Find out about what makes the New Forest Ice Cream so special…
New Forest Ice Cream is a successful family business founded in 1983 by Lawrie and Sue Jenman. Now all of the family, together with a growing, highly skilled and dedicated team, produce consistently top quality, great tasting ice cream.
We are now celebrating our 28th year as a rapidly expanding business, but our commitment to quality, service and value, for all our customers, has remained the same. These range from local village shops, pubs and restaurants , through to national retail chains, major leisure parks and wholesalers. Our core values are now reflected in the enviable reputation of our name, now recognised as the market leading brand throughout the South.
We are also very aware of our responsibility as part of the local community and our environment in the beautiful New Forest area. Some practical examples of this include, active involvement in local charitable work, ongoing research into healthier ice cream products, staff car sharing schemes and various carbon footprint reduction initiatives.
New Forest Ice Cream is committed to producing only the highest quality ice cream - made from the finest ingredients using our own recipes. Fresh dairy cream and whole milk ensure a superb tasting (and multi-award winning) Ice Cream range. In addition to our premium scoop ice cream and sorbets, our offering is complimented by our own range of quality impulse products - with some old and new favourites that appeal to everyone - from young children to adults. We can also supply a full range of ‘dry’ goods (e.g. ice cream mix and cones), national brand lolly lines and specialty desserts where required.
It is our policy to avoid artificial colourings, flavourings and other additives that might be harmful to children. We also avoid GM ingredients in all of our products.
Service is ‘priority number one’ in terms of meeting the needs, and in many cases exceeding the expectations of our very diverse and demanding customer base. Time after time New Forest Ice Cream has succeeded in winning more business on service alone - where competitors have, for example, simply failed to deliver, thereby letting customers down - typically during the busy Summer period.
Finally it’s also very important to our customers that we can offer our product range and service at one of the most competitive price points in the industry - that’s why we say our motto is: ‘Quality local ice cream - at sensible prices!’.
