Our philosophy

A FABULOUS DISCOVERY, AS REMEMBERED BY FRANKLIN

I’ve always been epicurean and curious by nature, and particularly passionate about enhancing flavours. In my career as a Master Ice-Cream Maker, I started to notice that the large quantity of sugar used in many recipes was damaging the flavours and making them far less authentic. From that moment I devoted myself to creating an exceptionally tasty ice cream without any added sugar, which foodies of every stripe would adore. Our ice cream and each of our flavours have been patiently and rigorously designed in top secret in our little workshop.

Thanks to our unique and visionary expertise in modern dessert-making, combined with the highest quality ingredients, we can now offer you a product that is the definition of excellence. This all-new, 100% Belgian and completely artisanal ice cream has exceeded all our expectations, and won over countless foodies too. Imagine a light, smooth ice cream with an authentic, aromatic and deliciously surprising flavour that sends your taste buds into overdrive. The result is pure magic!

Franklin, Master Ice-Cream Maker

Our story

Glaces Franklin was the dream of a passionate group of creative people with a shared desire: to create a taste revolution by returning to real, authentic flavours.

2011: A FABULOUS DISCOVERY

It was back in 2011, in Franklin’s tiny workshop, that the first trial runs took place. They say perseverance runs in the blood of great creators. Well, it took almost twenty months to settle on a truly exceptional recipe, because Franklin was determined that his product would match up to traditional ice cream in terms of flavour (nothing like the sugar-free ice creams already on the market). Thanks to his tenacity, he managed to create an ice cream that was smooth, low-calorie and made from natural ingredients – not to mention so flavoursome that the most discerning palates were lining up for it. He had managed to create an indulgent ice cream with surprising, authentic flavours sure to put a smile on anyone’s face!

And because his taste buds never went to sleep, Franklin continued to come up with new flavours. He brought two friends on board who shared his passion, and together they set to work rediscovering the flavours of their childhood. Glaces Franklin was born.

2012:  A PROMISING START

The ice creams make their first appearance in a few bakeries in the Binche area of Hainaut in Belgium. The locals go wild for them straight away.

2013: HITTING THE BIG TIME

They reach the shelves of the prestigious Brussels delicatessen ‘Rob’. Before long, the nostalgic flavours of our artisanal ice creams are receiving a lot of attention. This success prompts the trio to expand the small business and take it to the next level.

AND TODAY…

Nowadays, Glaces Franklin are keen to win over the hearts and taste buds of the wider public, so that everyone can enjoy these unique flavours together!

The secret of artisanal ice cream

Above all, artisanal ice cream is about sourcing the finest ingredients and mastering traditional production techniques. Ice creams are made in small batches to enhance the flavour, and someone is on hand at every phase to taste the product and control the quality, ensuring we get the perfect final product.

Franklin, our Master Ice-Cream Maker, has always promoted local ingredients, so long as they meet his high quality standards. We carefully pasteurise raw milk from Hautes Fagnes ourselves, and source local fresh butter, exceptional Belgian chocolate and even Belgian strawberries. Nothing is left to chance when it comes to making you rediscover the joy of authentic flavours.

 

Our values

Franklin has always paid particular attention to quality, and that includes respecting the people and processes that make our products possible. We personally take great care of everyone involved, from the producers through to the customers.

We love this way of working, and love what we get in return. At the end of the day, Glaces Franklin is all about creating little pots of fun!

Franklin meets all his producers in person, forming a trusting relationship with each and every one (for example, we buy unpasteurised milk directly from a Belgian farm at a set price agreed by the farmer).
