South Australian owned and made ice cream company Golden North has been rated “number one” Best-Rated Ice Cream Tubs by Canstar Blue for 2022 for the fifth consecutive year.
The award acknowledges Golden North for having the “most satisfied customers” for its ice cream tubs for yet another year, a title the company has held since 2018.
Golden North has been making ice cream from fresh milk and cream in the regional town of Laura, South Australia since 1923, in the same modest factory.
Originally owned by the Bowker family, Golden North is still proudly locally owned and “leads the ice cream market in South Australia.”
Golden North is renowned for its popular Giant Twins and Simply Indulge tub range.
“For a relatively small and local producer, it really is fantastic to see us beat out larger brands on a national scale. To do it five years in a row now is just incredible, and a great tribute to our rich South Australian heritage,” says Director of Marketing and Export Sales Trevor Pomery.
“These awards stand as an endorsement to our commitment to continue to produce top quality local product for the people of Australia.”
Canstar Blue’s Home and Lifestyle Expert Megan Birot believes Golden North has done a stellar job at keeping up the winning streak. “Golden North has rated best ice cream tubs for the fifth consecutive year which is an outstanding achievement for a regional brand hailing from South Australia. Consumers have given this iconic Aussie brand five-star reviews for taste, consistency and overall satisfaction.”
“The market for frozen desserts is very competitive and the fact that Golden North has outperformed a whopping 12 other big-name brands and conglomerates on these important drivers of satisfaction is a sweet victory,” she said.
Golden North ice cream is “nut free, gluten free and palm oil free,” and the company has recently launched a dairy free range.
Golden North products are available in the freezer section of all South Australian supermarkets, and independent supermarkets throughout Australia.
