North Yorkshire’s Brymor Ice Cream has made a further six-figure investment in its production plant, installing a new pasteuriser to further boost its efficiency. The move comes just months after investing to double its annual manufacturing capacity to over 1 million litres.

The £100,000 self-funded investment sees the installation of plant which is up to 50% more efficient than the outgoing model, saving working hours and energy, further complemented by the solar panel installation last year.

The company said these investments will help Brymor to significantly reduce its carbon footprint as it works towards net zero.

Sales manager, Heather Wilson said: “Our commitment to continuous innovation and ongoing investment enables us to remain at the forefront of ice cream manufacturing, while also staying true to our heritage.

“This is the latest stage in significant investment across the business, both in production and in the parlour – including the recent addition of a dog exercise area, bringing the cows back for visitors to see, and we have some exciting plans for the coming months.”

Producing potentially up to 1million litres of ice cream each year, Brymor welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to its site but is also stocked in Booths, Waitrose and by independent retailers, pubs and restaurants.
