Name change for Richmond

Richmond Ice Cream has changed its name to Richmond & Roncadin Ice Cream after merging with a German

own-label ice cream manufacturer.

The move was announced last week following a buyout by American investment company Oaktree at the end

of last year.

The new joint company has become the largest ice cream manufacturer in Europe, according to a spokesman.

James Lambert, group chief executive of R&R for the European and UK Ice Cream Board, said: "This name change takes place at an exciting time for Richmond. We have seen phenomenal growth over the past year and now, as R&R, we can

become a key player in the European

ice

cream market."

Richmond produces Nestlé

products

such as Fab and Rowntree's Fruit

Pastilles , plus

it has recently launched Fruitcrunch bars and Skinny Cow

range.
