School Milk Plans Good News for Dairy Farmers in the Short and Long Term  27 Jun 2014

The Government’s decision to require schools to provide free milk for children will help shape future consumption trends, according to the NFU, and in turn will provide more stability to dairy farmers in the short, and long term.

Education Secretary Michael Gove recently announced new food standards regulations for schools, intended to ensure the school diet is healthier for children. The new regulations, which will come into effect on January 1 2015, state that semi-skimmed milk should be available every day to children in order to address concerns about low calcium levels in children.

The regulations will also require one or more portions of vegetables or salad to be available every day, and at least three different fruits, and three different vegetables each week. Further limits are also being set on the quantity of sugary and fried foods served up each week.


Hot Summer: Check, Ice Cream: Check, Appropriate Machinery: ?  11 Apr 2014

Despite it only being mid-April long-range weather forecasters are already using some pretty heavy-duty words when describing what the UK can expect this summer. ‘Super summer’, ‘prolonged heat wave’, ‘hot sunshine’, ‘a summer to rival Ibiza’ are all terms that have been confidently touted by forecasters and newspapers alike in the past few weeks, and let’s hope they’re right.

Recent summers have been a little hit and miss to say the least and even though last summer was ‘nice’, it still didn’t live up to those endless days of sun we remember ten, fifteen, twenty years ago, and it certainly didn’t make up for the lack of sunshine we’ve experienced from the previous few years.

The ice cream industry was hit hard by the weather, but if the experts are right could this year be the year manufacturers revive it to the glory days of past? Well it seems that the weather platform may well be set to achieve it, now all that is needed is the appropriate machinery. Good ingredients warrant good machinery and the two together undoubtedly ends with an in-demand product, and an in-pocket manufacturer.


There’s Ice Cream on the CV  03 Dec 2013

We’ve always said that the ice cream industry attracts many individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit, some eccentric, some exceptional but all with the common belief that they can, in one way or another, evolve or reshape the industry for the better.

However, it appears that this thirst to develop and change things isn’t always clenched within the ice cream industry, or anything to do with the ice cream industry as a matter of fact, with some rarely talented individuals going on to carve successful careers in hugely unrelated sectors.

So, it Seems the Sun is Setting on a Sizzlingly Successful Summer   12 Sep 2013

With the recent downturn in the UK’s weather, it appears that another summer may have, what feels almost prematurely and suddenly, come an end; reinforced even more so if you’ve seen the Christmas decorations that have started to appear in all the major supermarkets. But, has it been a successful summer for ice cream manufacturers? Despite a mixed start, it appears so.

In typical fashion, the start of the summer saw the UK live up to its weathered reputation with regular rain showers, high winds and sporadic appearances from the distant yellow thing in the sky. This trend continued right up until the beginning of June and resulted in ice cream sales slumping by 3.9 per cent. Justifiably, many feared that the nightmare summer of 2012 was about to be relived.
