WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE FLAVOUR?
We have a large selection in stock of delicious flavours to add to your ice creams, sorbets, gelato and other culinary uses. One of our more popular flavours with the younger generation is the Iron Brew flavour and the Meucci Blue Cloud Paste children simply love the blue colour and the fantasy flavour (aniseed). With our range of delicious vanilla products there is something to please even the fussiest of palates! NOCCIOLA ( HAZLENUT) - FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH
Solerco Products was founded in 1976 by Carlo Capaldi after he met Dott. Antonio Meucci.
Carlo was already part of a well-established ice cream family in York, and being born into the business meant he had many years’ experience making and selling ice cream.
He had certainly served many hours in apprenticeship, and often spoke of his fond memories of not only making the ice cream but also selling from one of the family vans. At the time of the first meeting between Carlo and Antonio, the company Meucci in Milan were wishing to expand into the UK market, and Carlo saw the potential for quality continental style ice cream in the UK.
It was a challenge, as any suggestion made to the UK manufacturers to change their style of ice cream was met with a response of ‘my customers only like vanilla and strawberry'. Help in changing their views came across the Atlantic with the appearance of American Ice Cream Parlours serving many different flavours.
Solerco continues to be sole importer of Meucci Milano flavours and ingredients. Meucci themselves are a family business and have been established for over 100 years. The technical backup from Meucci Milano helps Solerco to provide a complete service to the ice cream industry, which is built on a long standing reputation for high quality products and excellent customer service. We have local agents countrywide, who can provide advice and demonstrations of our products within their area.
Over the years Solerco has added many flavours and ancillary lines to their listings and now supply a wide variety of products to their listings and continue to supply products to businesses of all sizes from the large manufacturers down to the small artisan family establishments.
Here at Solerco, we pride ourselves on a fast, efficient and friendly service for our customers that covers the United Kingdom and Southern Ireland. We carry large stocks of most items, we can also provide a bespoke service should there be a new flavour or item that you require we are happy to discuss this with you.
Sadly the founder Carlo Capaldi passsed away in Decmeber 2014, Jean his wife took over the reins and continues to run the business in the UK and Dott Antonio Meucci is still a integral part of the business based in Milan.
