cookie Time remains committed to producing delicious, quality product with real ingredients, such as butter, eggs and real chocolate (no compound nasties), like you would have in your pantry at home.
