The Gongs

We are extremely proud of our ice cream but ultimately, it is the feedback of our customers that counts the most. However, if on that journey we also get noticed by judges and award organisers then we never say no to a gong or two!  Here are just a few of the awards we have received over the years.

Family Business Awards

With family at the heart of our business, we were delighted to receive not one, but two Family Business of the Year awards. They say nothing is better than being acknowledged by your peers who really understand the hard work you put in every day and we were delighted to accept the awards on behalf of the New Forest Ice Cream family.

Food Manufacture Awards

We were delighted to achieve Highly Commended in the ‘Frozen Food Manufacturing Company of the Year’ category at the prestigious Food Manufacture Excellence Awards in 2018. In contrast to any other industry awards, the Food Manufacturer Excellence Awards were judged by an independent panel of leading experts on a number of different elements, including NPD quality assurance to supply chains and environmental contributions. This made receiving the award even more momentous and demonstrates our commitment to providing the best service and products to our customers.

The Great Taste Awards

Widely seen as the holy grail of accolades – the Great Taste Awards recognise the very best products in the world of food and drink. Receiving over 12,000 entries each year, just 25% achieve one gold star, less than 10% receive two gold stars and just a handful are awarded a top rating of three gold stars.

Since 2012, New Forest Ice Cream is extremely proud to have received at least one new gold star product every year, and delighted to have amassed a total of 19 product awards to date. Blind taste tested by a panel of expert judges, food critics, chefs and reviewers, it is all about the flavour and texture of the ice cream and therefore we are delighted that our quality shone through. The 19 stars gained across our range is a true testament to the quality and consistency of our ice creams and sorbets, and obviously the team of people that make it all happen!
