At Pelwatte we strive to inculcate familiar flavours in to our ice-cream range. The launch of the new flavours has been very exciting for us as people embrace the creamy, 100% locally manufactured difference.”

Pelwatte Dairy is currently testing 11 flavours to be further developed and launched to the market shortly.  Two new regular flavours will be launched within the next few month. The premium range will begin mass production in 2020 in both cups and tubs.
