Description: 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 in Maple Street, Maleny, to experience our walk-in 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.

I really love the ice cream and gelato here but over time the small size has gotten VERY small. Disappointing.

Whenever we travel up to this area, this is our eatery of choice. Wonderful sandwiches and light meals. Good coffee and great ice creams to finish the meal.

We sampled a couple of local cheese from this place and they were all superb! We had the camanbert, triple brie, triple brie with truffle, vintage cheddar and kenilworth blue. The stand out for us was the Kenilworth blue; my husband is usually not a blue cheese fan but even he suggested we buy a 2nd block!

We brought cheeses from the fromagerie. They are exquisite, tasty and a delight to eat.

We spent 30 minutes (at least) in the cold area choosing $200 of cheeses. They have cheeses from everywhere and are well priced.

We also brought jellies (pastes??), biscuits and port. All of which were served with as much happiness when we started (with no knowledge of how much we were spending) to the end when we were holding everyone up.

If you are in Malany pop in and sample some cheeses. Well worth it.
