The Shropshire Ice Cream Company are having an exciting year. Their new vegan range of ice cream has had a far from icy reception.

At the 2019 Great Taste Awards, out of 12,772 products sent in from over 100 different countries and only around half of entries obtaining stars, The Shropshire Ice Cream Company received awards for both its Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream and Vegan Salted Caramel Ice Cream in the 'dairy-free, ready to serve’ category. This means judges dubbed it as a food that delivers fantastic flavour.

The local ice cream connoisseurs served up ice cream in a virtual reality session at Shropshire BizFest and have attended local food events across the region, whilst expanding their range and offering. 

Following further investment in machinery and equipment, the artisan food producer is now in a position to expand the number of restaurants, ice cream parlours, farm shops and delis that it supplies to in the county.
