Belfonte Dairy Products
Locally owned, nationally enjoyed
With big dreams, door-to-door milkman Sal Belfonte began Belfonte Dairy Distribution Inc. in 1969. The small family company grew, and in December of 1985, Belfonte became the first locally owned ice cream plant in Kansas City.
Now, with more than 190 products sold in more than 550 supermarkets and stores and offered in more than 600 restaurants and other outlets, Belfonte ice cream is far from its humble beginnings. Its ice cream flavors have expanded to match the growing company, now offering choices like “Sticky Bun,” “Espresso Extreme,” “Chocolate to Die For,” and “Cherry Almond Truffle.”
