We currently hold the ice cream concessions at several county shows as well as the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Flower Shows.

We have been awarded the highest accolade of 5 stars for our food hygiene standards by Purbeck District Council. In addition to a high standard of cleanliness, we are fully insured and accredited.

DEMOGRAPHIC APPEAL

Our ice creams are aimed at families who are looking for a luxury treat whether on holiday, at an event or merely just out and about. Our company story shows great providence and our ice creams are visually appealing to the eye and exude high quality and natural flavour.

We have flavours for the mature palate including Rum & Raisin, Salted Caramel and Berries & Clotted Cream, whilst our Honeycombe Hash, Raspberry Ripple and Mint Choc Baby Chip have greater appeal to the younger generation.

Our events fleet attend a number of different event types throughout the year and we tend to see our most successful turnover at shows with a more mature audience such as the three major RHS Flower Shows; as well as popular family festivals like Camp Bestival and Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival.
