Golden North Marketing Director, Trevor Pomery said the entire team were overwhelmed with the news,

We were humbled the first and second year to receive such an amazing accolade, but to be consecutive winners 3 years running has completely blown us away. To be rated in this category amongst some pretty impressive competitors is truly amazing. To us it is recognition that our decision to continue making our ice cream with fresh milk and fresh cream was the correct decision. This award is a huge win not only for us and our 65 factory employees, in SA’s mid-north town of Laura, but for South Australia as a whole. What a win for our state. We’re so grateful.

We receive many requests from interstate customers who have tried our ice cream on holiday to SA and surrounds to bring the ice-cream to their local shelves. – We have certainly expanded our interstate stockists in the past 12 months with big thanks to IGA who have really come on board to support this expansion, and hope to make it available in more locations in the near future
