1980 saw the birth of Kulfi Ice Cream Manufacturers (Pty) Ltd. It was the culmination of a vision of two enterprising partners. Their dream was to offer top quality, oriental-type ice cream at a price affordable to the man-in-the-street. What started off from humble beginnings (a single-man operation) has now developed into a giant enterprise.
Over a hundred people made up from the South African rainbow nation is employed. Not to mention the thousands of self-employed from the informal sector who eke out a living selling our ice-cream products.
The first ice-creams were produced in the back room of an ice-cream parlour situated in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, South Africa. In a short while, the premises proved too small. The next move was into the industrial heartland of Lenasia. Presently the factory is housed under 3000 sq. metres of factory and office space.
We are manufacturers and national distributors of:
- High Quality Ice Cream
- Ice Cream Cakes
- Stick-lines (water and milk based)
- Milk lollies
- Ice cream cakes
- Frozen Desserts
We distribute to supermarkets, chain stores, ice cream parlours, retailers, cafes, schools, institutions and restaurants.
We are constantly striving to improve the quality of our ice-cream. Our products are produced on the latest state-of-the-art equipment. This is then delivered across the length and breadth of South Africa and the neighbouring states. Our specially equipped fleet of refrigerated trucks services this region. Kwa-zulu, Natal is well served by 3 fully owned depots and supported by our warehouse facility situated at Springfield Park, Durban.
We are well equipped and geared to satisfy the needs and demands of our ever-changing consumer market.
We were crowned the 1999 Rand Show Ice Cream Champions and awarded the Gold Medal. We were also awarded the prestigious and coveted The Bush Boake Allen Floating Trophy in the same year.
All our products are produced in a factory environment that uses nuts and are egg-free, gelatine-free and conforms to Halaal standards approved by SANHA.
(Except our Swiss-Roll & Tiramisu which contain egg.)
As the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating or should we say, the proof of the ice-cream is in the taste. Need we say more ?
