ICE GROUP SUMMER SHORTS!

Summer is the best of all seasons! But for us - ice cream people - it is also the time of hard work.

In order not to lose a sense of humor in the daily whirl, we decided to collect some products we helped to manufacture, presenting them in a funny way.

In our “Summer Shorts” video series we recall different ice cream categories and different types of machines produced by us.

Here, in Ice Group, it is very rare that we manufacture equipment for a single product and its mass production. Our machines, usually multi-product and multi-functional, do not leave the changing market needs without an answer. This is our niche and our specialty. We invite the

perfect summer and sunny smile to every ice cream company in 2020!

Current market situation

During the past couple of months, we have been working even more intensively than usually. Our observations and, at the same time, conclusions, are surely subjective and it would be good to venture to make them objective. This article by our L. Arkadiusz Geratowski, published in parts on Linked-In in June 2020, is an attempt to launch a discussion regarding changes in relation to industrial ice cream market and to consumer habits. Which changes in your opinion are just temporary and which ones can turn out to be permanent?
