Ingredients supplier Henley Bridge has announced the launch of its new ice cream product.
Jersey Dairy UHT Chocolate Soft Serve is the first of its kind in the UK and was created as the result of a unique collaboration.
Soft serve ice cream is experiencing substantial growth in the UK, having enjoyed huge success in Europe as well as in the US, for many years. Easy to make and extremely versatile, its high profit margin has proved it to be a winner in a wide variety of foodservice venues.
Henley Bridge’s ice cream and gelato technician Steve Carrigan developed the coveted chocolate recipe using Jersey Dairy’s original Vanilla Luxury Softmix combined with a secret blend of Belcolade cocoa mass and deZaan cocoa powder (which are both part of the Henley Bridge stable).
He explains: “As the UK’s leading independent chocolate supplier, we were in the best position to help Jersey Dairy develop this product, and the results are absolutely stunning.
“The brief was to produce a premium, easy-to-use product – and you need premium ingredients in order to achieve that. I’ve worked with the Belcolade cocoa mass and deZaan cocoa powder for some time now, and both are absolutely fantastic products.
“The quality and provenance of Jersey cream and milk speaks for itself. With a much higher butterfat content than other milks, the resulting ice cream is smooth, rich and satisfying.
“With no mixing or measuring required, Jersey Dairy UHT Chocolate Soft Serve could not be easier to use.”
David Ashton, Jersey Dairy UK Sales Manager, added: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Henley Bridge to launch this exciting new product. Their supreme quality cocoa is a good match for our luxury mix, and adds the right amount of chocolatey richness to create the crème de la crème of chocolate ice creams.”
Jersey Dairy UHT Chocolate Soft Serve is available in a 1 litre tetrapak exclusively from Henley Bridge (www.hbingredients.co.uk).
