About The Treat Factory & The Dairy Bar
The South Coast's largest gourmet food providore
The Treat Factory is a family business producing preserves, condiments, old fashioned confectionary and quality Belgian chocolates from recipes handed down over 4 generations.
We are the region's largest gourmet food providore, producing more than 300 varieties of jams, marmalades, sauces, chutneys, dressings, chocolates, confectionary and more. Our products have a strong reputation of quality winning many Fine Food awards over the years.
Visitors to The Treat Factory can purchase from our onsite retail store, view production of chocolates and confectionary (during production time), smell the preserves simmering and nibble on some tasters. There are plenty of treats, both sweet and savoury. We have it all!
The Treat Factory is located in the historic Central Creamery in Berry, NSW, Australia. The Treat Factory is nestled adjacent picturesque dairy fields and the historic building in which it resides retains its original exterior and heritage charm. The heritage township of Berry is surrounded by rich dairy country, boutique eateries, wineries and is a thriving tourism destination. The Dairy Bar located at The Treat Factory is a traditional style milk bar café. Relax on the undercover deck and watch the cows graze as you sip on a milkshake or freshly churned gelato made with South Coast Dairy milk and cream.
The Treat Factory has been operating for 25 years and grown to become a popular tourist destination on the South Coast.
