The Great Indian Ice Cream & Frozen Dessert Contest 2017
‘The Great Indian Ice Cream and Frozen Dessert Contest’ (TGIIFDC) was organized with an ethnic Indian theme. In 2017, TGIIFDC celebrated the kind of ice creams one wants to eat – tasty, authentic and creatively localized with an ethnic Indian twist. The competition introduced ‘Sorbet’ as one of the award categories for first time, to further endorse its popularity as a healthier fruit-infused frozen alternative in the ice cream market. The contest was designed to honor work of ice cream and frozen dessert manufacturers in India and honored winners who pushed their industry towards craftsmanship and innovation enhancing popular ice cream flavor landscape and creating local concoctions. Participants competed for best-in-class, gold, silver and bronze titles in six award categories – standard vanilla ice cream, standard vanilla frozen dessert, best chocolate, most innovative, kool kids, sorbet.. The ice cream varieties are primarily judged on their flavour and aroma, texture and body, and in presentation.
