Auckland Off The Beaten Path: 86 reviews and 145 photos


Tip Top has always been an icon of New Zealand and to Aucklander?s and surrounding areas, the Tip Top building and sign heading into the Auckland area has always been the sign that you are almost there. That?s certainly the way it was to our family when heading back home after family holidays. Tip Top is New Zealand's leading ice cream company. Some of the good old favourites are Trumpet, FruJu, Jelly Tip, Popsicle, and newer favourites - Chill, Memphis Meltdown, Moritz and Paradiso. They have two factories, one at Tip Top Corner in Mt Wellington, and one in Christchurch. The Christchurch factory is more for meeting the specific demands of the Japanese market.

In 1997, Tip Top was purchased by a West Australian company (Peters & Brownes Foods from Heinz Watties) which has made them the largest independent ice cream business in the Southern Hemisphere.

Location : Tip Top Corner, Mt Wellington
