Simple, all-natural ice cream ingredients
A short and understandable ingredient list – less guilt without compromising indulgent taste and texture
As the global ice cream market continues to grow, frozen dessert brands are driving value by upgrading consumers to more expensive and indulgent offerings. This includes using rich flavours, textures and colours, and using provenance to designate premium ingredients which signal a luxury positioning.
As a manufacturer, you can offer smarter options by combining reduced sugar products with other benefits, such as lactose-free or protein enrichment add-ons. Healthier options offer greater enjoyment with less guilt and more indulgent taste and texture. Tap into the consumer interest in better-for-you choices to yield more opportunities and increase market penetration.
