Food Union, global ice cream and dairy production and distribution group, announced 17 new ice cream products in the family and dessert categories.
The Latvian brand Pols is now offering two new products rich in flavor. One is a classic vanilla ice cream with condensed milk, and the other is a cotton candy ice cream with marshmallows for those who enjoy more playful flavors and are still young at heart. Both ice creams are now available in 500 ml tubs. Food Union’s team innovated these new flavors to reflect both traditional flavors and modern flavors, bringing customers comfort and nostalgia when they need it the most.
Karlsons, one of Latvia’s best-selling ice cream brands, added two new products in large family-sized formats. Both new products capture Karlsons’ classic flavors in a tricolored ice cream: one with vanilla-chocolate-blackcurrant flavors in white-brown-purple ice cream, and the other with vanilla-chocolate-strawberry flavors in a white-brown-pink ice cream. Both ice creams are now available in 850 ml recyclable and biodegradable cardboard packaging.
Pols in Lithuania has two new ice cream products with all-time classic ingredients: chocolate, nuts, and coffee. Pols now offers coffee-flavoured ice cream with a bittersweet coffee filling, and a hazelnut- and chocolate-flavored ice cream with a sweet and savory hazelnut and chocolate filling. Both ice creams are available in large 1 litre environmentally friendly, biodegradable packaging. Pols in Lithuania has also launched small wafer cones with two new flavors — Crème brûlée and Pavlova cake (meringue) — in a 110 ml small-bite format.
Premia, the leading ice cream producer in Estonia, is bringing new flavor combinations and ice creams with less sugar to customers. New flavors include orange ice cream with almond paste and cowberry jam, as well as Premia’s collaboration with Olde Hansa Restaurant featuring pieces of baked spiced almonds. Additionally, Premia’s vanilla ice cream with sweet cherry or strawberry-peach jam features 40% less added sugar. All four new flavors are available in large 1 litre carboard packaging for the family segment.
Ingman, a Belarusian ice cream producer, has transitioned its single-serve ice cream brand Belij Polus to a family-friendly format. Products such as vanilla ice cream, vanilla with strawberry jam, and chocolate ice cream are now available in large 315-, 430- and 950-ml paper and foil flexible packaging.
The company says it innovates based on consumer demands and preferences. “For us at Food Union, ice cream season is all year round. We enjoy delighting our consumers with new products that not only complement their summer experience but also offer a form of sensory comfort and escape in the winter,” Normunds Staņēvičs, CEO of Food Union, Europe said. “And in times of uncertainty, people value what is familiar and trusted. Therefore, the flavors this autumn and winter season are inspired by all-time classics, childhood memories, and customer’s favorite desserts, in family-friendly and environmentally friendly packaging,” he added.
