Co-op recently announced they’re doubling local food suppliers stocked in-store, with a new Small Business Charter. I run one of Co-op’s existing local food suppliers, Ammanford-based ice cream maker, Frank’s Ice Creams.

Franks Ice Cream now supply around 120 Co-op food stores in communities across Wales. 2016 marked the centenary of our founder, Francesco Dallavalle, arriving in Wales from Parma, northern Italy.

I’m the grandson of the firm’s founder, the 3rd generation of ice cream makers at Frank’s. My grandfather opened his first café in 1920 after arriving in Wales four years earlier. Almost 100 years later, Frank’s still uses traditional recipes and finest Welsh ingredients combined with Italian flair.
