As a family company, with the heritage of four generations of making ice cream cones, we are passionate about ice cream excellence. With over 100 years in the business, we are now the only UK manufacturer of all types of ice cream cone, as well as the sole UK distributor for Italian company MEC3 (who make world-leading flavours and ingredients). This makes Antonelli unique in the industry. As pioneers in the UK ice cream market, the Antonelli name is well known and respected amongst wholesalers, ice cream manufacturers and parlour owners alike. Twice our company has been approached by the BBC resulting in our factory featuring on the Great British Bake Off as well as the Cbeebies programme ‘Do You Know?’
With our personal approach to our customers, backed up by our bespoke ice cream training facility – the Antonelli Gelato Academy is the only one of its kind in the UK for ice cream training. As a company, we are dedicated to supporting our customers across the UK which is why we have a full time National Technical Manager to answer your technical questions as well as provide training at the Academy as well as on your premises if required.
“All the courses I have attended have been brilliant; the team at Antonelli is so passionate about making gelato. It is worth taking a course for someone in the business who wants to step up.” Sam, Leicestershire
