Hangyo bags 6 ice cream contest awards

Hangyo Ice Cream, one of the country’s fastest growing ice cream brands, won six awards in the Great Indian Ice Cream Contest 2017 including two gold medals for its Standard Vanilla Ice Cream and Cool Kids in the children’s category.


This latter category is coveted because it is judged by a panel of children. Judging was held under the aegis of DuPont and the Indian Dairy Association held last month. 
Managing director of Hangyo Ice Cream Pradeep G Pai said, “The haul of awards includes two gold medals for Standard Vanilla Ice Cream and Cool Kids in the children’s category, three silver awards in the Best Chocolate category, Mango Sorbet in the Sorbet category and the Most Innovative in the Innovative category. We won a bronze  in the Standard Vanilla Frozen Dessert category. ”
He added, “Despite Hangyo being one the most recent entrants to the established Indian ice cream market, it has introduced an astonishing range of products across all categories in various consumer age groups, taste profiles and price points. We take this opportunity to thank all those who have been a part of this wonderful journey and continue to do so. We are overwhelmed that 15 years of hard work and relentless efforts are recognised and appreciated.”
The annual Great Indian Ice Cream Contest is organised to challenge ice cream manufacturers and producers to present their best products for popular choice awards. As many as 103 participants across India took part in the event and competed in six different categories. The contestants presented  more than 300 samples.
The ice cream varieties were primarily judged on flavour, aroma, texture, body, and presentation. A panel comprising representatives from the ice cream industry, members of the Indian Dairy Association, and technical and innovation experts from DuPont judged the event. The annual contest was open to all manufacturers of ice creams and frozen desserts in India.
Product innovativeness, potential to be successful in the commercial market and technical skills used in product development laid the foundation for selection of the winners.
