The Saffron Ice Cream Company, Saffron Walden
The team at the Saffron Ice Cream Company are passionate artisan ice cream makers producing products by hand everyday on a family farm in
Saffron Walden. We produce in small batches using good old fashioned production techniques to create honest products of superior quality and consistency. Our traditional Essex dairy ice cream embraces and promotes the heritage of a Great British icon!
Following years of making Christmas puddings for friends, in 2015, Alison Lilly decided to launch the LillyPuds brand from her Chelmsford home. The puddings are scrumptiously light with reduced added sugar, a high fruit content and no mixed peel or dairy ingredients. Our awardwinning puddings are styled for gifting and dining and are available for foodservice and retail.
