We are pleased to report that the Antonelli stand was very busy last month at the annual Ice Cream and Gelato Expo hosted by the ICA in Harrogate. Despite our team being out in force with Directors, Business Relationship Managers, and Technical Managers from both Antonelli and MEC3, we found there were visitors crowding round the stand to discover what new products we had to offer. In fact it wasn’t even just the new products which drew the interest, but the fact that our waffle cones are made in the UK. With Brexit just weeks away, there is a certain amount of nervousness in the market about cones supply this season. None of us can predict what the result of the political discussions will be or if indeed there will be a result or merely an extension to the ongoing talks. One thing we can be sure of is that Antonelli will be making waffle cones, wafer cones and sugar cones in Manchester for many years to come!
As always the team enjoyed chatting with customers old and new - which is a fundamental part of the event - catching up with customers from across the UK. We found that the visitors to the stand were keen to give us feedback, whether we already knew them or not. Here are some of the things our visitors had to say:
If you didn’t make it to Harrogate you may have already caught up with us since in Dublin, Cornwall or Harlech. If not maybe we will see you at IFE in London, where you can catch up with Gary and Ryan on stand N3348. Alternatively if you would like to taste some of the new flavours which were so admired in the cabinets at Expo, book on to our Season Launch next week.
