We had our most successful year for awards to date! We won 6 Great Taste Awards (including 3 Stars for our Alphonso Mango Sorbet!); 3 x UK Ice Cream Championship trophies; we won the UK heat of the European Gelato Festival and Reserve Champion at the Scottish Ice Cream Award. Then we won Food & Drink Company of the Year at the Lanarkshire Business Awards and were a finalist in the Scotland Food & Drink Awards for Brand Success – phew!
Equi’s Ice Cream secures it’s biggest retail contract to date with the Co-op, which saw our signature flavours of Double cream vanilla and Isle of Skye sea salt & caramel listed across the whole of Scotland. Within 6 months Equi’s picked up the prestigious ‘local supplier of the year’ award at the annual Co-op Scottish awards in Glasgow, coupled with the Isle of skye flavour winning Grocery product of the year!
The Equi’s brand proudly fulfilled our first ever export to Texas, USA by supplying our fantastic range of 500ml retail tubs to the state’s leading supermarket chain Central Market HEB. The products went live in store and online and have been a huge hit across the pond so far!
Over the past 3 years Equi’s Ice Cream has become an instantly recognisable retail brand across Scotland in the convenience store sector. In early 2020 we have added more key partners in this area by striking deals with Spar Scotland and the One O One convenience store chain to stock our impulse and take-home products in Equi’s branded can freezers.
