STAFF at an ice cream manufacturer are celebrating after scooping a national industry award for a York inspired creation.
Acaster Malbis based Yorvale was named as the winner of the Ice Cream Taste of Excellence Award at The Cream Awards in recognition of its new Chocolate Orange Ripple ice cream.
Yorvale's director Lesley Buxton said: “We're so pleased to have this national trade award of this calibre at the first attempt and it's quite ironic that a recipe inspired by York's confectionery history should have clinched it for us.
"We are a small, farm based family business and we're very proud of our team for helping us to be able to compete with, and beat, much bigger companies."
Yorvale is also a finalist in The Press Business Awards for Small Business of the Year.
