L.A. Creamery LLC has reached agreements with several grocery chains to place its artisan ice cream in more than 40 markets across Southern California.

The Chatsworth maker of all-natural ice cream said it has struck deals with Bristol Farms Inc., Lazy Acres Market, Arden Group Inc.'s Gelson’s locations and Kroger Co.'s Albertsons.

Founded in 2010, the company’s products until this point have only been available at some hotels, specialty markets and restaurants, including hip upscale chain Umami Burger. Adam Fleischman, chief executive of Umami, took a stake in L.A. Creamery last year.

Pint-sized containers will be available in several flavors, including Salted Caramel, Honeycomb, Toasted Coconut and Peanut Butter Chocolate.
