71st Ice Cream Course 7th-9th/10th January 2020

The Ice Cream sector in the UK has been transformed in recent years by the development of new and innovative product lines and the growth of new businesses. Today, sales of luxury ice creams that were at very low levels until the early 1990s now represent the fastest growing sector of the ice cream market.

The three-day course consists of both theory and practical sessions. Delegates will get a good understanding of the issues involved in making ice cream and frozen desserts, plus valuable hands-on experience of manufacturing techniques using the extensive pilot plant facilities within the Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences. Equipment is available for both batch and continuous ice cream making. A fourth day can be booked to allow delgates work on their own forumlation.
