Cotteswold Dairy has been a family- owned independent dairy since 1938. Working with local farmers, within a 30 mile radius of the dairy, means that they are able to supply the highest quality milk, cream and other dairy produce direct to your door and to wholesalers and retailers across their vast distribution area. This 3rd generation family-owned dairy was awarded the accolade of Family Business of the Year at the 2014 Cotswold Life Family Business Awards. (Stand B5).
Started in 2009 Gino is an award winning product and brand. Their gelato is made with 100% natural ingredients and 100% fresh milk, and is free of additives, colourings, preservatives and flavourings. They have been successfully supplying some of the finest restaurants and venues in London and have decided it’s time for a much wider audience to enjoy their gelato. They are therefore introducing a new 500ml tub retail product range. They are also proud to have been recently certified by SALSA having passed their audit with flying colors. (Stand E12).
