As you know by now Ice Cream Rolls have landed firmly in the UK but did you know that most rolled ice cream businesses us a soft serve ‘Mr Whippy’ style ice cream mix, which contains various artificial E numbers and palm oil from unsustainable sources?
The palm oil industry is linked to major issues such as deforestation, climate change, and animal cruelty in the countries where it is produced. You have probably seen the recent news headlines reporting that an area the equivalent in size to 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour to make way for palm oil production, leaving species such as the Orangutan at serious risk of extinction. Palm oil is is also cheap and unhealthy.
You might also have seen Iceland make the headlines last month. Iceland will stop using palm oil in its own products by the end of 2018. We choose to use an artisan ice cream mix that contains nothing but the best quality ingredients that are local to where we live.
We believe our customers deserve the highest quality and so we worked hard to use a fresh dairy ice cream at the events we trade at whether that be a festival, a wedding, or a corporate party.
The liquid ice cream that we turn in to ice cream rolls is handmade in Cumbria, just 1 hour up the M6. The ice cream is made using whole milk and cream from a small herd of Jersey cows owned by Steve and his family at the Handmade Ice Cream Company. The stabiliser and emulsifier in the ice cream are plant-based.
When you hire us for an event or see us out and about at festivals across the North West, you can be assured that a tub of ice cream rolls from us will always be served with a 100% compostable ice cream tub and spoon. We also buy our liquid ice cream in reusable containers. Steve fills it up for us and we return the empty containers to him for reuse. This isn’t always the case because soft serve mixes are sold in tetra packs, which currently are not recyclable in many parts of the country.
As our business grows we promise to evolve it with quality ingredients and an environmentally conscious heart and mind.
