Trillo’s of Whitby has been crafting ice cream for over a century. The Trillo family, hailing from Italy, brought their cherished ice cream recipes when they relocated to Whitby. In 2005, David Stevenson, a local farmer, and his business partner Basil acquired the company. Still, they retained the Trillo’s name to honour its local heritage and continue to produce ice cream in the quaint Whitby factory.

Their passion for British farming is evident in the locally sourced milk and cream from North Yorkshire farms, which forms the base for their luxurious, award-winning ice cream. Trillo’s also takes pride in employing people from the local community, some of whom have been with the company for several years.

Thanks to the expertise and creativity of its experienced team, Trillo’s has refined their recipe over the years, resulting in national recognition and numerous awards
