Lick your lips - it’s ice cream week


Here at Federated Farmers we are generally always ready to roll when it comes to celebrating ice cream.

Why? Because it is delicious, ice cream is a job creator, and it is one of the foods accessible to every New Zealander, no matter their socio-economic background, says Federated Farmers dairy chairperson Chris Lewis.

Today marks the start of the New Zealand Ice Cream Manufacturers Association’s inaugural New Zealand Ice Cream Week, from November 19 to November 25.

New Zealand ice cream is delicious and is known for its quality internationally.

Earlier this year music icon Cher declared that New Zealand ice cream was the best the world had to offer - later she was challenged to eat some Australian ice cream by an Australian breakfast television show, but she stuck to her guns and reckons "New Zealand is the best".

Ice cream has always been a topic of discussion for notable people.

A Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision article states that in 1958 New Zealand radio legend Aunt Daisy in her work proclaimed ice cream to not be fattening because it contained no starch. "It’s a good food."

Federated Farmers wishes the manufacturers an excellent week, Chris says.
