Panikeke is the Pacific Term for ‘Pancake’.
For our founder, this iconic island treat has played a pivotal role in their upbringing. From frying up Panikeke's in the kitchen before the age of five, to being the number one go to dish when there's nothing in the cupboards.
The story of the humble Panikeke has always held a deep connection with our founder and inspires many memories of the humble beginnings, growing up in South Auckland.
We believe these humble beginnings have helped create Panikeke, in shaping it to become a brand inspired and created for the Pacific.
KITELI - Founder 2016
A B O U T
Founded in a small room in the suburbs of South Auckland, by a Young Pacific Entrepreneur.
Panikeke was created in early 2016, out of the pure frustration of not being able to find pacific made products or any products at all that were made using locally sourced ingredients from the Pacific.
To fill this void, our founder mistakingly created Panikeke (originally named Pancake) as a space to sell all their failed pacific made products and fast forward a few years later with many Panikeke goodies being sent across the world - Panikeke was born!
