Our activity commenced in 1998, with the production of ice-cream in waffle cups, on a small territory. However, the ambitious plans to create a wide range of products led to the building of a new factory, thus developing a variety of flavors and new delights. From these humble beginnings, we became a market leader. Up to nowadays, Sandra ice-cream is enjoyed by various customers across Moldova, its distribution having expanded in the Near East and in Africa, where our ice-cream is known under the Sandra brand. Currently, we are committed by the loyalty we have towards our customers to develop our unique range of top quality ice-cream products in our state-of-the-art facilities.
