Phew what a year 2016 was, those that follow us on Social Media will know that we won a huge number of great things last year, Micro Business of the Year for Taunton Deane, Best Food Product in Somerset, Great Taste Award Gold Stars for a number of our flavours and we were even finalists in the Made In The South West Awards alongside such giants as Thatcher's Cider, Burt's Crisps and St Austell Brewery so we felt every bit the winner to be included with such amazing South West Companies. So as you can see we are delighted in the way we are growing and it's a massive thanks to you!
What the Great Taste Award Judges said
"We like this very much - excellent, smooth, creamy, well made ice cream, well stabilised and with a fabulous chuckleberry flavour - we got both blackcurrant and gooseberry. Lovely ice cream."
"A stunning colour, a very rich cream and a good egg note which leaves a creme anglaise flavour on the palate. The fruit is very tart and this adds a very good dimension - lifting the ice cream to another level."
Granny Gothards are delighted to be a finalist in the Taunton Deane Business Awards. We presented our business to the judges Monday 9th May and the final winner will be announced on the 17th May so watch this space and thank you all for your best wishes.
Granny Gothards makes premium ice cream from its headquarters on a farm on the Somerset Levels. It's a relatively small outfit, with under £1m of turnover, but recently grabbed an opportunity to export to the United Arab Emirates and hasn't looked back. It now has designs on markets in the Far East, including China. Here founder Amanda Stansfield shares her thoughts on building an export business.

Well I really cannot believe we are nearly at the end of 2015, I know everyone says it ........... But where has that year gone!
What a great year we have had at the Ice Pod, it has been filled with more highs than lows and the atmosphere, as always has been filled with excitement and smiles as befitting an ice cream parlour!
"Hi Amanda, I just wanted to say thank you for bringing the order up to Bristol. And more importantly how AMAZING the ice cream is! We had a taste of the Clotted Cream and Passion Fruit last night - my daughter is a chocolate addict and usually turns down flat anything that isn't chocolate but it put a big smile of pure pleasure on her face. Really, really excellent - I'm not sure anything will ever taste as good in comparison!
I'll certainly mention Granny Gothard's as a superluxe option to any prospective brides for next year."
