Levi Roots teams up with Cornish ice cream makers to launch new Carribean inspired flavours

Levi Roots has teamed up with a Cornish farm to release a range of ‘fabulicious’ Caribbean-inspired ice-cream and sorbets.

Famous for introducing Reggae Reggae Sauce to the market via the notoriously challenging Dragon’s Den TV show, Levi’s stated aim is ‘to bring the sunshine of the Caribbean to all of his ventures’.

It is the first time the celebrity food entrepreneur has ventured into ice-cream and sorbet, and he’s doing so with Callestick Farm, who are based near Truro.

From March, Levi Roots Toffee Apple & Rum Ice Cream, Mango, Passionfruit & Lime Sorbet, Chocolate, Coconut & Rum Ice Cream and Mango & Hot Chilli Sorbet will be available for wholesale and food service in 2.5 litre tubs.

“I am so excited to be launching my very own fabulicious range of the most delicious flavour ice-creams you will have tasted,” said Levi.

“Check them out and let your taste buds be jumping for joy.”

Callestick Farm is an award-winning brand that has achieved 25 per cent growth in the last twelve months.

“We’re delighted to be working with Levi Roots and introducing flavour combinations that add a touch of Jamaican spice and warmth,” said Callestick Farm Sales Director David Jeffs.

“They represent a new creative direction in ice-cream and sorbet production and will appeal to people who want to try something different, exotic and wonderfully tasty.”

The Parker’s have been farming Callestick since 1953, when Simon and Judith moved to Callestick Farm, initially operating a traditional mixed farm with chickens, pigs, milking cows, sheep, beef stock and also growing our own cereals.

In the late 1970’s their son, Sebastian, returned to the farm with his wife Angela, having moved away to study environmental studies and agriculture with the aim to modernise the farm.

In 1989, following the introduction of milk quotas, Simon and Angela began making ice cream whilst Sebastian ran the farm and Judith helped to look after their four sons, Ben, Sam, Josh and Jake.

Callestick today is still a very family run affair with Angela and Sebastian taking a step back, sons Ben and Sam taking the reigns.

Ben works on the operational side of the ice cream, having been away to study process engineering. Sam has one true passion, so puts his agriculture degree into practice looking after our 300 strong herd on the farm.
