As a family business now in its fifth decade we feel very proud to have been a part of the ever-growing artisan ice cream industry in the UK and Ireland. It’s interesting to see how our business has evolved over this time.
From the 1980s we recognised the need for “in-house” expertise and easily accessible demonstrations of our product range. We even ran our own “Giovanni’s” Gelateria in central Hereford as a working showroom. Although we have moved premises and our showroom and laboratory have had many facelifts during the decades, it is always our aim to show the latest technologies and designs for not only ice cream production equipment but also the best display, storage and bar-counter solutions for coffee shops, café’s and restaurants.
Did you know, our team has over 150 years of combined experience in the gelato and refrigeration world? We love what we do. We are dedicated to helping our customers understand the many aspects of making and selling your own Artisan ice cream. This knowledge we gladly pass onto both existing and new clients as part of our full service. It’s exciting to help a new business take its first steps into the world of ice cream and there is nothing more satisfying than hearing that business is thriving and in many cases expanding.
Our latest upgrade to the showroom has just taken place and you are welcome to visit and see our brand new fully-operational gelato counter and laboratory. We were the first to offer monthly “Introduction to Gelato” demonstration days for newcomers and are still running them today. It’s a pleasure to welcome experienced makers to our lab to try our machines with their mix when considering bigger or alternative machines. We also love the opportunity to discuss a new shop fitting project over a cappuccino!
