Hatsun Agro Yellow label for ice creams at school canteens: FSSAI CMD bestowed


authority under the provisions of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. “At the heart of these regulations is a central idea to make it clear what is healthy for children and what is not,� said FSSAI Chief Executive Officer Pawan Aggarwal.

ood Safety and Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) has kept the ice cream and frozen desserts in category of yellow labeled food to be sold in school canteens. FSSAI has sought ‘suggestions from stakeholders’ on proposed rules that will require school administrations to ensure their canteens operate through licenses and adhere to a colour-coded scheme and curb sales of high fat, sugar and salt food. Named Food Safety and Standards (Safe and Wholesome Food for School Children) Regulations, 2018, the proposal seeks to prescribe standards for food items sold or supplied in school mess, kitchens and eateries run by food business operators or even vending machines. While green will mostly comprise of fresh food, yellow will imply packaged food and red colour will mean food items high in salt, sugar and fat. The draft rules suggest that food and beverages categorized as green or yellow should be largely be on school menus and items labelled as red, with high fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) content will be discouraged from being sold or provided inside

“We have based the proposed norms on science and highest standards of nutritional requirements for kids as laid down by the National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad,� another FSSAI official said. school campuses. The proposals also say that a balanced diet for school-goers is one that “should provide about 50-60 per cent of the total calories from carbohydrates (preferably from complex carbohydrates), about 10-15 per cent from proteins and 20-30 per cent from both visible and invisible fat. “In addition, it should provide such non-nutrients as dietary fibre and antioxidants, which bestow positive health benefits,� reads the draft. The draft regulation also says that the school authority selling or catering school meals must obtain a license or be registered as a food business operator (FBO) from the concerned licensing

Follow us on:

The proposed regulations have come in the wake of a Delhi High Court directive given to the FSSAI few years back. The proposed norms also suggest that no person offers, or exposes for sale, HFSS foods to school children in school canteens, mess premises or hostel kitchens. State food authorities will also be required ensure that no person offers, or expose for sale, HFSS foods to school children within 50m of school premises. Food businesses manufacturing HFSS food products will also be barred from advertising such foods to children in school premises.

Now enjoy ice-cream made from coconut the white delicacy was labelled dairy-free ice cream was made from coconut milk. “We have been working on the process from last September. We first introduced it in November at the World Food India, New Delhi.


ith many new innovations and trends being observed in ice cream industry, manufacturers offer various innovative products for ice-cream lovers. After numerous research and findings, it is indeed amazing to know that ice-cream can be made from coconut as well. A coconut farmer from Coimbatore was surprised to know that the ice cream he was consuming was made from coconut. “This is better than the normal ice creams I have had.” He could not believe that the ice cream was made from coconut till he got a mild savor. The coconut ice cream looked as good as any other, was an instant hit among the visitors at the Coconut Festival 2018. This is an event to promote coconut products that took place on 27-28 January in Coimbatore. Indian Institute of Food Processing Technology, Thanjavur is the place where the process was developed. Director, C Anandharamakrishnan said

The ice cream contains no dairy products. We added omega 3 fatty acids extracted from a vegetarian source to make it. It has proteins and is low on carbohydrates.” The ice cream is being introduced for the first time in Tamil Nadu. Currently, it comes in a normal waffle cone, but the institute is working on making cones from jack fruit waste, said researchers at the institute. The ice cream has health benefits. The institute is also working on other food products from coconut. Anandharamakrishnan said the institute has also developed a process to make coconut chips. When we dry coconut for making chips, we add beta carotene (vitamin A) in it. The demand for coconut chips is increasing worldwide. It might soon replace potato chips. We are planning to transfer the technology to farmers from September. With the state’s support, we are also planning to set up two incubation centres, one in Thanjavur and one in Coimbatore.”

Lotte Confectionery hoping for 5 % contribution from India kets, we zeroed in on Havmor.” The deal values HIL at more than 2.5 times its 2016-17 turnover of Rs 400 crore and enables Lotte to have an operational capacity of 3 lakh litres of ice cream in India. Lotte is exploring the possibility to export Havmor to South East Asia, Africa and Middle Eastern markets.


outh Korean company Lotte Confectionery Co Ltd, made India its global hub for Lotte Choco Pie and now hopes that India contribute 5 per cent to its global revenues from current 2 per cent by the end of this decade following acquisition of Havmor Ice Cream Ltd. and introduction of India-specific products for the mass market. President of Lotte Confectionery Co Ltd, Yong su Kim stated that Choco Pie was built in India. Lotte invested in brand promotion and building equity for itself over 10 years, grabbing 95 per cent market share. Kim said, “However, this was not enough for us as we have invested $200 mn in India on Lotte Choco Pie. With Havmor, we expect to expand our India footprint with a new product. We see a huge consumer base in India’s 1.3 bn people and hope to see India contribute 5% to our global revenues by 2020. Since we offer 100% pure ice creams in other mar-

HIL would eventually be renamed, while Lotte would eventually introduce its sorbets from South Korean and Japanese markets to the Indian consumer, and by 2025 the company should have 15-20 per cent market share in the organised ice cream market currently pegged at Rs 5000 cr. Havmor has 10 per cent market share currently. Founded by Satish Chandra Chona in Karachi in 1944, Havmor had to wind up and cross the border within three years following the partition. Chona moved to Ahmedabad and started Havmor in 1951.

Ice cream brand Creambell launches Cornetto Oreo, new frozen plant in Asansol, West Bengal dessert cone for ice cream lovers!


or those who love OREO and want it included in every other dessert dish have now got a reason to rejoice. For such Oreo-obsessed customers, FMCG major Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) and popular chocolate manufacturer Mondelez India collaborated to introduce Cornetto Oreo in frozen dessert cone category in India.

hanshu Nagpal said, “Cornetto too, with its smooth creamy texture, crispy wafer cone all the way to the chocolatey tip has garnered tremendous consumer love over the years. We believe in bringing delicious moments of joy to our consumers and the Cornetto-Oreo partnership will be an exciting one.”

Cornetto is one the world’s leading ice cream brands owned by Unilever that was launched in 1960 in Italy. Cornetto is an ice cream brand owned by HUL step down firm Kwality Walls, while Oreo is a premium cookie brand owned by Mondelez India, the maker of popular chocolates like Dairy Milk, 5 Star and Gems. Cornetto Oreo range is available across all stores at the price of Rs 60. Oreo was introduced by Mondelez India six years back and in such a short span, India has emerged among its top-five markets by volume. Mondelez India Head, Biscuits Category, Sud-

Himanshu Kanwar, GM at Kwality Walls at HUL said “as a brand it is our continued effort to innovate and create products that consumers love. Through this launch, we wish to give romance and love a new expression.” Mondelez India Foods (formerly Cadbury India) is a part of global confectionery major Mondelez International. Besides chocolates, its portfolio consists of beverage brand as Tang and Bournvita. It also has Halls and Choclairs Gold under its candy portfolio.


ne of the popular ice-cream brands in India, Creambell, headquartered in Delhi plans to venture in the East with a plant in Asansol. The company is known to make innovative flavours such as Mishti doi with Alfonso, Mishti doi in rabdi and caramel flavours and blueberry doi. CEO of Devyani Food Industries, owner of Creambell brand, Nitin Arora said “We have launched our Asansol plant last month which will be producing both dairy products and ice-cream and intend to make it our fulcrum. We have till now mainly been in the ice-cream business and this is our first milk plant in India.” Being Rs 12,000-crore ice-cream market, with just 45 per cent in the organised sector, Creambell captures 4 per cent share of this market whereas Amul has a 13 per cent share. The ice cream industry is witnessing growth despite a slowdown in overall GDP growth in the country, due to demonetization and other factors. Arora said the firm had invested Rs 150 crore in the first phase of Asansol plant and has plans to

invest more to upgrade their position in eastern India from ‘number two or three to number 1’. “We will be using the plant to sell ice-cream and frozen food products in Bengal, Jharkhand, Orissa and the Northeast but the dairy plant which will produce milk and plain curd besides the more exotic flavours will feed the catchment area of around Asansol, Dhanbad and other 15 satellite towns. We feel there is huge scope for growth in eastern India. Asansol was the obvious choice as it not only capable of servicing Calcutta but a chain of cities in the steel and coal belt.”

IceKraft enters Chennai market


ceKraft, a popular ice cream product has entered the South Indian market. Now people in Chennai will enjoy several products of the Icekraft brand. The concept of Icekraft came in when a food-loving entrepreneur visualized the idea of opening a dessert joint with a twist.

Following ‘Good and Green’ philosophy, Godrej is committed to provide best-in-class products


ce Cream Times got in touch with Rajinder Koul, Sr.GM and Product Head – Chest Freezer, Godrej who exclusively shared details on deep freezers and how the company is working to make all their products environment-friendly. To begin with, Godrej Appliances is one of the largest players in the Home Appliances space in India and has always delighted consumers with relevant technology across a wide range of products. In 1958, Godrej was the first Indian company to manufacture refrigerators and has now become synonymous with the category. Since launch of first Indian refrigerator, Godrej has been the undisputed leader in the cooling space. It is a brand that has now become synonymous with the category. Godrej Chest freezer/Cooler convert operates both as a freezer (-ve temperature) and as a cooler (+ve temperature). The temperature range is ≤-20 to +8 0C. The product range is 100L, 200L, 300L & 400L in Single Door and 300L, 400L & 500L in Double Door. Glass Top freezers come with a premium display which is an ideal product for a retailer. These freezers come with tall body design to minimize footprint of the product, thus maximizing the store space utilization. The product range is 200L, 300L & 400L. The compressors used in chest freezers are high capacity tropicalized compressor ensuring the product’s performance at an extreme temperature of 430C.

Q) Kindly specify the types and number of freezers that you supply to the food industry, including ice cream industry as well. We have hard-top range for all the litres from 100 to 400 l, then we have the glass range with a glasstop (sliding) for 200, 300 and 400 l. The temperature zones for both ice cream and frozen food is similar, hence the two categories can make use of these products. Q) World has made great advancements in technology. Where does India stand in terms of technological use in the ice cream industry? We use different technology which other companies are not using. We use R290 technology which is the similar kind of green technology used in our ACs as we are already in that business line. We are gaining huge efficiency in terms of power; since our power consumption is 30-40 per cent lower than the other brands. Hence that’s the superior technology we are using. Q) Why are display freezers an integral aspect of freezers? As a brand, Godrej has always been associated with cooling since decades; hence it goes very strongly with our brand position in the marketplace. Q) Specify on the company’s achievements in recent years. In recognition for our efforts, the brand has been conferred with many prestigious awards and honors such as the Asia’s Most Promising Brand Award (2016, 15), Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand- Gold (2016, 15, 13, 12, 10, 09, 08, 07, 06), Business Superbrand (2016, 11, 10,08), ET Promising Brand

(2015)& Best Corporate Brands (2016); India Design Mark award for Green Balance ACs, Glitz Washing Machines and Edge Digi Refrigerator (2015,14,13), National Energy Conservation Award by Govt. of India, Ministry of Power, BEE (2016, 15 14, 09).Godrej’s focus to balance consumer needs with the environmental cause has enabled the organization to redefine the technology landscape in appliances industry to the delight of both consumer and environment. Q) What are your latest innovations for the industry? Could you please share your future plans? We are seriously looking at this category because we know the retail market will grow up. The ice cream consumption will increase, cones and food consumption will rise, demand of freezers will automatically increase. The growth pattern will be much higher as compared to the current rate. As mentioned earlier, we are already into R290 technology, apart from that we have de-cool technology because of which we have a better efficiency and cool-down that helps in faster cooling and at the same time, running cost is much lower. Godrej Chest freezers come with D-Cool Technology to attain quick freezing and maximum efficiency, and it provides 5-year warranty on

compressor (highest in the industry). The Refrigerant used in Godrej Chest freezers is 100 per cent environment-friendly thus saves up to Rs.5000 annually on your electricity bill. To avoid rodents causing damage to the products, we have a sheet of galvanized iron sheet with zinc coating avoiding rodents. Based on consumer insights and domain expertise, Godrej is proud to present yet another revolution in cooling- the new Godrej Chest Freezer/Cooler Convert with Maximum Cooling and Maximum Power Saving. These come with features that deliver the best-in-class performance, while being 100 per cent green and environment-friendly. Q) What are your views on 18 per cent GST tax slab placed on ice cream? If the ice cream industry has felt the GST impact have been affected by it, then eventually the cold chain sector will also feel the pinch.

Phase change materials: An add-on for ice cream transportation


ce creams are a thing of huge craving for the entire human population. As a matter-of-fact, ice cream industry is one of the highest profit making industries in the world. The appeal for any brand or flavor of ice cream depends a lot on its taste as well as texture. These prerequisites are majorly driven by storage conditions, i.e. the storage temperature and storage material. Most popular ice creams in the market have a smooth and creamy appearance. This creamy appearance is mainly attributed to a uniform crystal size of the ice cream. It is desired to produce and sustain ice creams with small crystal size in order to maintain its taste, texture and shelf life. To achieve the same, perpetuation in temperature is of utmost importance. Inability to do so will steer to recrystallization phenomenon resulting in an ice cream with larger crystal size distributions and eventually a rough texture and shorter shelf life.

Figure 1: what we expect and what we get.

perature by utilizing their high latent heats. It also acts as an insulation preventing the penetration of heat into the ice cream.

Figure 2: PCM incorporated carrier boxes for ice cream storage

Pecrystallization can be suppressed by maintaining the temperature of ice creams in desirable range by employing materials which possess high thermal inertia. One of the most promising ways to achieve this is by the use of Phase Change Materials (PCMs). Phase Change Materials, by the virtue of low thermal diffusivity and high heat absorption capacity, ensures that the temperature fluctuations are minimal. Conventional storage/ transportation systems use on-off control, due to which the temperature fluctuations are high in the order of 3-80C. This drawback is almost nullified by the use of PCMs, which narrow down the temperature fluctuations. There are also ice cream carrier boxes, which use PCMs for maintaining ice creams in their desired temperature range. PCMs, which once frozen and placed in the box will provide the desired backup time thus reducing the electricity consumption in comparison to refrigerated trucks or vans. PCMs have the ability to maintain tem-


is maintained below -20 C for about 10 hours. The ice cream temperature is stabilized at around 22. 0 C for maximum of the time which is due to the incorporation of PCM into the insulated box. Ice cream industries, as well as many logistics companies are on the lookout for a reliable and safe way of improving their storage/ transportation facilities. In the wake of this, PCMs offer one of the cheapest, efficient and sustainable pathways through which it can be accomplished. Many ice cream companies, in collaboration with PCM making industries have already started making an attempt in incorporating PCM technology into their line of operation. With the advent of time, it is forecasted that PCMs will play a very crucial role in cold chain industries.

Combined Thermal Conduction and Convective heat transfer are the dominant phenomena which drive the heat transfer mechanism in this system. As a result of this, the outer layer of the surface of ice-cream remains hard which ensures its good texture, taste and quality. It is suggested that the suitable temperature for maintaining this texture is about -20 0C. PCMs having melting/freezing points in the range of Figure 3: Thermal behaviour of ice cream in the experiment -23 to -28 0C are found to be suitable for this system to work in an effective manner. Encapsulation for containing the PCM is selected based on many considerations viz. technical, economic and environmental.An experiment was carried out using insulated boxes carrying -260 C PCM encapsulated in HDPE thermotabs, the thermal behavior of which is depicted in the graph below. From Figure 3, it is clearly seen that the temperature of ice cream

ance with a time-tested business processes across their 16 plants. It has gained popularity over the years in the market. Chandramogan was the first individual from private sector dairy to receive this honour. The award was given at 46th Dairy Industry Conference held in Kochi. The tribute is annually presented to a person with outstanding academic or professional achievements in dairy science and technology. On this accomplishment, he said this award was a testament to the achievements of the organization in terms of excellence in quality, innovation and commitment to enrich lives of farmers and consumers. “We are glad that our efforts including the back end support services to farmers are recognized at national level.” Chandramogan is the person behind the successful growth of Hatsun Agro Product (HAP), as it has gained popularity in different regions of Chennai and other parts of India. Since its inception, the company has grown to reach the pinnacles of success thereby making it a national name in the country.Creating headlines time and again,HAP is a true testimonial which hit the right chords at the right time.Chandramogan built Rs 8,000-crore business with merely Rs 13,000 in his pocket under the brand Arun Ice Creams. The company can proudly claim to be known as the largest private dairy in India. He started to chase his dreams when he was 21-years old. He had to drop out from school because of financial constraints, and the journey towards building this brand had a humble start. In 1970, he rented out a 250-sqft space in Royapuram with three employees. The first 10 years of starting up meant exploring conventional spaces of reaching out to possible customers. Continuing their success story, the company has joined hands with international firm to enhance their production capacity of the products. Hatsun Agro - an ice-cream and dairy products giant player in southern India will soon use a rather unusual production input: steam for the manufacture of ice-creams. Germany-based company called Protarget has put up a parabolic trough system next to

Hatsun’s ice-cream factory near Salem, in western Tamil Nadu. This which will produce 400 kg of steam an hour using sun’s heat. The steam is piped to the ice-cream plant where it is used for pasteurising milk.Hatsun-Protarget deal is different because the steam is made with solar energy.

Ice-cream sales to witness significant growth in next 5 years


new Research report estimates that the global ice cream market will touch $78.8 billion by 2025. The global market size was valued at $54.8 billion in 2016. Back then, California was the leading ice cream-producing state in the U.S and produced about 118 thousand gallons of ice cream. Ice-cream sales indicate significant growth in the next seven years. The ice cream market is divided into impulse, artisanal and take-home categories. Impulse products include cones, sandwiches, and ice cream bars that grab the largest share in the market. Artisanal products are a smaller share of the market, but marginal growth is anticipated with the rising demand for hand-made products comprised of high-quality ingredients. Advances made in packaging providing better convenience are driving demand for take-home products. Demand from North America, Europe and other developed regions for premium products is one of the major driving factors behind the anticipat-

ed growth. Expansion of the ice cream market is also anticipated in developing areas such as Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. The Asia Pacific was the largest market share in 2016 and is also poised for continued growth. China and India are also expected to boost sales due to the larger consumer base in those countries. China became the largest market in 2014, surpassing the U.S., as consumers in China increasingly saw ice cream as a snack. It is no longer considered as dessert but is consumed as snacks and merging it in various food items thereby giving it a unique taste. Thereafter, it becomes a popular dish like waffles ice-cream, etc. Many producers are also developing new flavors to introduce to consumers, which is expected to contribute to the growth of the overall market by increasing sales. Demand is also pushing for premium products in the marketplace as sales of lower quality ice creams continue to decline.

Season Special

I ce Cream Times - March-April 2018

What’s new

A Supplement of Beverages & Food Processing Times



Times Vol. 5, Issue 04, March-April, 2018,


et another season is starting for the ice cream industry in India. From the last 5 years, this industry is growing between 15-20 per cent on an average. This is the only sector of Indian food processing industry after carbonated drinks sector which celebrates the summer. Being in Mumbai, mid-February witnessed 32+ temperatures and by February-end, the temperatures soared beyond 37 degree Celsius. By the time of publication of this issue, the temperatures will be even higher in Mumbai, Ahmedabad and other western Indian cities from there, the start of the season takes place, followed by South Indian and North Indian cities. Such high temperatures are an indication towards the sweltering summer season which is in the offing. It is even logical to say so since the sun will now travel northwestwards and cross the equator which will further heat up the conditions in Mumbai. 23rd Feb afternoon felt like summer, it was because the RealFeel temperature read 37 degrees Celsius. In Kolkata, the maximum temperature recorded on Friday was 33.8 degree Celsius, three notches above normal and the highest in the past 130 days since October 17, 2017, well before the start of winter. Bangalore-the Garden city is experiencing a rise in mercury level for the last one week. And it's going to get worse. Weathermen say the temperature is expected to gradually rise from now on and brace you for warmer months, from March to May. Hyderabad’s techy invented AC helmet for providing cool ride to the bikers but this coolness will not dent the sale of ice cream industry. Last year, Hyderabad broke all records of heat when it touched 47 degrees. For the ice cream manufacturers, period of Jan-Feb is the most active time because they prepare for the next season, plan for new launches, procurement of raw materials etc. Last year was one of the most active years of ice cream industry because it not only got maximum turnovers but also many unprecedented activities took place. First and foremost was AMUL-HUL tussle for ice cream and frozen dessert which dragged the issue till court of law in Mumbai. Second was acquisition of Havmor by Lotte of Korea which surprised one and all across the country not only because the good financial figures but also for interest shown a global company in Indian ice cream industry. Suddenly many of the ice cream manufacturers were planning somewhat similar moves changed their price tags. Lotte’s entry into this business has some indications for the ice cream industry, global companies are seeing Indian market with positivity. Also it’s an indication that competition is at the highest level and will not be the same as in previous years, giants like HUL, Vadilal, AMUL, CreamBell, Arun will have to change their strategies. On the other hand, year 2018 is also expected to be eventful for the ice cream industry. There will be some more acquisitions, mergers, funding in the ice cream sector of the country. Coming back to the seasonal talk, this year ice cream industry in almost every state of the country, in every major or smaller city brands are coming out with newer products. Some of them are even starting newer categories which they never tried before. During many of the product trial events, I personally witnessed that this year consumers will remember as one of the finest years in ice cream history. HUL is launching Ice Cream Sandwiches along with a couple of newer varieties of candies. The most recommended product which I liked was Cornetto Disc Oreo of Kwality Walls. Hangyo one of the fastest growing brands from south India launched Celebration Box right on their anniversary day on 14th February. The Box will carry ice creams of different kinds from seven different states in seven cups. The concept is new but the brains behind it Deepa and Pradeep are same and are very enthusiastic for their product. Apsara on the other part of the country is busy in introducing Tamarind and multilayer ice creams for their parlours. This brand has already made its name in the country in different states. Opening at least one parlour every month, Director of the group Kiran Shah updated. New flavours and new styles of serving ice creams is the talk of the town in the ice cream sector. Rollick from Kolkata and Ranchi are coming with Rose Malai candy and Dabba Malai MLT pack. Rollick is one of the most prominent eastern India brands led by some very enthusiastic youngsters like Guarav Khemani and Anisha Agarwal in Kolkata and Abhishek in Ranchi. The revolution of newer kind of products has not come in one day. The entire credit goes to the companies like HUL, Cream Bell, Havmor, Scoops, Arun that they believed in new thinking which led this industry to this level. Introduction of modern machinery by these companies and their suppliers has changed the mathematics of the industry forever. Today a manufacturer is certain about the production outcome as well as sales growth once he decides to launch some new products. We have wonderful technologies coming from Europe, China, UK and other parts of the world which are changing the scenario of Indian ice cream industry. Manufacturers are also sure about their success and consumers’ expectations are growing year on year. When all the components are proactively participating the results are bound to come positive. So let’s wait for just few more days and try a new ice cream every day for this entire season!

As summer approaches, several ice cream players have launched range of products to cater to the growing market demand


s Indians brace up for the summer season, the ice cream industry is all set to enthrall customers with their new products launches. The organized ice cream players are ready to sizzle this summer with something new on offer for its consumers. Manufacturers are introducing new variety of ice-creams to cater rising demand from the consumers. Many have already chalked out plans and strategies so as to make the best out of this season. Some few major names in the industry may increase prices by 5 per cent for this summer season because of rise in price of dry fruits, overhead costs and increase in fuel prices. But despite rise in prices, the Rs 8,000-crore organised ice cream industry expects annual sales to grow by 15-20 per cent. In the past few months, diesel prices have shot up by 23 per cent, salary and wages by 10 per cent and packaging material by 8-10 per cent, thereby ensuring a price hike in ice creams. Hence at this point of time, the objective is to keep price hike under 5 per cent in 2018. South Asia’s only newspaper covering ice-cream industry, “Ice Cream Times”, contacted several players about their preparations for this season. Hangyo Ice-cream Pvt. Ltd, Apsara Ice creams, Iceberg ice-creams, Rollicks ice-creams, Dolce Gelato (a brand owned by Modi Illva India Pvt. Ltd., JV between Modi Group of industries and Prodotti Stella) and Razzmatazz - Perina Ice Creams & Frozen Desserts discussed about their new product launch/innovations. What’s new in store? The ice-cream market is thriving with new flavours and blends for customers. The ice-cream has witnessed substantial evolution in the recent past. During the past decade, this category has grown with an array of innovations in ice-creams. Brands have taken to innovation as the new mantra to attract consumers offering unique taste variants as today patrons are willingly to pay a premium for a good treat. Another innovation is introduction of diet-friendly ice creams as part of brands’ premium range, such as low-fat and sugar-free ice cream, as well as ice cream cakes. With the growing consumer base, increasing disposable income, and greater trend toward eating-out, ice cream market is on the verge to incorporate bigger players and more innovative concepts. Hangyo is happy to introduce new product ‘Celebration box’ to mark the 15th anniversary of Hangyo on February 14, 2018. Pradeep Pai, Mangaing Director commented that Hangyo wishes to pay an ode to 7 States they are present in hence are introducing authentic flavours native to every State. The celebrations box will contain the ice creams from following states. 1. Karnataka - Mysore Pak: Witness rich taste of ghee infused fudge captures the quintessential taste of Karunadu in every bite.

2. Goa - Peanut Caramel: Crafted with secret recipe of Portuguese in Goa, hard-to-resist Peanut Caramel is an ode to Goa. 3. Kerala- Coconut Thunder: Allure your taste buds with Coconut Thunder from God’s own country-Kerala. Experience the whiff of nostalgia from land of coconuts. 4. Tamil Nadu - Filter Kaapi: Made from freshly brewed coffee beans, Filter Kaapi is an inspiration from Tamil Nadu. Experience the roast and grind tales in every bite of this flavour 5. Andhra Pradesh - Payasam: An authentic Payasam made with exotic dry fruits. An ode to Andhra Pradesh is a sweet celebration like a dollop of tradition. 6. Telangana- Qubani Ka Meetha: An old heart throb Qubani Ka Meetha- a royal indulgence from the bygone era of the Nizams of Hyderabad. This royal treat to taste buds is an ode to Telangana.

The celebration box will have limited production and has 7 cups of 125 ml and sold at Rs.200. Hangyo hopes to spread the good word and invite all its patrons to be a part of the grand celebration of sharing smiles. Kiran Shah, Director at Apsara said regarding new product launch that these days’ customers are always looking for something new and different. They are willing to experiment a lot more when it comes to trying out new things. “To keep these customers hooked, we have come up with innovative icecream flavours such as Pani Puri, Tamarind, multi-layered Kulfis. Of course, we also have our all time-favorite flavours such as Guava with masala, Belgian Bites and Roasted Almonde.” Dr. Suhas. B. Shetty CEO stated that ICEBERG always will be ahead and prepared for ice cream innovations. The season for sumptuous treat is every-day for ice-bergians. “This pristine season we are about to launch the most popular Thick shakes and Freak shakes in Iceberg.” Executive Director, Abhishek Modi said in this regard, Dolce Gelato is committed to offer innovative and new products. “We have introduced authentic Italian flavours in India which are our signature flavours. These flavours itself contribute almost 30 per cent in our overall revenue. We will continue to expand our product portfolio by adding some unique Italian temptations in the coming season too.” Perina Ice-creams & frozen desserts started in 1979 by Shailesh and Vishal’s father and uncle. That time these products dominated Nashik because pushcart was a new concept and the company had about 100 carts. As ‘PERINA ICE CREAMS’ became successful in years, Vishal and elder brother Shailesh completed graduation and thereafter started with a new plant in 2004. Then in 2007, NEW PERINA ice-creams changed their brand name with ‘RAZZMATAZZ’ opening a parlor in Nashik with 56 flavors apart from vanilla, butterscotch etc. Shailesh K Karamchandani – Production Manager commented that “for this season, we are coming up with a new plant in 1 acre with many more varieties lined up. We are the first ice cream manufacturer in Nashik, our customers have high hopes from us and are sentimentally attached with us from a long time. Hence it’s our priority to fulfill customers’ requirement. Our new plant will make way for further expansion as we look to bring in more products in next few years.” Rollick ice-creams

A stateof-the-art quality controlled laboratory, pure ingredients and carefully selected flavours are reasons of their successful growth. With network of over 250 distributors, the company is going ahead with launch of new products in the market. Abhishek Narsaria, Managing Director specified since real fruit frozen dessert market is an unexplored market in the eastern region. “We tend to come up with Real fruit real pulp ice creams like Mango, Litchi, Sitaphal, etc. Along with ice cream, a major area of concern has been the cone segment wherein we plan to come up with choco brownie cone and disc cone.” Companies’ investment for new products Any new project/launch by a company needs sufficient amount of investment to begin with. On probing, this publication learnt that all companies need adequate backing to push their new products in the market. Hangyo Ice Creams Pvt Ltd opened their doors to public in the year 2003. From then, there is no looking back. With humble beginnings in a small town in Karnataka, it has now grown into a 100 cr entity.

We plan to innovate at all levels, product, R&D, marketing testing etc. We plan to penetrate into new markets with innovative products while appealing to our core consumers through innovation.” Shah allocates a budget of 5-10 per cent from the annual turnover for marketing. The allocation depends on several factors including seasonality, launch of a new outlet and so on. Shetty devotes a sum of 35-40 lakhs for formulation and strategical marketing of new launches. Narsaria believes that marketing plays a major role in the success of any new product. “We being a company who strongly believes in the teachings of Philip Kotler intend to pump at least 5 per cent of the turnover in marketing of these products.” Modi said that owing to premium price positioning, the

standards deliver the best softy ice cream ever. The flavors are being curated specifically which goes well with these shakes. It will be an experience rather than a thirst quencher. Further he added, ‘Freak shakes’ are most happening and always on Instagram will be launched in this upcoming sea-

Ice Capsules Developed To Make Instant Ice Cream At Home to make their own ice cream at home, something fast that will reduce supply chain costs given that the on-site making of ice cream cuts the logistics costs of producing frozen ice cream.”

On a concluding note, Production Manager at Perina Ice Creams & Frozen Desserts, Shailesh K Karamchandani summed up the fiscal year as a year which was been full of ups and downs as ‘Demonitization and GST’ turned really twisted cash flow.

ow would you feel if you could make icecreams in your kitchens without chopping, mixing, unsightly and minimize the waiting hours? An Israeli startup has developed a capsule system that would make fresh ice cream in an instant with just the click of a button, more like a coffee machine.

Beth-Halachmi then developed a compact system for the instant production of fresh, home-made ice cream. He participated in MassChallenge, a global startup accelerator that offers up to $2 million in equity-free funding for high-impact startups each year, he already had a working prototype. Solo Gelato did not make it to the final round but caught the attention of Swiss-based chocolate company Barry Callebaut, which was also a founding member of MassChallenge’s Swiss branch in 2016 alongside Swiss food giant Nestlé and Givaudan, a Swiss manufacturer or flavors and fragrances.

Capsules come in 24 flavors are a little larger than coffee capsules are known as Solo Gelato’s. They cater to different tastes and offer a number of varieties including sugar-free, organic, and alcoholic options. Each capsule makes a single portion of ice cream. CEO Barak Beth-Halachmi said that Solo Gelato’s system is “like a coffee machine with a technology that freezes and expels air into the capsules, in just 60 seconds. Solo Gelato has two different types of capsules. Durables one for those who value convenience; they don’t need refrigeration and have a shelf life of about nine months, and fresh ones, for those who want freshness; those need refrigeration and will keep for about a month and a half.”

Solo Gelato and Barry Callebaut announced a partnership in 2017 to enable the Israeli startup to use the chocolate producer’s Chocogelato mixes in its capsules. The partnership saw the Solo Gelato team head to the Swiss company’s Chocolate Academy in Weize, Belgium to learn about chocolate making and other Barry Callebaut products, as well as train at the Milan Chocolate Academy for gelato making and product development. Barry Callebaut’s Head of Global Sourcing Massimo Selmo said that time, “MassChallenge not only gives us access to new product ideas and innovative solutions we might never be able to create inhouse. We get to know a talented pool of bright young people with an entrepreneurial spirit.”

An ice cream enthusiast with expertise in gelato-making possessing a background in high-tech founded Solo Gelato way back in 2013. “The idea came to me in 2011. I had a small ice cream factory, and I saw that there were a lot of issues for a small producer; all the costs and also sometimes the product was spoiled, so even more expenses. I told myself why not give people the opportunity

Beth-Halachmi described the collaboration as ‘one of the most helpful and fun parts’ of a long, hard journey. “Solo Gelato hopes to make its products available to customers via direct shipping as well as through online retailers like Amazon. It also aims to partner with big ice cream companies like Ben and Jerry’s, to make its capsules available in as many brands as possible,” said Beth-Halachmi.

ust imagine if ice-cream would be available in nutritious quantities which would push the product in healthy category. Ice cream is popular around the globe but is high in saturated fat linked to higher cholesterol, heart disease and strokes.

grateful for the invention. Currently saturated fats found in coconut and palm oil, have to be shipped from the tropics and the environmental harm of producing palm oil is well-known. She said “saturated vegetable fat is solid, so what I am trying to do is to make ice cream with liquid oil.

Producing the treat without unhealthy substance would be the biggest achievement for ice cream makers.

But it’s important that to create a structure in the ice cream, to stabilise the icecream, it is important that the lipid is solid and therefore we are structuring the liquid oil into solid fat by adding some structuring molecules.”

This could soon be a reality as a researcher at Copenhagen University is close to replacing saturated fat with unsaturated fat in this delicious frozen treat. But when researcher Merete Bogelund Munk’s perfects her newest creation, these health issues will no longer be associated with ice-cream. Munk stated that she wants to make ice-cream with unsaturated fat oil droplets, which are turned into solid fat by adding some structuring molecules - which is pretty amazing to watch. Once Munk is successful in switching out saturated fat in ice cream, then entire world will be

With Munk’s ice-cream, manufacturers would be able to choose oil grown locally, meaning more options for them and less harmful effects on the environment. Ice-cream you can eat guilt-free. Her research work has not gone unnoticed Munk’s experiments are being carried out in concurrence with AAK, an oil-producer major company based in Sweden once Munk’s technique is perfected and flavours have been added.

Elanpro Presents Ice Cream Display Cabinet

Combination of sweet and salt for Australian ice cream consumers over the past five years, despite increasing consumer health consciousness and the growing popularity of substitute snacks for health reasons. Ice-cream manufacturers have benefited from rising demand for premium products in recent times, a trend that will only continue to grow. Despite supermarkets and grocery stores being a strong source of sales, gelato and ice cream shops have benefited from positioning themselves at the premium end of the market. Operators that have been able to faithfully reproduce quality ice cream products from abroad have been particularly successful. These products are typically homemade and benefit from a high degree of perceived quality.


ell food fusion is a trend that has caught the attention of several chefs and manufacturers worldwide. The ice-cream industry has not shied away from combination of different elements. Arnotts and Peters Drumstick ice cream joined forces to create a sweet yet salty fusion, using Aussie snacking staple Jatz biscuits.

As a result, consumers have demonstrated a willingness to pay premium prices for these products, boosting revenue from these operators. Local gourmet products are making an increasingly large contribution to the industry.

Dubbed the Sweet & Salty Cracker Drumstick, the combo delivers a cracker flavoured ice cream encased in a waffle cone with golden syrup drizzled on top.

These local products benefit from the high perceived quality of the ‘made in Australia’ brand. Consumers are attracted by the delectable range of flavours, encouraging them to pay the premium price tag. The $4.20 Jatz Cracker fusion is available in selected supermarket shelves.

The collaboration follows the launch of Iced Vovo, Mint Slice, Wagon Wheels and Caramel Crowns, which all made it in to an ice cream tub in July last year. The Drumstick has been around since 1963, sold around 98 million cones in 2017 alone.


ith the aim of bringing creative proficiency to today’s frozen dessert industry operations, Elanpro, India’s leading commercial refrigeration company, added Elanpro Buffet Freezer (EFG 67BF) to its product offering.

The natural flavour called vanilla The vanilla harvest, its market fate and ice cream


anilla is frequently used to flavor ice cream. Vanilla ice cream, like other flavors of ice cream was originally created by cooling a mixture made of cream, sugar, and vanilla above a container of ice and salt. The type of vanilla used to flavor ice cream varies by location. In North America, consumers are interested in a more prominent, smoky flavor, while in France, they want a more anise-like flavor. To create the smooth consistency of ice cream, the mixture has to be stirred occasionally and then returned to the container of ice and salt to continue the solidification process. In today’s time, many people often consider vanilla to be the ‘default’ or ‘plain’ flavor of ice cream. But with so many other innovative flavors in the market, Vanilla seems to have become plain, conventional, unimaginative, for many! So spare a thought for vanilla ice-cream, under threat from kinky new flavours, and out of favour with consumers endlessly in thrall to ‘what’s new’. Why have plain, conventional Vanilla ice cream when one can have exotic and innovative flavors.

remained stubbornly conservative, dominated by chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. Now though, thanks to migration, long-haul travel, and the internet; consumers are becoming more adventurous and manufacturers are taking note. Parlours have sprung up across offering Persian-style saffron, orange blossom, and rosewater ice cream, sprinkled with nuts and drizzled with honey; and Indian-inspired fla-


such as masala pineapple.

chai and

According to market research, ice-cream sales in the EU and US are static; it’s in Asia that business is booming, so it is understandable that the flavours mentioned above are popular there.

And as more ice cream flavours are launched, the traditional vanilla is coming under threat. In addition, the price of Madagascan vanilla pods is set to increase in the wake of a cyclone earlier this year. With these developments, is vanilla set to lose out on ice cream’s $35bn growth worldwide over the next five years?

Global ice cream brands have spread their reach to almost every corner of the planet. But for many years, flavours from the big international brands

The main flavours offered by international brands have traditionally been vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. However, as globalization took ice

cream to every corner of the world, localised flavours is expanding outwards with migration, tourism, and global reach of the internet. The appeal of these new flavours, such as masala chai and kulfi from India; rosewater, orange blossom, and saffron from the Middle East; or red bean, sesame, and taro from China is set to spread as consum- ers embrace more innovative and far-flung taste experiences. The desire for novel products and new experiences motivated the consumption of around 25 per cent of ice cream worldwide in 2016, showing how the market is increasingly driven by people wanting to try something different, new, and interesting. Consumers also seek out authenticity when experimenting with new flavours, so it is likely that more brands will test out products that will appeal to more globalized palates, with different proportions of umami, sweet, sour, and bitter tastes. Ex-

amples could include chocolate miso, match tea, toasted coconut, lychee, cardamom, nutmeg, ginseng, or citrus flavours that are far more reliant upon East-Asian citrus fruit yuzu, which has already made inroads into the UK’s premium ice cream brands. Unilever’s Executive Vice-President of global ice cream Matt Close said he was absolutely convinced kulfi would work in the UK and would spread easily to the non-Indian population, who has a wide acceptance of Indian food already. Other examples of new experimental ice cream trends include rolled ice cream from Thailand, which involves pouring ice cream mixture onto a freezing metal plate and then rolling the frozen mixture like a piece of paper.

Do these new flavours seriously threaten vanilla’s status? Not according to the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA). According to an IDFA survey, the global top five flavours are vanilla, chocolate, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, and chocolate chip cookie dough. When asked about ingredients added to ice cream, the majority of those surveyed said that pecans are the most popular nut or nut flavouring, while strawberries are the most popular fruit added to their frozen treats. And the most daring and creative flavours, can be listed as Lemon Poppy seed Muffin, Black Sesame, and a bourbon / caffeine concoction called Exhausted Parent.


Vanilla’s continuing success is likely down to its staple, inoffensive nature, and its ability to complement other dishes, rather than dominate with a significant, innovative flavour. Vanilla has long been the best-selling ice cream flavour not only because it is creamy and delicious, but also because of its ability to enhance so many other desserts and treats. But why is the vanilla ice cream market going down and expensive; the answer lies within, the best natural Vanilla comes from Madagascar, east coast of Africa. The creamy and lustrous texture and flavor come only from the vanilla pod coming from the zone. Undoubted vanilla is now cultivated all over the world, In India, it is grown in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, North eastern states and Nicobar Islands. But authentic vanilla Ice cream manufacturers definitely swear on Madagascar Vanilla pod. The other side of the vanilla story But there is another side of this story, some experts believe that vanilla s not losing its customer rather the world is running low on Vanilla due to climate changes and theft. A combination of climate change, crime and market speculation has driven the price of vanilla to record highs, simultaneously damaging the quality of natural pods. Ahead of harvest season in the southern hemisphere, and summer in the northern hemisphere, the almost default ice cream flavor choice may not be as ubiquitous as usual. Vanilla is found in everything from ice cream to bourbon, but most of the world’s vanilla comes from one place, the island nation of Madagascar. This year, the island, located off the east coast of Africa, will produce 80 per cent of the world’s vanilla. As cultivating vanilla has grown more lucrative, India, Papua New Guinea and Uganda have planted more vanilla vines, with Indonesia the second largest vanilla producer. Madagascar’s dominance isn’t under threat yet—it could take five years for a new plantation to produce its first market-ready crop.

Yet, Madagascar’s vanilla production faces threats from within the island and far beyond its control. In March this year, Tropical Storm Enawo wreaked havoc in Madagascar, killing at least 78 people, displacing about 5,300 people and affecting nearly half a million people. The cyclone also damaged about 30% of island’s vanilla crop, which has already been affected by drought and desperate farming practices. The uncertainly over this year’s harvest, set to start in June, has sent vanilla prices soaring. Vanilla prices have nearly doubled in the last year, and quadrupled in the last four years. In 2014, a kilogram of vanilla sold for about $60 a kilogram (just over 35 ounces). This year, the cured beans, the


I ce Cream Times - March-April 2018 familiar darkened pod, are projected to sell at $400 to $450 per kilogram, a sharp increase from $225 to $240 per kilogram in 2016. Vanilla exports should have helped make island life better and alleviate a poverty rate of more than 77%. I n stead it has created a climate of fear and exploitation.The price increase has also attracted crime, with armed robbers ripping vines out of the ground. F a r m e r s forced to sleep in their fields to guard their produce make only a fraction of the spice’s export price, according to the watchdog. Desperation has driven farmers to pick immature green pods, which sell for about $80 a kilogram. Rather than 48 hours in a sweatbox and 90 minutes a day of sun-curing for two weeks and then aging in a wooden box for six months, the faster process relies on vacuum packing, which reduces the quality and yield of the sought-after mature beans. The Madagascan government has gone as far as a public bonfire of the premature pods. They’ve also created a “vanilla platform” to regulate growers, exporters and the state to ensure a better product. Still industry leaders are doubtful that consumers won’t simply succumb to synthetic vanilla flavors. Vanilla shortage could leave a bad taste in the mouth this summer, as food manufacturer’s grapple with rocketing vanilla prices that threat-

companies that use the ingredient in everything from soft drinks to cakes and perfume. But the pain will be felt most acutely by ice-cream makers, as it is the most expensive ingredient in the production process and some will be forced to pass on the increased cost to consumers.

judged to be about 2,000 tonnes, whereas in prematurely harvested pod was between 1,300 and 1,400 tonnes. The combination of high prices and poor quality means some manufacturers are turning to synthetic alternatives. But many food brands are not open to using artificial flavourings.

Vanilla is the second most expensive spice in the world, after saffron, a result of its long and labour-intensive cultivation.

Vanilla extract can be found all over the world but Madagascar vanilla has the greatest depth of flavour. Managing the price increase is a bit of a challenge for ice cream manufacturer but they haven’t changed supplier. If you are doing battle with giants like Unilever, you need a product that’s unbelievable. We will sell more.”

Vanilla is every ice-cream company’s biggest-selling product. You can bring out a niche flavour but vanilla will still be top. You’ve just got to take the hit on it because customers would notice the difference.”

Taste test: h i g h street ice cream Part of the orchid family, vanilla beans is hand-pollinated on family farms. Each flower opens for only one part of one day during the season – if it is not pollinated on that day, no pod is produced. Once picked, the curing process, which involves drying the beans in the sun by day and allowing them to sweat in a box at night, takes three to six months. The market price of vanilla has risen over the past 12 months and this has been driven largely by a poor quality harvest in Madagascar. The main producers of food grade vanilla – known as black vanilla because of the colour of the dried pods – are Madagascar, followed by Mexico and Tahiti. As with wine, chocolate and coffee, the vanilla from each country has its own distinctive characteristics but it is Madagascan vanilla that produces the creamy, sweet flavour beloved of vanilla Ice cream lovers. Soaring prices will hurt

When prices are high, market experts say, farmers are tempted to pick beans early. That leads to a less intense flavour, compounding problems in the market. The high-value crop is also a high value crop for criminals. Creators defend vanilla flavour made using synthetic biology There are reports that vanilla farmers in Madagascar harvested their crop prematurely, in fear of losing their production to thieves and this coupled with inadequate drying in order to increase profits from their crop has led to lower quality vanilla. A decent vanilla bean crop in Madagascar is

Ice Cream News

I ce Cream Times - March-April 2018 price increase is also due to volatility, labour shortage and the threat of Fusarium wilts — a common fungal disease — as the reasons to abstain from vanilla cultivation, for fear of a crop loss. Vanilla has a 3-year gestation period. And all these reasons have turned the farmers away from cultivating vanilla. Vanilla is a labour intensive crop and there is a requirement of manual or hand pollination for each flower. Vanilla is predominantly an export crop and its domestic usage is very minimal. The industry in India mainly uses synthetic vanilla and not the natural kind. That too is for applications in the food industry, cosmetics etc. Indian Vanilla Market High prices of vanilla seem to have opened up opportunities for farmers in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, as the prices for good quality processed beans touched a whopping $600/kg. Low yield in Madagascar, which produces 80 per cent of the world’s vanilla, due to a cyclone, and declining cultivation in India and Indonesia are stated to be the reasons for the upward trend in prices. However, majority of the farmers here could not take advantage of the situation as they neglected the crop following an earlier price fall. Thus, production dwindled to below five tonnes compared to around 1,000 tonnes in 2008-09. The

Chocolate giant Toblerone launches ice cream


his news is going to bring smiles on several faces because chocolate lovers will now get their favorite brand Toberlone in the ice-cream format. Chocoholics will fall in love as the brand gets an ice cream launch. Toblerone has tantalised chocoholics’ tastebuds with the announcement of their latest release -iced dessert. The Swiss chocolate brand’s ice cream is mixed with chocolate and honey. Just like the original version, the product has been shaped into a triangle and dotted with nougat. Customers can snap up a three pack of the lollies from British supermarkets from around £3. The recipe seems to have gone down a treat with those who have tried it so far. People are in praise for this new product and have taken to social media by storm. Comments and posts have grabbed attention from all quarters. A Twitter user said: “Just had a Toblerone ice cream stick and my life has changed for the better.” Another added: “Toblerone ice cream is delicious.” A third remarked: “I might order two million of these and keep them just for myself.” Many chocolate companies have recently announced plans to release new products. A white chocolate Nutella ice cream wowed fans, while Kinder Bueno also impressed with its new iced recipe. The iconic Toblerone chocolate bar is taking a turn for the colder, with parent company Mondelēz International releasing a chocolate and nougat coated ice cream bar. The new ice cream features a chocolate and honey ice cream base coated in milk chocolate, honeycomb bits, and almond nougat mix-ins. The bar itself is shaped like a giant pyramid, so fans can feel like they eating a giant Toblerone bar. Social media users have lit up at the prospect of the bars, with several commentators on Twitter singing its praises. The bars will be sold in multipacks in UK supermarkets such as Tesco, at £3 per box, as well as individually at select retailers for £1.80 each. There’s no word yet if the bars are coming to Ireland, although they have been spotted in locations such as Dubai and Lebanon despite not officially being listed for sale in those territories.

According to A Jayathilak, Chairman, Spices Board, production was very meager due to a lack of interest from farmers in maintaining vanilla gardens, especially in the wake of disease and the price fall since late 2000s. The lower prices also hindered the area of expansion. Currently, production is limited to isolated pockets in Karnataka and Kerala.

Froneri acquires Mondelez-owned Green & Black’s ice cream


K ice cream manufacturer Froneri has taken over all production of the Green & Black’s organic ice cream brand owned by food giant Mondelez International. Froneri is a joint venture spin-off between Switzerland’s Nestle and the UK’s R&R Ice Cream, which originated in 2016 made it the UK’s largest ice cream producer. Head of UK marketing for Froneri, Charlotte Hambling said “We are proud to be adding another fantastic brand to our premium tubs range that already includes some of the most-loved and well-known household names from Mondelez. Green & Black’s has a unique opportunity in the sector as its mix of high-quality flavours and in-

gredients, as well as its organic credentials, make it a perfect choice for foodies who are looking for a treat of the finest quality.” Green & Black’s is perhaps better known for its range of premium chocolates, a reputation Froneri hopes to imitate in its ice cream. Froneri will roll out three new additions to Green and Black’s organic ice cream: salted caramel, chocolate and ginger, and chocolate and salted caramel. The three new 500-gram tub additions will complement the existing organic ice cream varieties of Green & Black’s Vanilla, Vanilla Caramel Nut and Chocolate variants. Mini pots of 120 millilitres will also be available. The company said “The new additions to the range will seek to establish the brand as the leader in super premium ice cream and occupy a gap in the market for a premium brand whose organic credentials give it an even higher level of luxury.” Green & Black’s Taste Specialist, Brandt Maybury added “We are delighted to be working with Froneri who have a fantastic reputation for producing some of the best ice cream products on the market. Their understanding of quality, great taste and flavours is the perfect choice for upholding Green & Black’s reputation as the ultimate in premium luxury.”

Hatsun Agro makes use of solar steam to make ice-cream


atsun Agro which is an ice-cream and dairy products giant player in southern India will soon use a rather unusual production input: steam for the manufacture of ice-creams. Germany-based company called Protarget has put up a parabolic trough system next to Hatsun’s ice-cream factory near Salem, in west- e r n Tamil Nadu. This which will produce 400 kg of steam an hour using sun’s heat. The steam is piped to the ice-cream plant where it is used for pasteurising milk. The system like any regular solar thermal system, works by the parabolic mirrors concentrating the sunlight onto a tube that carries a ‘heat transfer fluid’ which gets heated up quickly. The heat is then transferred in a heat exchanger to water, which becomes steam. In solar thermal plants that produce electricity, this steam is used to drive the turbines. Hatsun-Protarget deal is different because the steam is made with solar energy. Till now, Hatsun has been using steam produced in-house by burning coal, is spending more on solar steam.

The company officials said that it would pay Rs. 1.3 a kg of steam, 20 paise more than the cost it currently incurs. But it doesn’t mind paying more because of its commitment to renewables. Solar energy expert and Managing Director of Sun Best, Dr C Palaniappan said Hatsun has also put up a solar-water heater system, which produces hot water for its operations, mainly for cleaning its tanks, on the roof of its ice-cream plant in Salem. The system was sold to Hatsun and the plant cost Rs.1 crore, but Hatsun could avail itself of a subsidy of Rs. 42 lakh from the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. The cost to Hatsun would be paid back in four years, while the life of the 220 units of solar heat collectors is 20 years. The collectors produce 32,000 litres of hot water, which is 87 degrees hot when it reaches Hatsun’s plant. With both steam and hot water produced from sun’s energy, Hatsun actually produces solar ice-cream.

New Low-Cal Pints with Less Sugar launched by Talenti Gelato


ot-selling and one of the popular brand of gelato in the U.S., Talenti just launched a new line of low-sugar pints filling freezer aisle shelves. The three new flavors are vanilla cinnamon, mint cookie crunch, and chocolate fudge swirl—so there’s a taste for every kind of palate. Clocking in at 120 calories per serving with less fat and half the sugar of a regular pint of ice cream, you won’t even feel like you’re cheating on your healthy lifestyle after a couple of spoonfuls. What is the secret of this brand? They use monk fruit juice to sweeten things up instead of sugar. Founder of Talenti, Josh Hochschuler said “Our new flavors are inspired by our fans, who were looking

for a better-for-you gelato option with half the sugar but the same delicious taste and texture they’ve come to know and love. And with each new flavor, craftsmanship is still at the heart of our brand. We create unique recipes that source the finest ingredients from throughout the world.” Along with the guilt-free pints, the company also announced three other new flavors to add to their total of 40 frozen dessert products: cold-brew coffee sorbet, chocolate caramel blondie gelato, and almond butter and honey gelato.


This is the most dangerous and spicy ice cream in Glasgow


here are many people in the world who prefer all their dishes highly spiced and there were some who crave for the same taste in desserts. How absurd can that be! There is a café in Glasgow that gaining the attention of creating ‘world’s most dangerous ice cream’ as they make use of a top secret family recipe spanning almost a century. Martin Bandoni’s Aldwych Cafe and Ice Cream Parlour is the name of the place where you can get to eat this sizzling recipe that’s so hot you need to be 18 and sign a disclaimer to try it. The ice cream – named Respiro Del Diavolo which translates as Breath of The Devil is 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. Cardonald-based cafe only makes the special desert in limited batches and advises you to bring a pal if you want to try it out. Martin aged 50, said “It’s something that we’ve

taken over from Italy. It’s a recipe that’s been handed down through the years. “It’s a secret recipe, very few know how it’s put together and it’s been around in our family since the early 1900s.” A post on their Facebook page stated “It might be cold outside but our brand new limited edition ‘Respiro Del Diavolo’ will warm you up with just one spoonful. “Handmade in our Cardonald Ice Cream Parlour with great caution, this ice cream is so hot that you must be 18 years old and sign a disclaimer before we can hand it over. Coming in at 1,569,300 on the SHU scale the chilli’s used to make Respiro Del Diavolo are 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce making even the hottest vindaloo seem like baby food!” Martin added: “It’s very hot. If you like chillies then certainly you will like it but it’s a strange sensation because the ice cream is cold but the flavour is extremely spicy. Your mind plays tricks on you when you try it. The ingredients are sourced locally, but the special chillies are part of the secret recipe from Italy. We are testing how people like it so there is only a limited amount produced but received a lot of positive feedback. There are about three people who know how it’s made and when time is right it will be passed down again.”
