We currently hold the ice cream concessions for the Dorset County Show, Yeovil Show, Romsey Show as well as the RHS Cardiff Flower Show.

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

  • £10 million in product and public liability insurance
  • Robust food safety management systems


Purbeck Ice Cream’s target audience are the 35-plus demographic. Our ice creams are also aimed at families who are looking for a luxury treat whilst on holiday. 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 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.
