Rimini Sigep Exhibition 2019

Recently Jonathan and Elisa visited Rimini in Italy for the Sigep Ice Cream Exhibition where some of the world’s best Ice Cream Companies show off their Flavours and Products, this is a place we love visiting every year to see and taste different flavours of Ice Cream and the wonderful scenery of Italy. We also gave our good friends at Meucci a visit, who sell all different types of Italian flavour pastes and ingredients for Ice Cream and Gelato and who we have a very good relationship with. We highly recommend this exhibition to anyone who is passionate about the ice cream industry and how it works and anyone that wants to kick start a career in the ice cream industry. We had a wonderful time and met a lot of great people and we will definitely be returning again next year!

Please see a gallery of our favourite photos from our trip!

We are also looking forward to the ICA Exhibition in Harrogate next month which we are taking part in, which will include our takeaway packaging and flavours of Ice Cream to try for yourself! Come down and see us!

Wow What a Show!

As we recently mentioned, we were attending the Ice Cream Expo this year which was held from the 13th to the 15th February at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate.

our Stand at the exhibition

We had a really good show, meeting lots of new and existing customers and peers. Our new compostable packing range went down a treat and had a lot of interest, the range includes ice cream tubs, spoons and straws. All of which are fully compostable.

We were also lucky enough to have been interviewed by The One Show discussing the science behind one of our favourite topics, ice cream. Keep an eye out over the next couple of weeks and see if you can spot us!

Ice Cream Flavourings

Oh and lastly (how could we forget!) we were also delighted to receive an award for best product in the packaging category.

Best New Product Award

As always our thanks to the Ice Cream Alliance for putting on another exceptional show, we are looking forward to next year already.


Ice Cream Expo 2018

Once again this year Takeaway Supplies will be attending the Ice Cream Expo from 13th to 15th February 2018 at the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate. Come along and see us at Stand 60.

The Ice Cream Expo is organised by the Ice Cream Alliance and features a wide range of ice cream varieties as well as ice cream equipment and supplies. It is attended by suppliers, retailers, caterers and manufacturers of all things ice cream and as the only show dedicated to the ice cream industry is very popular among all ages and sections of society.

The aim of the Expo is to “encourage and support the production, vending and consumption of premium quality ice creams and other frozen treats” and it showcases all sorts of equipment and machinery used in the ice cream industry. It’s a great place to find new products, suppliers, inspiration or a brand new business venture!

The Whitby Event October 2016

We were delighted to attend the annual Whitby Event in October this year, with over 400 guests from all over the UK and Ireland. As it so often does, this marks the end of the season for ice cream van and mobile business owners and provides a lovely setting for everyone to network and discuss the season just gone.

Whitby Morrison proudly displayed a selection of their new ice cream vans which for some people was the first time they had seen the new models. For others the event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the life of Bryan Whitby the company’s founder who sadly passed away earlier this year. He will truly be missed.

National Ice Cream Competition Winners

Fancy tasting award winning ice cream! At Takeaway Supplies that is just what you will be getting with our Thai Green Curry and Chocolate Praline dairy ice cream. At this year’s 2015 National Ice Cream Championships we were awarded two diplomas of merits in the supply house open flavour class for these two mouth-watering ice creams.

Run by the Ice Cream Alliance this popular ice cream competition is a membership trade association award. It is held yearly and is an opportunity for companies across the UK and the world to showcase their latest ice cream flavours and take home some great awards. The competition has been running since the 1940’s and the number of entrants is increasing every year, making the competition that much harder.

Personally I couldn’t think of any job better than being a judge at this completion, can you!

Takeaway Supplies at the Ice Cream Expo 2015

Latest Stock Update for May

With summer just around the corner, well maybe a couple of corners we have increased our stock to include some of the popular items required over the warmer months to keep your customers happy and to keep you in supply of these items.

As from now we are holding good stock levels of Topping Sauce and cases of Bubbley’s. These items can be dispatch via our courier service to ensure you get speedy delivery of any of these items, so they arrive when you need them.

We also are holding good stocks of speciality dipped waffle cones. Please note the cones can only be shipped out on a mixed pallet order or collected from our wholesale shop. These waffle cones are very popular and are a little different to the normal waffle cones so definitely worth buying now to stock up before the summer rush is upon us.

We have also made some changes to our store, and have now opened our doors to the public!

If customers are looking for Ice Cream disposables, sundries, catering supplies or catering equipment we are here to help and have the stock you require. If we do not have what you require why not speak with our team and they will happily advise you on when this product becomes available or if we are able supply it to you.

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 0:900 – 17:00.

We look forward to seeing you all and taking your orders of these new products we are now supplying.

Sign Writing Service Now Available

Takeaway supplies are now offering sign writing on second hand Fridges and Freezers purchased through our company to our customers. We are able to add anything that you the customer want, you just let us know and we will organise it for you, it is that simple.

Many customers have asked for their company logo, prices, drinks or products list to be added with sign writing, and in the past we have had to pass on this service to another company, but after seeing a gap in the market we decided we can offer our customers everything they want under the one roof, so it is simply a matter of you letting us know what you want and we can get the sign writing added for you.

Takeaway supplies are unique in offering this service as no other retailer offers it. We want to work with our customer by offering them all the services they need, so they can buy confidentially with us and know that we can also take care of any signwriting before the product gets delivered.

We are also now offering a larger selection of fridges and freezers than ever before but if you want something we do not have, have a chat to one of our team and we will endeavour to source it for you. We are always getting in new stock so chances are you can find what you need with us.

So for all your fridge, freezer and signwriting needs contact Takeaway Supplies
