Yikes! It’s the end of November! Where did this fair year go? We’ve been quite remiss in our communications, so busy have we been on various projects. But here we are, finally!
The first and decidedly most exciting story is that we have new flatmates. Our production facility, located at Unit 4, 3 Wood Street, Tempe (right next to the brand spanking new IKEA – we look onto their loading docks) is now a hubbub of food production. The amazing Pepe Saya handmade cultured butter now calls Wood Street home, along with the delectable Homemade Fine Foods (the makers of scrumptious deserts like chocolate mousse and crumbles) and the divine Booza Ice Cream (a dessert delicacy of the Levantine region, served as petit fours).
Best of all, we’re now open for wholesale purchases. There’s an amazing array of our ice cream sandwiches, ice cream tubs, desserts, butter and other delicacies, all available for tastings and purchase at wholesale prices. Much preferable to those Swedish meatballs! So if you’re in the Tempe area, we’d love to see you.
With Christmas just around the corner comes the release of our Christmas Cookie – delicious cassata ice cream with a gingerbread cookie. We started dispatching the CC to our retailers a week ago. You can either find your nearest stockist using our Facebook store locater, see us down at the Eveleigh markets (we’ll be there every Saturday during December) or even better, drop into Tempe to get your stash. As always, they are available for a limited time so get in quick.
We’ve slowly been increasing our network of stockists around Sydney and Melbourne, but the big news is that we finally have a retailer up in Brisbane. The incredible Sourced Grocer, located at 11 Florence Street Teneriffe, has a freezer of ours and from all accounts the reaction from Brisbanites has been fantastic. About time we got up there! If you have any friends or family in Brisbane, we’d greatly appreciate if you could let them know.
And last but not least, if you ever wondered how our ice cream sandwiches are made, all, well, almost all, is revealed in a video that was produced by Rob Locke from Food Wine Dine. We love Rob – not only did he introduce us to Pepe Saya and the team, he’s probably the nicest guy around. His video is on the homepage of our website.
We hope that the end of the year is a good one for you. We’ll try to squeeze in one more update before Christmas – meanwhile, hope to see you down in Tempe or around the traps!
