Rossi has been producing award-winning ice cream in Essex since 1932 and to celebrate our momentous 85th year milestone in style, launched an exciting limited-edition Birthday Cake Ice Cream and held an event at our new premises with over 100 guests in attendance.

Guests included Southend Major, Faye Evans, Sir David Amis and a number of local businesses and organisations. All were treated to refreshments including Limited Edition Birthday Cake Ice Cream, only available from selected Rossi parlours whilst stocks last, as part of the Birthday Celebrations.

The evening included a welcome speech from Colin Gray, Rossi Director, looking back at the story behind the Company as well as the exciting plans going forward as the business continues to grow. Guests also enjoyed tours of the new Rossi premises and factory, taking in the display of historical memorabilia and machinery including some of the original milk churns.

Colin Gray, Rossi Director, was overwhelmed by the event saying “85 years is a long time and we hope for many more successful years as we continue to expand the business. I would like to thank all of the generations who have enjoyed Rossi Ice Cream over the years”.  He continues, “I would like to thank the team as they are the back bone of the company and I am immensely proud of their incredible achievements. Rossi recently gained listings in over 25 local Morrison stores and now working with JJ Food Service. We look forward to move into the future with the company as we have some exciting news and announcements in the not too distant future”.
