Peters Ice Cream specialises in the manufacture, sales and distribution of ice cream and ice confection.

Peters has always been wholly committed to good environmental practice and is a signatory to Australian sustainable packaging guidelines.

All new packaging is designed with a view to minimising the environmental impact. This is achieved using a Packaging Impact Quick Evaluation Tool (PIQET).

Peters Ice Cream is committed to the ongoing review of our existing packaging.

PALM OIL

We have a deep concern about the serious environmental threat to rainforests and peat fields in South East Asia caused by deforestation, and the carry on effect to wildlife.

We do not use palm oil in the production of any of our ice cream mix; however, some of the inclusions (i.e. nuts, syrups or biscuits) that we source from external suppliers do include small amounts of palm oil.

PETERS are committed to a deadline of no later than 2015 for all inclusions that contain palm oil to be 100% CSPO as defined by the RSPO or, where possible, removing palm oil altogether.
