Saffron Ice Cream Company, who produce their ice cream at Abbey Farm in the town, have won prestigious gold stars for their ‘Traditional Chocolate’ and ‘Summerdown Farm Mint Chocolate’ flavours of ice cream at the awards.

Production manager Harry Bond said: “We’re very proud to have won at this year’s awards. We strive to source the very best ingredients from producers as passionate as us and we think it shows in our products. A lot of time and effort is put into every single batch and it’s nice to have the recognition of our dedication.”
