Co-operative and Jersey Dairy have launched a competition for islanders to create a new flavour of ice cream.

The companies are coming together for the 100th year celebrations since the Co-op opened their first store in the Channel Islands.

Islanders can submit their ideas as of today.

Jersey Dairy’s tasting kitchen will judge 10 recipes and pick their favourite three flavours.

The three chosen flavours will be voted on by the public who will choose their winning flavour, which will then go into production and on sale in Co-op’s Grand Marché and Locale stores.

This partnership with Jersey Dairy is a fun way of getting our members and customers to join in with our celebrations by creating a brand new flavour of ice cream.

Colin Macleod, The Channel Islands Co-operative Society’s Chief Executive Officer

Jersey Dairy say they aim to have the new ice cream on sale in June so it is available for the summer.

We are always looking for new, bright ideas and are really looking forward to seeing what flavours islanders can come up with, we invite everyone to be as creative as possible.

Eamon Fenlon, Jersey Dairy’s Managing Director

Islanders can submit their flavours in-store, online or by post until Sunday 24th March.
