Simpsons Buckie is a family owned ice cream, sorbet and frozen yoghurt manufacturing and wholesale business in Buckie, a historic fishing town in the North East of Scotland.
January 2012 saw Simpsons factory open at March Road East in Buckie and since then Simpsons have secured a number of new accounts in the Moray, Aberdeen and Highland area.
We possess an extensive flavour list and an impressive list of customers. Simpsons quality ice cream, sorbet and frozen yoghurt can be found in many exclusive hotels, restaurants and retailers throughout Scotland.
The ice cream is all made by hand in the premises in Buckie using local ingredients where possible. The base ice cream is made with all dairy products and no hydrogenated fats or other oils and no added water. It is this that gives the ice cream a real old fashioned creamy taste and a great mouth feel. The quality fruit we use and other flavours are the best on the market. We utilise local produce where ever possible.
We pride ourselves in being able to make flavours to individual customer requirements at relatively small batch sizes. For example we can make a whisky ice cream for a marketing dinner or a gin & tonic sorbet for a wedding.
We are very proud of our customer list and believe that this reflects the quality of the product and the level of service we offer. Simpsons Ice Cream features on the menus of a number of high quality hotels and restaurants.
We have successfully achieved SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) accreditation consecutively for the past 4 years.
SALSA is a food-safety standard written by experienced food safety experts to reflect both the legal requirements of producers and the enhanced expectations of 'best practice' of professional food buyers. SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to an auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA Standard
March 2012 saw a major step in the development of the Simpsons brand when we launched our 125ml branded tubs in vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. Time, space and financial constraints have all contributed to the delay in the commitment to our branded packaging.
Now 4 years on, we are working on re-launching these tubs in our refreshed branding with the addition of flavours and sizes.
We are a go-ahead company with a wide range of flavours and the ability to please…try us!
