In 1936, our Grandfather married his sweetheart, an Italian ice cream girl herself. Originally from the beautiful town of Vigiolo in Liguria, Italy, our Grandmother’s family, the Massas, had been making ice cream in Chorley, Lancashire since 1892.


As a generous wedding gift, our Grandparents were given their very own ice cream shop and factory – and from here we still make all our delicious ice cream today!


Now our parents are in charge, assisted by us, their children, making us the fourth generation of this very successful family!
