Jenny Biggam, Founding Partner of the7stars said: “The ice cream market is incredibly competitive, but R&R is leading the field in innovation, quality and product development which makes it one of the fastest growing companies in the sector.”
Charlotte Hambling of R&R Ice Cream said: “the7stars impressed us with their insight and understanding of what is a rapidly evolving sector. We have a number of new innovations coming to market in 2012 and their in-depth knowledge and creative ideas will be central to our success.”
R&R Ice Cream was formed in May 2006 when Richmond Foods announced its takeover by US investment company Oaktree Capital Management.
Oaktree united Richmond with Roncadin, the largest German own-brand label, to form the largest ice-cream manufacturer in Europe. The company also owns the license to make a number of famous ice cream brands for Nestle, Thorntons and supermarket own brands.
Other media accounts awarded to the7stars in the past few months of last year included Atlantic Records UK, high street retailer Uniqlo, charity Rethink Mental Illness and Sandals holiday resorts.
