COLD COM­FORT FOR PRO­DUC­ERS

Country Smallholding - - July News -

Who doesn’t like an ice cream on a hot sum­mer’s day? Here in the UK we have some 1,904 mil­lion dairy cows (lat­est Defra fig­ures), so why are we the sec­ond largest ice cream im­porter in the world after Ger­many?

In 2016, the UK im­ported ap­prox­i­mately £ 240m worth of the stuff. In an ef­fort to re­dress the bal­ance, the NFU has re­launched its dig­i­tal ice cream map for the sum­mer of 2018. The map shows where NFU mem­bers across Eng­land and Wales are pro­duc­ing real Bri­tish dairy ice cream. It is de­signed to con­nect the pub­lic with lo­cal dairy ice cream pro­duc­ers — many of whom are small­hold­ers — and help peo­ple dis­cover top qual­ity Bri­tish dairy prod­ucts, as well as the sto­ries be­hind each unique pro­ducer.
