Our Ingredients for Success

We are specialists in ice cream cones, ingredients & decorations and we are committed to serving our customers beyond delivering products. Quality & service are a key focus for us as well as offering differentiation for our customers. The ice cream market is not only our business it is our passion and part of our family culture. It is as important to us as it is to you that we maintain top quality standards in all areas of production, distribution and sales support.  

"I first would like to thank you and the factory staff who took the time to send us the samples. We are really impressed by the quality of your cones and they are so tasty!  We know now that we have been missing out for all these years!" Ray, Scotland

The Value of Our Heritage

To survive through wars, periods of high interest rates, recession and market consolidation takes something special; it requires passion and determination.  MEC3 summed it up in their note of congratulation on the occasion of our centenary:

"A company that exists for 100 years is a company, in which for a hundred years people have worked and continue to work with great passion and love.  Their success is the sum of all the positivity donated to the world in a century of commitment.”

So with our heritage, our ingredient for success is striving for the best.  Passion and commitment to our business are in our blood - they are at the heart of our business.

Made in the UK

So, words are all very well but what does this actually mean to you - the customer?  Being the only UK manufacturer of a sugar cones, wafer cones and waffle cones means minimal handling and therefore reduced breakages, which inevitably saves you time and optimises efficiency.  We supply to you directly from our bakery in Manchester, shortening your supply chain and creating a positive impact on the environment.
