    Gifford’s Making Their Famous 'HomeMaine' Ice Cream Again After Fire

    For the first time in a year, Gifford’s Ice Cream is making Maine’s most famous ice cream after a fire ripped through production facilities, forcing the company to rely on co-packers. To get back up and running, the family-owned ice cream company carved out a smaller production area—roughly 30% of actual size once the factory is fully restored—and has two lines running to produce quarts and bulk flavors for its wholesale customers and ice cream stands. A brother and sister are part of the fifth generation of ice cream makers running the company and churning out distinctive flavors in ‘40s-era Cherry Burrell freezers. On this episode of From the Cold Corner, Lindsay Skilling, CEO of Gifford’s, and JC Gifford, COO, share the latest on the rebuilding process, becoming the official ice cream of the New England Patriots and more.► Read the full story

    State of the Cultivated Protein Industry

    State of the Cultivated Protein Industry

    Last summer, UPSIDE Foods, a cultivated meat, poultry and seafood company, received approvals needed by the USDA, following a greenlight from the FDA in Fall 2022. That allowed the company to start commercial production and sale of its cultivated chicken. Since then, a number of companies, like Meatable, Wanda Fish and Believer Meats, have announced plans to scale production.  As so-called cruelty-free meat moves out of the lab and into the mainstream, what is the current state of the cultivated meat industry and how soon can we expect to see it on menus? On this episode of From the Cold Corner, Stephanie Lind, founder of Elohi Strategic Advisors, a consulting firm specializing in food and beverage Sebastian Bohn, sub-market leader of alternative proteins at CRB, an architecture and engineering firm specializing in the F&B space, discuss the current state of the cultivated – or cell-based – meat and what we can expect in the future.
