About us

As well as being the leading Australian ice manufacturer and distributor, Bells Pure Ice is in the business of helping people have a good time. Our ice takes centre stage at backyard barbecues, parties, camping trips, beach days, and of course Christmas - our busiest day of the year.


As the name suggests, Bells Pure Ice produces crystal clear ice made to Australian food safety standards from filtered and purified water. Being safe to eat, Bells Pure Ice is the natural choice to keep your food and drinks cool in the hot Australian sun. Manufactured since 1926, Bells Pure Ice is the trusted name in commercial and retail ice supplies. We also have 20 years experience supplying quality, pure ice nationally.

Scale

To ensure a constant supply, Bells Pure Ice has nine company-owned manufacturing plants capable of producing more than 1,200 tonnes of ice daily.

Each of these plants has on-site cold storage facilities and together with Bells Pure Ice standalone Cold Storage warehouses, allows Bells Pure Ice to store in excess of 16,000 pallets of ice at any one time.

This large-scale production and storage allows us to provide national distribution coverage for major retailers including 7-Eleven, BP, BWS, Caltex, Coles, Coles Express, Dan Murphy’s, First Choice Liquor, Freedom Fuels, Liquorland, Puma Energy, Viva Energy, Woolworths and Woolworths Petrol.

Infrastructure

Bells Pure Ice was the first ice company in Australia to successfully operate multi-site production and distribution facilities.

To meet our customers' requests we have grown to a national operation over the last 20 years. This is via organic growth, customer requests and the successful amalgamation of a number of other ice suppliers - one of which has been in operation since 1926.

Bells Pure Ice now has a substantial network of infrastructure assets.

9 ice manufacturing plants and associated cold storage warehouses
22 stand alone cold storage warehouses
14 sub-contracted ice manufacturers with associated cold storage warehouses
1 head office comprising accounting and IT professionals
9,000+ customer sites across Australia
8,500+ ice freezer cabinets at retailers across Australia
Innovation

Always at the forefront of innovation, Bells Pure Ice has invested in cutting-edge technology to provide customers with a seamless ordering and delivery experience.

Robots are used in the manufacturing process ensuring all ice is made to HACCP certification standards.

Our innovation is combined with an integrated CRM, logistics and accounting system which manages the user experience from placing orders to invoicing at the time of delivery.

Bells Pure Ice IT systems are staffed by a team across Australia, who make a vital contribution to the operation of our business. Innovation is necessary to facilitate national coverage of DIFOT efficiency.
