Loseley, the maker of luxury farmhouse ice cream, has developed a delicious
new Eton Mess flavour by feeding its herd of Jersey cattle a diet of
strawberries and meringues.
The cattle which are housed at the Beechdean Dairies farm in
Buckinghamshire, have been enjoying the ingredients found in the much loved
dessert for over a year to ensure their milk supply is infused with the
sweet flavours of the unusual treats, this has meant air freighting huge
quantities of strawberries to ensure a supply through all seasons.
Andrew Howard Managing Director of Beechdean Dairies adds: “We have been
perfecting the quantities in the cattle feed for over 18 months to perfect
the Eton Mess flavour. The cows need to be fed just the right quantities of
meringues, strawberries, fat and hay to make the perfect Eton Mess ice
cream. We believe ice cream should be great quality, tasty and interesting.
Our products will always deliver against these criteria.”
“Loseley’s flavour development process is cutting edge – I have tasted the
product and it is delicious” said Vince Bamford, FMCG Editor at The Grocer,
the UK’s leading grocery trade magazine. “It is an exciting innovation for
the ice cream category.”
