Streets is an Australian ice-cream brand owned by the multi-national British-Dutch company Unilever. It is part of Unilever's ice cream brand Heartbrand. The company is in a long term contract with dairy company Dairy Farmers.

Founding and history[edit]

Streets was founded in Corrimal, New South Wales, in the 1930s by Edwin "Ted" Street and his wife Daisy and is now Australia's largest ice-cream manufacturer. He set up a distribution depot at Bexley and then a factory where products were manufactured at in the Sydney suburb of Turrella until 1996, when production moved to a new facility in Minto. Today most cream-based products are produced at Minto, while water-based products are imported from Asia.[1]

Streets introduced the Paddle Pop in 1953, and sold over ninety million units by century's end. It is per capita the world's best selling ice cream.[2]


The logo that it uses is the same Heartbrand logo that HB Ice Cream in Ireland use, Wall's ice cream, Good Humor, GB Glace, Selecta, Kibon and Algida use in the United Kingdom, United States, Philippines, Brazil and Italy respectively; all brands are owned by Unilever.

In 2013, Streets will be included in Fiji and Nauru.
