Callestick Farm Ice Cream has won a new contract with Marks & Spencer’s.

“In all my years of Callestick Farm Ice Cream, this is by far the most challenging but also the most exciting leap the business has taken,”  said MD and owner, Sebastian Parker.

The Parker family have been making ice cream at Callestick, near Truro, since 1989 when the introduction of milk quotas meant an alternative source of income was needed to keep the farm going. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength with the business and team growing over the past 33 years.

Operations director, Ben Parker, who has overseen the development, said: “We couldn’t believe it when the contract was confirmed, we knew this was going to change the business over night and drive us forward. I am looking forward to what the future holds.”

To meet the demands of the new contract, Callestick has increased the factory size by 60% and installed a new spiral freezer.

“We couldn’t have got where we are today without our longstanding and loyal customer support which is much appreciated” added sales director David Jeffs. “It’s a win-win going forward with the new development to the factory and production line, we will now be able to offer an even better product with a more extensive range of flavours.

“This is something the family and team deserve and I am so pleased to have been a part of it.”
