Frosty Boy doubles production with new factory

Thursday, 27 November, 2014

Frozen dessert and beverage manufacturer Frosty Boy Australia has doubled its production capacity with the opening of a new factory at Yatala, north of the Gold Coast.

Frosty Boy CEO Dirk Pretorius said the company had outgrown its previous Loganholme site, with production capacity now equating to two million serves of soft-serve ice-cream daily.

With capacity sitting at 60% at Yatala, Pretorius said Frosty Boy was in a position for further growth. Over the past 14 years, Frosty Boy has maintained an average compound growth of 18% per year. The company now distributes product to 48 countries, with export representing 75% of sales.

The new plant extends across 6000 m2 and houses two production lines, the new, higher capacity plant and the relocated and upgraded plant from Frosty Boy’s former site.

“The plant’s manufacturing process is now entirely computer controlled, from the measurement of raw material through to the latest robotic technology used for packing, wrapping and palletising,” said Pretorius.
