Premium ice-cream and gelato manufacturer Gelista announced today that Foodies Australia has been appointed exclusive distributor in NSW and the ACT making Gelista a truly national brand.
The Foodies Australia appointment follows the highly successful launch of the Gelista 570ml consumer jar in South Australia in November 2015 and strong consumer demand that has followed launching into Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland and now NSW and the ACT.
“We have seen posts on social media asking when Gelista would be available in NSW”, says Peter Cox, Managing Director of Gelista. “We are delighted that we will now be able to address this growing consumer demand through our newest distribution partner, Foodies Australia.”
Foodies Australia was founded in 1992 by Ruth Nicholas as the home for Australia’s leading food brands and has grown to be a strong player in the market on the back of that positioning. The recent appointment of Dave Hillen as the new Foodies Australia Chief Executive Officer heralds a new era of growth for Foodies Australia but the passion will remain with premium food brands like Gelista.
“We are really excited to be working with Gelista”, says Dave Hillen. “They have a great team, a great strategy, a rapidly building brand and an exceptional product. That means they have a real brand synergy with Foodies Australia and we look forward to growing with Gelista in the years to come.”
Gelista uses ingredients with terroir – usually locally sourced with noticeably better characteristics, combined with artisan crafting techniques, a commitment to innovation and a passion for indulging its customers to deliver a taste and texture that’s uniquely Gelista. That central focus on quality has led to the appointment of Foodies Australia as a distributor that will secure ranging in the fine food retailers in Sydney, regional NSW and ACT.
“With distribution soon covering the majority of Australia’s population, Gelista will become a quality national brand of which all Australians can be proud”, says Peter Cox.
Foodies Australia will be working to help make Peter’s vision a reality.
