Akron, N.Y. – April 9, 2019 – Perry’s Ice Cream Company, Inc., a Great Lakes regional brand and Upstate New York’s #1 ice cream choice, has announced the launch of its first dairy-free, oat milk-based frozen dessert.  

Perry’s Oats Cream™ line features seven decadent flavors available in pints:  Apple Strudel, Blueberry Pancake, Coconut Caramel, Oat Latte, Peanut Butter Coffee Cake, Peanut Butter & Cookies and Snickerdoodle.  The lineup is vegan, non-dairy, lactose-free, a good source of fiber, and made with whole grains. 

“I’m extremely proud of our talented team of research and development experts who have spent a significant amount of time crafting Oats Cream™ and the extraordinary results speak for themselves! The creamy texture of the oat milk and mild oat flavor means taste and consistency are not compromised for the dairy-free product. The indulgent flavors are truly delicious, and we’re excited to serve a wider population that may not have always been able to enjoy our products in the past,” said Robert Denning, president and CEO.

“For more than 100 years, we have brought innovative flavors to our ice cream line, using only fresh cream and milk,” continued Denning. “However, we recognized today’s consumers have a growing desire for great tasting, plant-based frozen desserts.   Simply stated, not everyone has been able to enjoy Perry’s ice cream due to lactose intolerance and other dietary choices until now.”

Perry’s has partnered with Elmhurst® 1925 to provide the Milked Oats™ used to produce Oats Cream™. Elmhurst is based in Elma, New York, allowing Perry’s to continue utilizing local vendors to create quality products. Elmhurst 1925 makes simple, nutritious and incredibly delicious plant-based nut and grain milks – all with six ingredients or less.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Perry’s to offer consumers a plant-based alternative to traditional ice cream that tastes just as creamy and indulgent,” said Peter Truby, vice president of marketing at Elmhurst 1925. “Crafted with our premium and nutritious Milked Oats, Oats Cream™ is the perfect non-dairy treat, and we’re excited to support Perry’s endeavor to serve a wider group of people who are not consuming dairy.”

Berry into You captures the euphoria of love, everything from that giddy feeling when you can’t stop thinking of someone to the comfort of an enduring romance.”

Perry’s Ice Cream Celebrates 100 Years

November 14th, 2018

Perry’s Ice Cream, a fourth generation, family-owned ice cream company headquartered in Akron, New York, today celebrated their 100th birthday and a century of commitment to founder H. Morton Perry’s vision of quality and embracing of his insistence to ‘make sure you put in enough of the good stuff.’

“We’re incredibly proud to reach this significant 100-year milestone. This achievement is truly one that would not be possible without our loyal customers, suppliers, hardworking team, and unbelievable support from the Western New York community,” said Robert Denning, president and CEO of Perry’s Ice Cream.

“Perry’s strategic investments into our balanced business model have led to the rapid growth and success of today.  Our future is bright as a market leader with the Perry’s brand, our world-class partner brand distribution network, and as a thriving contract and private label partner to Fortune 500 and other top brands. The ‘good stuff’ that H. Morton instilled in us will always remain and our next century of business will be marked with the philosophy, ‘what’s possible, think big, then double that!’”, noted Denning.

Founded in 1918, Perry’s has carried on the spirit and traditions of H. Morton Perry for a century. To this day, the family-owned and operated ice cream company still slow-cooks their 75 ice cream flavors one batch at a time, to create a consistently creamy product. Perry’s also continues to support the New York State dairy industry and local economy by purchasing milk from local farmers. In fact, nearly 100 percent of the milk comes from farms within 50 miles of Akron.

Today, Perry’s has more than 375 employees and covers a distribution network of over 100,000 square miles and is the 22nd largest ice cream brand in the country. Perry’s products can be found across all of New York and Ohio, as well as Western Pennsylvania and parts of Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia.

As Perry’s looks to its next century, the company will continue to invest in its future and develop innovative products to keep up with evolving customer wants and needs. This includes more pint-sized offerings and expanded plant-based products (the company recently launched a dairy-free line).  On the service side, Perry’s plans to outfit its drivers with new, handheld devices that will give them improved order visibility and flexibility at the point of delivery.

To celebrate the milestone anniversary year, Perry’s Ice Cream and several of the company’s partners celebrated “Perry’s Ice Cream Day” in Akron, N.Y. Several elected officials proclaimed the November 13, 2018 holiday in their respective districts, including the State of New York and several jurisdictions across Western New York.

Perry’s launched four limited-edition retro flavors at the start of 2018: Parkerhouse (circa 1950s), Heavenly Hash (circa 1970s), Butterscotch Sundae (circa 1980s), and Malt Shoppe (circa 1990s). The retro flavors reached 150 percent of Perry’s Ice Cream’s sales goals in the first half of the year, and the success has led Perry’s to keep two of the retro flavors – Parkerhouse and Heavenly Hash – in production even after the anniversary celebration is over.
