The New Forest Ice Cream Company has achieved the first national listings for its ice cream range.

One-litre tubs available in eight variants including Oriental Ginger (rsp: £3.40) are now rolling out nationally to selected Waitrose and Tesco stores.

"With many consumers visiting the New Forest, there has been a real demand for the product," said company director Christine Veal.

Suitable for vegetarians, the traditional ice creams are made from Jersey double cream and milk and do not include egg.
