We’re a family business that’s been making products for people, and the pets that people love, for more than 100 years. Mars is behind some of the world’s best loved brands in the world including M&M'S®, MASTERFOODS® EXTRA® and WHISKAS®!

Globally, we’re 100,000 self-proclaimed Martians - we’re pet obsessed, confectionery lovers, foodies, dream chasers and community builders - working across 80 different countries. Mars New Zealand is a Multisales site, meaning we sell from all three segments; Petcare, Mars Wrigley Confectionery and Food.


The Five Principles - Quality, Efficiency, Responsibility, Mutuality and Freedom - are at the heart of everything we do. These principles inform our decisions and unite us across geographies, languages, cultures and generations.

Our Culture

Our number one asset is our people! Mars Associates enjoy a range of unique benefits every day, including open-plan offices, pets at work, table tennis and of course, chocolate! We’re proud to make products to benefit the whole family – from delicious treats, to wholesome meals, to pet food that keeps our beloved furry companions healthy and happy. As Mars Associates will tell you, it feels good to be a part of brands that consumers love and value.

Equally important and rewarding is being a part of a team that strives to bring The Five Principles to life in the work we do. They are not just words on our office walls! They are a call to action for each of us to do our best every day.

Everywhere we do business, we’re committed to creating an excellent culture. For the last 11 years, we have been recognised by the IBM Best Workplace Awards for providing a great working environment for our Associates. 

With our Associates guided by the principles, along with our open work environment, our collaborative working style, and the freedom we have to shape our own future, we believe it makes Mars a truly unique culture.
