Year 10 Food Technology Visit to Roskillys

The Food Technology class  have recently visited Roskillys at St Keverne to observe food manufacture in progress, in this case, the famous Roskilly’s ice cream. After putting on protective clothing and making sure we all washed our hands thoroughly, Toby Roskilly gave a history of the business and a fascinating insight into the manufacturing process. This included details of how most of the famous ice cream flavourings such as ‘hokey pokey’ are manufactured in-house.

This was a unique opportunity for the students as it is notoriously difficult to arrange visits to food manufacturers due to stringent health & safety regulations. We are very grateful to the Roskilly family for managing to accommodate us all so well.

A highlight of the visit must be going into the giant blast freezer at -22°C (the students won’t forget this key temperature for their theory exam in a hurry!) We also sampled the delicious ice-cream which is now sold all over Britain and on the continent.  We were served by Tom Roskilly who is part of the GCSE group. Well done Tom!
