We are now a certified B Corp!
In short, this means we are part of a global movement of businesses, who are using their influence to make the world a better place. You can read more here.
We know it's a lofty ambition, and that we have plenty to improve...but what really excites us is that we are committed to continually getting better across all of the 5 pillars below.
A fundamental part of becoming a B Corp is to commit (on paper) to always considering ‘stakeholder interests’ including employees, suppliers, shareholders, society and the environment.
This is called our “mission lock” and in simple terms it means that we value people and planet above profit. This has always been our goal, and there are lots of ways we can improve, but we are delighted that this is now an official commitment incorporated into our company articles of association.
To craft brilliant ice cream, you need brilliant people. They’re the most important ingredient. Jude’s has been a team effort from day one and we love working with both family and friends. Together we’ve developed our craft over 15 years and have grown an incredibly talented team of ice cream makers.
We prioritise safety over everything else, which is paramount when operating in a dairy where we cook at high temperature and freeze at very low temperatures every day. We have policies in place to ensure that Jude’s is a fair, inclusive, diverse and flexible place to work.
We want Jude’s to be the best place to work and will continue to improve wherever we can.
And to you, our brilliant customers. Everything we do is to knock your socks off and bring flavour, colour and life into your lives – from creating mind-blowingly delicious scoops to packaging that brightens your day, to delivering the best customer service. We are committed to developing products that meet your needs, such as our indulgent classic range, lower sugar kids products and a growing plant-based range. We also think some of the most boring things are the most important, such as data security or production and supply chain safety to ensure your products reach you in perfect condition.
Life is good together and at Jude’s we want to bring joy to our local and wider community.
Jude herself, alongside her husband, heads up our schools' programme, where they visit local primary schools to run an ice cream based educational program. A tour of the dairy and ice cream sampling (of course!) always gets the kids beaming.
And finally, good ice cream should never go to waste! We give as much surplus stock as we can to local charities and food banks.
Crafting ice cream is our absolute joy and we are mindful of the environmental impact of everything we do. We are working on improving multiple aspects of our business, but here are some of the things we do.
