Founding and history
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.
Streets introduced the Paddle Pop in 1953, and sold over ninety million units by centuries end. It ls per capita the world's best selling ice cream.
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 and Kibon use in the United Kingdom, United States, Philippines and Brazil respectively; all brands are owned by Unilever.
