Food Union kicks-off Summer of 2024 with 55 industry trending ice cream novelties

Food Union, an international ice cream producer and distributor, has demonstrated its continued commitment to innovation and consumer satisfaction with the launch of its 2024 high season novelties. A total of 55 new ice cream products have been developed, taking into account global trends and local consumer preferences across six European markets.

Food Union is set to entertain the ice cream market in 2024 with a range of novel products that cater to the latest consumer trends. Embracing the demand for healthy indulgence, the new offerings include “lighter” alternatives with low sugar and low fat, while also introducing innovative textures like jelly-like consistency for more convenient on-the-go snacking. Vegan-friendly sorbets provide refreshing options for all, and adult-themed, alcohol-flavored ice creams cater to sophisticated palates. Exotic fruits and savory berries continue to captivate, while juicy sauce fillings and twirls add excitement to each bite. Salted caramels and nuts remain popular for their soothing flavors, and classic favorites make a nostalgic return, ensuring there’s something for everyone in Food Union’s diverse and exciting 2024 lineup.

From surprisingly innovative to recognasibly classical, from rich in cream to refreshingly lean and vegan-friendly, from juicy and fruity to creamy and crunchy – is how this year’s summer is going to taste when it comes to quality indulding frozen treat in form of 55 novel ice cream products prepared by Food Union R&D and marketing team to be distributed in total of 6 home markets – Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark, Norway and Romania,” says Artūrs Čirjevskis, CEO of Food Union in Europe. 

The 2024 novelties are grounded in trends that are shaping the industry:

“Lighter” ice creams with low sugar and low fat. This trend is driven by increasing health consciousness, dietary trends favoring low-carb and low-fat options, improved nutritional label transparency, and innovations in food technology that allow for healthier alternatives without compromising taste. Food Union continues to prioritize the development of numerous products to cater these consumer needs:

Vegan-friendly ice creams. The broader acceptance and introduction into our everyday lives of plant-based diets and the desire for healthier, innovative dessert options without compromising taste is the main driver of prevalence of vegan-friendly ice creams on the market.
