About
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

We stopped to look at at their extensive impressive range of cheese. Stayed for lunch. The corn fritters with chilli sauce were delightful. My brother-in-law thought the same about the beef burger. Then we all tried the cherry ripe gelato. We swooned.

So I often buy cheese from here. There’s a great range. I bought some salami and asked for 100grams. The lady cut the salami and it came up with 156 grams. Now I know you can’t get it perfect when you cut the cheese or...More

Very disappointing, thought we would stop for coffee and cake. The coffee came and was barely drinkable as it was cold, the cakes came 10 minutes. The customer service was poor. I suggest trying somewhere else.
