History

KitKat - a revolution in confectionary.

In 1935, the first four-fingered wafer was launched as Rowntree’s Chocolate Crisp. Within 18 months however, it was rebranded by Rowntree’s marketing director George Harris, as KitKat Chocolate Crisp. Here, an iconic brand was born.

The marked the start of a revolution in confectionary. The snap of the chocolate coated wafer fingers became a household ritual in its home market of the UK, and then quickly all over the world as the brand was successfully launched in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada. In 1988, the acquisition of Rowntree meant that Kit Kat came under the Nestlé umbrella, catalysing an expansion of the brand into Central & Eastern Europe, emerging Asian markets and Latin America.
