Palm Oil Ice Cream SA Zoo Choice

SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GOLDEN NORTH FROZEN OUT BY ZOOS SA DECISION TO CHOOSE ICE CREAM CONTAINING PALM OIL

Privately owned and operated South Australian ice cream maker Golden North remains committed to producing high quality, locally produced and palm oil free ice cream despite its products being axed by Zoos SA.

After completely eliminating palm oil from its ice cream, and jointly promoting the move with Adelaide and Monarto Zoo, Golden North had its contract broken by Zoos SA, which has entered into a deal with Unilever owned Streets – whose ice creams contain palm oil.

Golden North Marketing Manager Trevor Pomery said it was disappointing Zoos SA had decided against partnering with a company that produced high quality, South Australian and palm oil free products.

“We thought Zoos SA’s commitment to palm oil free products was as strong as Golden North’s but this has proved not to be the case,” said Mr Pomery.

“We still had just over a year to go on our contract but received a letter dated July 3 advising we were no longer preferred supplier with immediate effect.

“Since the news broke, we’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the community, both from within South Australia and interstate.

“It is very comforting to see the level of support people have for the protection of endangered species by ceasing destruction of rainforests for palm oil production.”

Golden North Ice Cream is proudly South Australian-made and owned and has been producing ice cream in Laura, South Australia for the past 90 years.

Golden North uses only the freshest milk and cream from local dairy farmers to create its award winning rich and creamy ice cream.

Every Golden North product is Palm Oil Free and ethically produced.
