The Cookie Project is a certified social enterprise employing Kiwis with disabilities to bake award-winning cookies, and paying a decent wage of at least $18.90 an hour. Founded in 2018, its purpose is to help Kiwis with disabilities understand their own value to themselves and to society. The Cookie Project uses the finest Kiwi ingredients with no perservatives, additives or colouring to hand-make premium cookies that change lives. Based in Eden Park in Auckland, The Cookie Project hosts a range of experiences for children of all ages and adults to enjoy.
