Maleny Food Co. is an artisan food producer located in the beautiful surrounds of Maleny, in the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland.

Our signature gelato and sorbet has achieved critical acclaim and consistently wins Australian industry awards.  Combining rich Guernsey milk and cream, local fruits and produce with the finest Italian ingredients.

We are known for our fromagerie stocked with hundreds of gourmet cheeses and the delicious range of food that we serve in our deli style store.

The Maleny Food Co. story began in 2001 when it was first founded as Colin James Fine Foods, opening on Maple St, Maleny. Starting out as a café and fromagerie, our gelato and sorbet was made daily on site in traditional artisan style. As word spread and the awards began to accumulate, our name became synonymous with ‘truly amazing’ gelato.

Since those early days we have continued to expand our operations, using artisan techniques in our purpose-built manufacturing facility in Maleny, Queensland, and our products can now be found in a growing number of restaurants, gelato shops, boutique grocers and cafes.

We now welcome a new chapter in our story, and while our name has changed, our values and the quality of our award winning gelato and sorbet remain the same.

Our vision is to create an integrated business of food manufacturing, food retailing and food tourism, built on a strong connection to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We are passionate about showcasing Maleny, the surrounding region, its people, produce and stories.

We invite you to visit us at our store and cafe in Maple Street, Maleny, to experience our fromagerie, select from our range of local produce, enjoy a coffee, or the deli-style dining and of course, try our delicious gelato and sorbet.

We look forward to sharing our Maleny Food Co. journey with you.
