Bradwell’s Dairy Ice Cream has been lovingly made in the little village of Bradwell in the Peak District, Derbyshire for well over 100 years.
Grandma Hannah founded Bradwell’s, locally producing her legendary recipes by hand,
in her front parlour, selling her ice cream across The Peak District.
She had ice brought in by train from Sheffield, as she had no electricity, which is where she
created the original flavours we still all know and love today. Her kitchen is now the busy
Ice Cream parlour, where traditional values remain as true as ever.
Hannah’s recipes were passed on to her grandson Noel Bradwell who, over the years, continued to develop and improve her recipes until 1992 when Lawrence Wosskow invested in the family business.
Over the years, our reputation grew and we are proud to be known as one of the region’s finest purveyors of quality, butter rich Dairy Ice Cream.
Our mouth-watering flavours still retain Bradwell’s characteristic core values - intensely moreish, butter rich recipes. All our ice cream is gluten free, suitable for vegetarians and free from eggs.
Today, we sell our ‘take home & enjoy’ tubs in shops & deli’s as well as through all the major regional supermarkets like Tesco’s. Our ice cream is available in 125ml individual tubs with ‘spoon in the lid’, 500ml, 1 & 2 litre tubs. Our ice cream cornets can also be enjoyed by children and adults alike ‘out and about’ at major shopping centres such as, The Trafford Centre, as well regional cafes, parks, shops and restaurants. We sell 4 and 10 litre catering sized packs for Scooping.
Over the years, we have noticed that our customers tastes have changed - ice cream sales are less dependent upon hot weather which is great news for us!
People have always liked to enjoy our ice cream on impulse, shopping or in the park, but more customers than ever seem to enjoy sharing our ice cream with friends and family at home.
Furthermore, our customers have become much more discerning and sophisticated. In a survey last year, our customers asked us for a range of ‘grown up’ adult flavours, they could enjoy year-round and not just during the summer months.
In response to our customers preferences, in September 2008, we launched our new Luxury Platinum Collection introducing 7 new indulgent flavours at The Trafford Centre.
This range proved to be so popular that we developed our Platinum Collection 500ml ‘take home’ tub, so that our customers can enjoy & share our sophisticated ice cream at home.
In February 2009, we will unveil our ‘new look’ Classic Collection packaging with new logo. We are a proud local producer and our new packaging reflects our heritage, which firmly roots us in Derbyshire and Sheffield. Can you guess the locations of the images?
We were delighted to receive our Diploma from the Ice Cream Alliance. Jane was also invited to become a judge at the Ice Cream Alliance.
Over the years we are proud to have scooped many presitigious awards for our ice cream including, Gold, Silver & Bronze Awards, from various competitions at local farming events, including the Bakewell Show.
Most recently we are thrilled to have been awarded BRC Accreditation – the benchmark for best practice in the food industry.
