Morelli’s Ice Cream Feels the Love at National Industry Awards

Northern Ireland’s famous family–owned ice cream brand, Morelli’s, has been named the best in the UK and Ireland at the 2019 Ice Cream Awards that took place recrntly in Harrogate, Yorkshire.  

The National Champion award is the most prestigious in the country. It is judged by industry peers and is awarded by the Ice Cream Alliance, the official trade body for the UK’s £1 billion ice cream industry.

Morelli’s won the coveted title for its Double Cream Vanilla ice cream alongside Gold awards for the same flavour in the Open Class and Best of the Best categories, as well as scooping Gold for its Strawberry ice cream.

These wins follow on from Morelli’s success at the 2018 Ice Cream Awards where the team received five accolades including Double Cream Vanilla being crowned the best vanilla ice cream in the UK and Ireland.

The awards were collected by Arnaldo Morelli, who heads up the family business from its headquarters on the North Coast, alongside his brother Marino, sisters Daniela and Tania, Production Manager, Eddie Johnston and Research & Development assistant, Christine Dixon.

Dedicating the wins to his late father, Guido, Arnaldo said: “Papa Guido will be smiling with pride tonight. As a family, he taught us everything we know about ice cream and it’s fantastic to gain national recognition for the team’s hard work, passion and dedication to creating the best ice cream in the UK and Ireland.”

“It doesn’t get any better than bringing trophies back to Northern Ireland and we look forward to celebrating with our ever loyal staff, suppliers and customers when we get home.

ICA President and Head Judge, Henry Nurkowski said:  “Morelli’s Ice Cream was outstanding. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication by the family to produce a top quality product from the best available ingredients and to do it consistently. The Morelli family thoroughly deserves this award”.

The Morelli family has been making ice cream since 1911. They operate a number of family–owned retail outlets across Northern Ireland and several franchised units.
