Perry's manufactures their own brand of ice cream for retail grocery, convenience stores, schools and institutions. Our products are packaged in retail containers such as pints, quarts, "sqrounds", and as ice cream novelties such as cones, bars and sandwiches. In addition to our own brand, we manufacture similar formats on a contract basis for other companies servicing similar channels of trade.
Perry's began offering organic ice cream in 2008, under its own label, supplied solely by long time milk supplier partner, Upstate Farms, a cooperative. Perry's organic ice creams are carefully crafted, one batch at a time to give consumers all the creaminess and taste you would expect from Perry's with all natural, USDA approved organic ingredients.
Perry's brand is delivered in a portion of the US representing less than 2% of the total US Market. The ice cream category is projected to grow at about 1.7% annually through 2010. Growth in the global marketplace is expected to exceed 3%. Perry's is annually the market share leader in Western New York in ice cream and sherbet sales. With our tradition of quality, consumers expect Perry's to deliver a superior tasting, creamier product than our competitors offers. Based on our sales leadership, we deliver against those high expectations.
