Founded in 1898, it is the oldest independent producer of ice cream in East Anglia and the longest-established in England.

It all started with Giuseppe Parravani, who began as a small ice cream seller in the busy city streets of Norwich.

Parravani’s ice cream is carefully made to a family recipe handed down from generation to generation, using traditional batch methods and only the best natural ingredients, many sourced locally, but with some imported from Italy.
