I have been involved with the association for the last 45-years. I love coming here, and especially this year after lockdowns. It’s wonderful to meet up with so many ice cream people.
If you are looking for any ice cream flavours, or you are going to start an ice cream business, you have everything you would need here.
We are also have the national ice cream competitions as well. I have been lucky enough to have been a national champion, and it is a wonderful feeling.
The association has a lot of history, may of the companies have been trading over 100-years. The show is UK-focused with manufacturers and suppliers, but this year we have a number of Italian companies exhibiting.
