Papaphilippou & Patisserie Panayiotis Ice Cream Ltd, also known as P&P Ice Cream, is the leading manufacturer of ice cream and related products in Cyprus.
Our company was officially founded in 1973 by two brothers-in-law, Panayiotis Christoforou and Panayiotis Papaphilippou, from a desire to offer the finest, all natural ice cream. However, the idea of ice cream dates back to the mid 60’s. In 1965, the two brothers-in-law started out in business as confectioners, making confectionery and all natural ice cream on a small scale. In 1973, the two young entrepreneurs decided to form a new company dedicated to their ice cream, which grew into a prosperous venture. The confectionery business is still around, known as La Patisserie.
In August 1993, the company became a member of the International Ice Cream Association. The Association’s activities range from legislative and regulatory advocacy to market research and industry training and education.
In March 1999, we moved in our new factory which has been fully approved by the EU. The factory is located in Paliometocho Industrial Zone in Nicosia District. It covers 7000m² on 13 acres of land and uses the latest in high-tech equipment in ice cream manufacture.
