The article focuses on the ice cream business of Derbyshire producer Malcolm Sutton in England. Ice cream is the family's second farm diversification. Ice cream appealed more than cheese and they had an opportunity with Chatsworth, a sales outlet that immediately would help them, explains Sutton. He believes the best tip he picked up was to gain British Retail Consortium (BRC) accreditation for food hygiene. Much time and effort was spent on packaging design and getting the actual taste and texture of the ice cream.
