We often include free ice cream to stock up your new freezer if you commit to buying our ice cream. We work with industry leaders Interlevin Refrigeration and can offer a range of freezer types and sizes, all branded in Marshfield’s eye-catching artwork. Please see our Freezers page for full details and to download this year’s freezer deal options.

  • What temperature should ice cream be stored at?

    For long-term storage you should store ice cream at -18C or below. If you are scooping the ice cream you may wish to run your freezer very slightly warmer to make it easier to scoop – many run their freezers at -16C in these situations.

  • How many scoops should I be getting from a four-litre and Napoli sized tub?

    With proper management, you will get 30-35 scoops from a four-litre tub and 40-45 scoops from a Napoli tray.

  • What’s the best way to look after my scooping ice cream?

    Luckily, it does not require much special attention. But it is worth doing the following: make sure the freezer is out of direct sunlight and ensure compressor vents are unobstructed, regularly wipe off condensation on glass sliding lids to prevent ice build-up, keep the lids clean and cover with the lid every night to prevent ice forming on the surface of the ice cream.

  • How do I stop ice crystals forming?

    Ensure you always shake excess water off your scoop, make sure that your freezer is cold enough and doesn’t fluctuate in temperature too much, and replace the clean lids of half-used tubs each night.

  • Are your hygiene standards regularly audited?

    We directly employ our own Compliance Officer who carries out extensive announced and unannounced auditing procedures in our factory and is a very hard taskmaster! We ensure our health and hygiene standards are second to none. We achieved 5 stars in our Local Authority ‘Scores on the Doors’ Hygiene Audit this year and we also achieved B grade in our NSF/CMI audit. We welcome customer visits and audits.

  • Who do I contact about marketing/media coverage?

    Please send your queries to marketing.

  • What about social media and keeping in touch?

    We have a lively Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page and would love to hear from you. We are happy to promote your news so do get in touch.
