Luxury ice cream company, Equi’s, launches in Dobbies Garden Centres in Scotland


Equi’s Ice Cream, the Lanarkshire-based luxury ice cream company, has secured a new listing across all Dobbies Garden Centres throughout Scotland for its Double Cream Vanilla Ice Cream.

Equi’s Double Cream Vanilla Ice Cream is being rolled out across all 15 Dobbies stores in Scotland; available in 500ml tubs for customers visiting the Edinburgh Dobbies store to take home and available for diners to enjoy in all Dobbies stores restaurants. The multi-award winning ice cream is made with milk and double cream from local dairy farms and natural Bourbon Vanilla sourced from Madagascar, making it incredibly rich in flavour.

Restaurant director at Dobbies, Costas Constantinou, said: “We are proud to be associated with Equi’s, which is one of the finest ice-cream manufacturers in Scotland.  Made using Scottish milk and cream, and with such a rich heritage dating back nearly a century, it is no wonder that Equi’s was selected by our own staff.”

David Equi, managing director of Equi’s Ice Cream commented: “We’re excited to be in Dobbies stores in the build up to the festive season as they’re such a big Christmas destination for shoppers. Our vanilla ice cream is perfect for Christmas; it’s delicious served with warm mince pies and of course, Christmas pudding. This year, our 95th year of operating has been a hugely successful one for Equi’s; we’ve secured new listings and have received multiple award wins. We’re looking forward to our continued growth in 2018 and another prosperous year.”

Equi’s was set up in 1922 by David Equi’s grandfather Pietro, and the company has remained in the family since. As well as the original ice cream parlour in Hamilton, Equi’s also has parlours in Motherwell and Aberdeen and its ice cream and sorbets are served in cafes and restaurants across Scotland.  Equi’s ice cream is also available to buy from selected Morrisons and ASDA in Scotland.
