An ice cream firm in Saffron Walden is celebrating after scooping three prizes at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The Saffron Ice Cream Company, in Abbey Farm Barns, was recognised as serving some of the nation’s tastiest treats with its ginger, honey and lavender ice creams.

Each flavour secured one of the awards’ prized stars, marking them as foods which deliver fantastic flavours.

The firm’s well-known salted butter caramel ice cream also got a mention after being recognised as a top five flavour in its category.

Dominic Parry, managing director, said: “We are thrilled to once again be recognised as a leading micro producer of dairy ice cream and sorbets at the Great Taste awards.

“These awards are highly sought after within the food industry so to win three is an outstanding achievement and something Harry Bond and Tommy Start, our production team, are thrilled with.

“You can’t rush producing a quality ice cream; it takes pride, passion, knowledge and skill. We are thrilled to produce our ice cream here in Saffron Walden using ingredients which are locally sourced and promoted.”
