Why We Are Different

Fresh Gelato & Sorbet

We make our gelato and sorbet fresh daily using traditional, artisan techniques. Starting with a daily collection of fresh Guernsey milk and cream from a local family farm that we know produces the best quality milk in an environmentally sustainable way.

Made in small batches at our gelato shop, churning rather than whipping the base to produce the perfect rich and creamy texture. We then hand stir only pure and simple ingredients to create delicious flavours and award-winning products. Nothing other than the freshest ingredients are used in our gelati, ones that are sourced regionally wherever possible.

We make over 100 gelato ice cream flavours and the list keeps growing. Our award-winning recipes continue to evolve as we work with local producers, adapt to the changing seasons and respond to the tastes of our customers. We talk continuously to our scoop shops and listen to you our customers to know which are the favourites – and we can keep making them!

Nine of our flavours were awarded Champion, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards at the Dairy Industry Association Awards and the Royal Queensland Awards in 2023 so try them next time you find Maleny Food Co.
