Testimonials

Here are a few kind words from our customers and colleagues…

Dear Caroline and all of you, Just wanted to say thank you for all the delicious ice cream we enjoyed at our BBQ last weekend. My serving of ice cream was a great success, and as soon as everyone knew it was your ice cream, they were queueing up! Magic. Thank you for all you do. We look forward to enjoying more in the future.

2015 has seen another year of growth for Caroline’s Dairy in Southern Co-operative stores, we saw a 48% uplift in trade across our estate. We started working with Caroline in 2009 and 6 years down the line a strong relationship continues to exist and flourish. Caroline continues to deliver fresh and innovative flavours to the range and her skills are recognised through the annual awards she receives across the sector. Having access to the ice cream in both 120ml and 500ml tubs allows us to focus on our customer profiles to deliver bespoke ranges into store. Caroline delivers a first class product alongside first class service and we are delighted that she remains one of our key Sussex Local Flavours brands.

I had some of your wonderful ice cream yesterday at the George and Dragon in Burpham, Sea Buckthorn. Where can I buy some? And the other ranges as well – don’t eat ice cream as a rule, but I am now hooked!

Caroline-had to write about your amazing ice cream that we sampled at Chichester canal cafe. We had raspberry which was yummy and truly fabulous ginger – wow!! Lovely ingredients and so so moorish – thank you and your staff and of course those dairy cows!

I have watched and tasted this business growing with great delight. I often serve Caroline’s Dairy ice creams at functions and they are always rapturously received.

We started working with Caroline in 2009, putting her ice cream into 3 stores. At the end of 2010 we had four flavours in five of our stores. By the end of 2013 we were carrying 15 flavours and we were ranging Caroline’s ice cream in 11 of our Sussex stores. In four years our turnover has increased by 469%!!!! This growth has been organic and more importantly, it has been sustained. The product is of a consistently high quality and the relationship is open, honest and professional. All potential stores and products can be discussed with each party understanding the others expertise. Combined, this expertise has proven to be successful to date. As our Sussex estate continues to expand we expect to see Caroline’s Dairy ice cream in each new store.

Congratulations from South East National Trust.

We have recently had our quarterly local product group meeting and I wanted to share with you your fantastic results. You are our number one supplier across the whole range. I hope you are as delighted as I am. It seems a long time ago that I spent such a lovely time at the farm talking about you becoming a supplier and here you are No 1.

Thanks to you and Debs for your excellent service, well done.

Caroline’s passion, professionalism, personality, sense of humour & taste buds make for the most delicious recipe for the most mouth wateringly delicious ice cream outside of Italy!

Caroline’s Dairy ice cream is as it says on the tubs ‘Simple, Honest, Delicious’ & the warning ‘This product expliots human weakness’ is spot on, one spoonful is never quite enough (especially the coffee expresso!). This also explains the massive success her business has had since launch, with retailers, corporate, public & personal events plus well respected pubs & restaurants serving it up for their customers or guests delight. Added to which her drive & desire to deliver great ice cream ensure doing business with her is always a pleasure.

Caroline has supplied us with her Ice Creams at several events that we have held for the business community. The products are excellent, have been very well received and gained high praise from all. Dealing with Caroline was easy, very professional and we will certainly continue to use her in the future.
