The packaged ice industry in Australia is very old at that.
Even today it has been a long established business model.
It is very similar but the packaged ice business that existed in America until the Ice Factories started like Darks Ice in Newcastle.
The refrigeration machinery and storage company was founded in 1912 by Newcastle Samuel Dark.
Dark’s Ice Works & Cold Storage Ltd was located on Australian Agricultural Company land at Wharf Road, Honeysuckle Point.
The company was registered in N.S.W. back on 25 June 1920 and still is today a registered company in Newcastle and listed as an investment Co.
Bags of ice are produced in regional production factories around Australia.
The ice is then kept in frozen storage factories.
Then the production factories deliver to customers and retailers on a weekly, fortnightly or on a monthly basis depending on each retail site.
The ice is usually stored on pallets at the storage factories, but due to the nature of the retail freezers and retail outlets, the ice is always hand unloaded at the retail delivery point more than likely a service station or outdoor sports shops.
