Henley Bridge employee gains coveted Gelato Master title

British-based Henley Bridge ingredients supplier has confirmed that one of its own stars, Steve Carrigan has ‘scooped’ the prestigious title of Gelato Master after completing Carpigiani’s newest training programme.

The business’s Gelato & Ice Cream Sales Manager graduated from the top-level course – the first of its kind in the UK – after completing intensive training on gelato techniques, practices and theory. The industry-recognised qualification from the Carpigiani University in Bologna, Italy, included is a written exam as well as a practical exam at the end of the learning period.

Steve commented: “The Master course was incredibly challenging but equally rewarding. It’s pushed me to think differently about gelato, from the science of its composition to the art of its presentation, and I’m excited to bring these new insights to Henley Bridge and share them with our customers.

“On a personal level, it’s a dream come true. Gelato isn’t just a job for me; it’s a passion that runs in my veins. Professionally, it’s a milestone that reflects my commitment to excellence and innovation in the world of gelato.”

Formed in 1998, the business is now part of the wider Albex Group of companies, employs 50 staff and operates out of a 30,000 square foot facility in South East England, and is now a key supplier forchocolatiers, gelato artists, bakers and chefs.
