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.
To view our Action Plan for the Australian Packaging Covenant, please click here. 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. For more information on Peters sustainability programs please contact us on info@peters.com.au and we will get back to you on your request.


STICKS

Peters Ice Cream sticks are sourced from a supplier who is certified by the PEFC (The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification). This means the original logs the sticks come from are traceable to sustainability managed forest and 100% complaint with regulations that ensure respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. For more information, please visit http://pefc.org/.

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. In these instances, any palm oil used is CSPO(mixed) as defined by the RSPO, with the majority(99.9%) classified as Mass Balance or Segregated.

Where possible, we are removing palm oil altogether.
