Welsh ice cream manufacturer Loseley Dairy Ice Cream has been bought out by its managing director Tim Wilson.
As well as the Loseley ice cream brand, Wilson also takes control of Thayers and Yorkshire Dales ice cream brands.
Wilson, along with his wife Liz, founded Yorkshire Dales Dairy Ice Cream, which then merged with Loseley in 2001 after its factory was flooded.
He has acquired Loseley Dairy Ice Cream from Thayers New England. "We shall continue to produce Yorkshire Dales and Thayers dairy ice cream, while re-establishing Loseley to what I believe is its rightful position as Britain's premier dairy ice cream," said Wilson.
Loseley is the official ice cream supplier to Wimbledon tennis championships and promotional activity is planned for the summer, including consumer PR and county shows.
Loseley will be moving from its Cardiff base to a new 80,000 sq ft factory in Cwmbran in mid-September, with the capacity to produce 240,000 litres of ice cream a day.
