Frederick's Dairies History

Around 1870, Frederick Angelo, an Italian immigrant, came to England and launched his ice cream enterprise in the vicinity of Paradise Street and Meadow Lane in Sheffield during the late 1890s. This move followed his relocation from his hometown in Italy. The business initially started by selling ice cream from carts that were pulled by hand, but later shifted to carts drawn by horses. Frederick's son, John Russel, took the initiative to relocate the business to Chesterfield in 1925.

In 1988, the company took on the endeavor of creating Mars bar-flavored ice cream. By 1998, they successfully obtained the franchise rights for Cadbury Ice Cream. Subsequently, in 2003, they also secured the franchise for Del Monte Iced Refreshment.

Fast forward to 2013, R&R Ice Cream, headquartered in Yorkshire, made a significant move by acquiring Frederick Dairies in a transaction valued at £49 million. In line with this deal, Frank and Philip Frederick, the grandsons of the company's founder, will retain their involvement in the Freezeserve cold storage and distribution business located at Simonswood.
