CAMPERS PANTRY and VAN DIEMENS LAND CREAMERY, two Tasmanian brands collaborating to combine two passions: ice cream and the great outdoors.



Launceston, Australia: CAMPERS PANTRY, a leading manufacturer of freeze-dried food for outdoor adventurers, has partnered with VAN DIEMENS LAND CREAMERY, an award-winning Tasmanian ice cream producer, to create a new line of freeze-dried hiking ice cream.

The new hiking ice cream line combines VAN DIEMENS LAND CREAMERY's high-quality ingredients and artisanal techniques with CAMPERS PANTRY's freeze-drying expertise to create a convenient and delicious treat for hikers, camper's and outdoor enthusiasts.

"Our customers have been asking for a freeze-dried dessert option for their outdoor adventures, and we knew that VAN DIEMENS LAND CREAMERY would be the perfect partner to bring this idea to life," said AJ, Managing Director & Founder of CAMPERS PANTRY. "Their commitment to using local ingredients and traditional techniques aligns perfectly with our values, and we're excited to introduce this new line to our customers."

The hiking ice cream line features three flavours: Whisky, Chocolate Gelato, and Pepperberry & Leatherwood Honey. Each package contains one serve of freeze-dried ice cream, which can be eaten straight from the packet for a creamy and satisfying dessert on the trail.

"We're thrilled to collaborate with CAMPERS PANTRY on this new line of freeze-dried hiking ice cream," said Paul, Owner of VAN DIEMENS LAND CREAMERY. "As outdoor enthusiasts, we know how important it is to have delicious and convenient food options on the trail, and we're proud to bring the taste of Tasmania to hikers around Australia, if not the world."

The new line of hiking ice cream is now available on the CAMPERS PANTRY website and select retailers throughout Australia, including the two VAN DIEMENS LAND CREAMERY locations in Hobart and Elizabeth Town.
