And so the story begins...
The Italians revel in their claim to making the finest ice cream in the world, often using traditional and secret methods handed down through the ages. Their inventiveness in creating new flavours and delicacies is unrivalled, making Italian ice cream the envy of manufacturers all around the world. Drawing on such heritage, Sidoli’s has consistently endeavoured to achieve high standards throughout the whole of its product range.
Our story begins in 1922, when Benedetto Sidoli started the company after emigrating from Bardi, Italy. He began making ice cream in the heart of South Wales, Ebbw Vale, bringing with him many of the traditional recipes which the company continues to use today.
With over ninety year’s experience, the company has been the recipient of many National Awards for its ice cream making. Much of this success is due to the family run nature of the business, and the sacrifices made by Benedetto and his sons during the early years of trading.
Whilst tradition has played an important role in shaping the business, the company has fully embraced modern management and marketing methods.
We believe that our ice creams uniqueness is created by only using ingredients of outstanding quality. When you pair this with the wealth of knowledge and experience we have at our disposal, it allows us to produce our premium dairy Ice Cream. It’s this combination that gives Sidoli’s it unrivalled taste.
Much of the early trading was to local businesses throughout the South Wales Valleys. However, today Sidoli’s is recognised across the majority of the South West for its outstanding Italian Style Dairy ice cream.
The business developed and expanded under the management of Benedetto’s two sons Terry and Raymond, and now Mark Sidoli develops and guides this excellent brand into the 21st Century.
