The ice cream business attended the show alongside global brands including Unilever, McCain and Fonterra, to name a few. The five-day event featured 5000 exhibitors from over 125 countries and had over 100,00 international visitors.
“Gulfood has been a fantastic opportunity for us to display this new range and network with buyers face to face. We’re confident that our luxury ice cream will be a hit with customers, and we look forward to rolling it out throughout Dubai and beyond,” commented Sally Newall, Founder, Simply Ice Cream.
The company has been making its handmade artisan ice cream for over 15 years in the heart of the Kentish countryside. Each tub is made with 50% double cream, giving it a creamy and decadent texture.
The brand can be currently found in select Co-Op, Southern Co-Op, Morrisons and Waitrose stores throughout the Southeast of England, as well as hundreds of independent retail partners.
Priced at UK£5.99 for a sharing tub, they offer flavours such as Brown Bread, Coffee and Kentish Cobnut Fudge and Stem Ginger and Marmalade. The brand has said it is continuing to expand its distribution throughout London and the Southeast.
