It is with great sadness that I announce the closure of Cornell Creme ice cream.
Closing this business is one of the hardest decisions I have had to make. Due to a number of factors, including rising production and ingredient costs and my own personal reasons, we will not make any more Cornell Creme ice cream.
I started Cornell Creme in 2012 as a small side business, using milk from my family’s farm to make real ice cream for one Winnipeg restaurant. It was a passion project that quickly snowballed into something much bigger. In the blink of an eye, it seemed, we were making a product for retail and stores were actually contacting us to carry our ice cream.
I can’t give enough thanks to the stores, who have continued to carry and promote our products over the years. We were so fortunate to have so many passionate people to help spread the word about our ice cream. Product sales are certainly not the problem, thanks to the support of our retailers and loyal customers, who continue to purchase and spread the word about Cornell Creme. We will be forever grateful for the spot you made for us in your freezers, on your tables, and in your hearts.
I have adored these past five years, making a product that people have loved as much as I did and being a part of the amazing group of people in the Manitoba local food community.
But sadly, it’s time to say goodbye to Cornell Creme.
Looking back on this experience with you will always put a smile on my face. Thanks for the memories Manitoba!
