Supporting customers

Specialising in Working Alongside Customers

Antonelli has traditionally provided support and advice to customers from gelato making to display and decoration. We provide an array of ice cream cones to complement your brand, incorporating customisation and added value, whether you are looking for simple, smart, generic or niche.  Specialising in working alongside customers, we can help ensure important family or cultural traditions are maintained whilst using modern processes and world leading MEC3 ingredients.

Buying Local

As one of the few UK cones manufacturers, and sole UK maker of waffle cones, naturally the ‘miles to market’ are instantly less than many of our competitors, who import many of their products. So when you buy from us you are not just enjoying the benefit of high quality cones, but helping the environment and the UK economy too. The other benefit of buying UK manufactured cones, is the reduced lead time when demand is high and stocks are low.

We also endeavour to purchase from local trade suppliers, where possible. Whilst we are considering the environment we should also mention our recycling policy; with currently 92% of our waste being recycled and we are striving to increase this.  

Technical Specialists

Located in the centre of the UK,  our National Training & Demonstration Centre provides purpose built facilities enabling us to offer ice cream training and demonstrations as part of the Antonelli Gelato Academy. Whether you are starting up an ice cream business or you have your own gelateria or ice cream parlour, or indeed you have years of experience but you’re looking for some tips on how to improve or adapt your processes or recipes; our technical trainers are on hand to advise you at the appropriate level.  

Something for Everyone

As leaders in the specialist cones market, the Antonelli bakery team take great pride in baking a range of 'inclusive' cones to enable everyone to enjoy their favourite ice cream. To that end our product range includes organic, gluten free and additive free cones. There are no hidden ingredients in our products and our wafer cones are naturally low in sugar.  MEC3 also provide products which are free from allergens and suitable for varied special dietary needs.
