You can also become a Friend of Mackie’s and find out the news as and when it happens.
You can now meet the team behind Mackie's here on our new page of portraits. Inspired by the popular 'Humans of New York' facebook project, we wanted to show you who we are and what we do as a flavour of what's involved in making ice cream and chocolate. It is thanks to this small team of people, their commitment, loyalty and diversity of skill that we can survive in a highly competitive market (along with your help when you buy the products!). We hope that this gives you a feel for who we are and how we make real dairy ice cream.
The accompanying profiles describe what it is like to work for a family business, live & work in the countryside and give some local doric phrases and suggestions for what we might make next! We commissioned photographers Tricia Malley and Ross Gillespie, see their blog about the project alongside examples of some of their more well-known faces at broad daylight. We thank broad daylight for their patient efforts - and to everyone for joining in - it has been interesting and a bit of fun!
