Milton Keynes ice cream company receives coveted Great Taste star!

The Willen Ice Cream Company is immensely proud to have received one Great Taste star for its ‘Simply Dairy’ ice cream at the recent Great Taste Awards - the world’s largest and most trusted food and drink awards.

Established in 2017, the independent and family run ice cream company hand-crafts premium dairy, dairy free and vegan artisan ice creams using the finest and, where possible, locally sourced natural ingredients.

The ‘Simply Dairy’ ice cream went through a rigorous and independent judging process by a number of food experts; which resulted in The Willen Ice Cream Company being awarded with one star for creating a product that delivers on ‘fantastic flavours’.

The ice cream was described by the judges as:

“This simple looking pale gelato is beautiful in its simplicity. It has a gorgeous, subtle milk flavour that is clean and yet full of dairy charm. It's both refreshing and indulgent.”

“This could become a regular purchase among those who appreciate a simple and well-made dairy ice cream that achieves its flavour entirely from the high-quality simple ingredients.”

Richard Gordon, owner of The Willen Ice Cream Company says: “It is an absolute honour to have been awarded this incredible accolade from one of the top awards in our industry.

“To be able to now display the instantly recognisable gold and black Great Taste star – the highly respected seals of approval – on our ‘Simply Dairy’ ice cream is a dream come true!

“We are so proud of how far we have come and know we have so much more to achieve. Thank you to all our customers for supporting us. We couldn’t have done this without you!”
