Peters is Australia’s favourite ice cream brand and a true Australian icon. Long associated with hot summers, trips to the beach and BBQ’s with friends and family, our mantra of DIVE IN embodies this fun, carefree spirit. It is this unbridled passion that spills over into our products, our communication and our people. We have an insatiable curiosity and a determination to constantly deliver Australia the highest quality, and most innovative iced treats on the market.

DRUMSTICK, ORIGINAL, FROSTY FRUIT, CONNOISSEUR, these brands conjure up many fond memories for Australians. We keep these ice cream lovers at the heart of everything we do, every product we create. We understand what Australian’s want and we design our products especially for them.

It is by doing all of this that we keep the original vision of Fred Peters alive, and will continue to for many centuries to come. For more information on Peters Ice Cream history, feel free to explore the timeline below.
