Friday 29th November 2019 was an important day in The Ice Co’s calendar, it was the day we held our very first Company Catchup. In 160 years, this is the first time we have got the whole team of over 100 of us together from across our 3 factories, to share some exciting company updates and for everyone to learn more about the company that they work for. Hosted by Polly our Managing Director and Owner we started with a game of heads and tails as an ice breaker, followed by an animated timeline showing our company history. Since 1860 a lot has changed. It hasn’t always been ice…
The Company Catchup was the perfect time to share our brand new company video featuring employees across the business. Discover for yourself how the worlds most refreshing product is made, including a sneak peak into all 3 of our manufacturing sites across the UK. It’s not just frozen water…

Many people in our company have worked with us for a number of years, some over a decade. We wanted to recognise these employees and give them a gift for their continued commitment. A special thank you to those who have worked for us for over 10 years…
With over a decade of experience, the below employees have worked for us for over 15 years…some 25 years. We couldn’t be prouder!
It was a fantastic morning all in all, followed then by our annual Christmas Party at the races. We’re not sure how many were lucky enough to have some winners with the horses but what we do know is that everyone had a splendid time.
Until next year!
