Neal Sharpe, a former director at kosher caterer Sharett, which went into lidquidation last year, has created Nello's - a range of parev ice cream.
He tells People: "Since Sharett closed down I have been looking into developing a brand that appeals to the kosher market. Apart from Snowcrest and Swedish Glace, there isn't really a range of parev ices at the top end. There is definitely a gap in the market."
