Icefresh Foods was founded in 1983 by the late Doug Seybold and Mike Bowen. Frozen products have always been our heartland, and continue to be so to this day. We have unrivalled access to some of the best frozen dessert and ice cream suppliers across Europe, through long-term close collaboration.
1983 – 1992
From modest beginnings, Icefresh Foods steadily grew from two employees to ten and traded in frozen main stream vegetables, exotic fruit and ice lollies.
1993 – 2001
Frozen patisseries were added to the growing portfolio when Icefresh Foods started working with Poppies International in the UK. This quickly followed with further dessert specialists Quality Pastries and Dessert Factory.
2002 – 2006
Icefresh Foods began to focus solely on Frozen Desserts, Ice Cream and Ice Lollies and commence working with BeNeLux suppliers Jacques Ice, Glacio, BIG and Ijsboerke.
After years of close collaboration with Icefresh Foods, we become part of the Poppies group.
2006 – 2011
Our first foray into Licensing sees us acquire the license for Weight Watchers and produce the No.1 low calorie ice cream brand in the UK. Peppa Pig Ice Cream lollies follow and Icefresh Foods is now an established branded supplier. We start working with Incom D.O.O., a leading Slovenian Ice Cream manufacturer and Cermat, the largest Ice Cream manufacturer in Macedonia.
2011 – 2018
Icefresh Foods starts to increase the licensed portfolio with the acquisition of Hello Kitty, Thomas the Tank Engine, Despicable Me/Minions, Lucas Films/Star Wars, Disney and Thornton’s.
The hard work starts to pay off with a number of Industry Awards, 2 x Licensing Awards for Star Wars Light Saber Lollies and Despicable Me Ice Cream Lollies, 4 x Quality Food Awards for Macarons, Melting Puddings. Croquembouches and 3 x BFFF Awards
Factory acquisitions by the Poppies Group now gives Icefresh Foods the ability to supply chilled desserts
We proudly continue our long term relationship with the factories we represent. We have exclusive access to over 20 production sites, and unrivalled capabilities in sourcing award winning frozen desserts and ice cream.
