The Scoop: Famous Scottish-Italian ice cream manufacturer and wholesaler up for sale

Graham + Sibbald, the independent Scottish chartered surveyor, is acting for famous Scottish-Italian ice cream manufacturer and wholesaler Di Rollo Ice Cream in Musselburgh around the sale of the 120-year old business.

Di Rollo supplies a large selection of flavored ice cream to many restaurants, cafes, hotels, catering companies and retail outlets across Edinburgh and East Lothian.  The business includes a purpose built production facility and the premises covers over 5,000 square feet.  The facility complies with all the latest EU directives and is capable of producing over 300 litres of ice cream an hour.

Suzanne Lawrie, Business Valuer at Graham + Sibbald, said: “Di Rollo Ice Cream is a much loved, successful regional business with a fantastic customer base.  As a third generation, family-run business, the current owners are planning their retirement and this underpins the decision to sell.  We see this as an excellent opportunity to expand the business.”
