Nissan asked us to join in with Mackie's ice cream for the launch of their new electric van on clean air day last week. Our Sky to Scoop philosophy and climate positive credentials – made our ice cream the perfect fit for their demonstration of the innovative technology on board this zero emission Ice Cream van! The concept is a quirky ice cream van set up – where the server is on street level providing a soft serve scoop of Mackie’s mix or a scoop of one of our Traditional flavours. We’re delighted to have worked with Nissan on this project as it’s the perfect complement to our own vision of becoming self-sustainable in renewable energy – and eliminating carbon in the journey from ‘Sky to Scoop’.
This year we plan to install a new refrigeration system set to be one of the most sophisticated in Europe. In a £4million project, we’ll replace existing freezing equipment with low carbon, power efficient units run on ammonia - a natural refrigerant gas that poses no threat to the environment- having zero global warming potential. In an innovative combined solution, we will cool Mackie’s ice cream with heat - from a biomass boiler, powered by a sustainable energy source.
