Founded by: Theo Mezger

It all began in 2002 in a Hampshire dairy barn. Our founder started mixing and churning delicious ice cream by hand, using milk from local cows.

His creations were lip-smackingly good. So good, he gave them his wife’s name, Jude. Soon the whole family joined in and he carried the first tubs across the field to the local pub, and they went down a treat...

Today top chefs can’t get enough of our scoops and we’ve bagged over 40 Great Taste Awards for our flavours.

There’s no stopping us. We use natural, great tasting ingredients in all our flavours. Our milk comes from Matterley Farm, just four miles down the road and the sea salt in our moreish Salted Caramel comes from Maldon in Essex.

We’re always experimenting with exciting new flavours and collaborations. Our mission is to knock your socks off, every time.

To craft brilliant ice cream, you need happy people. They’re one of the most important ingredients.

It’s always best when things happen naturally. Our founder was soon joined by his sons, their best friend and plenty more brilliant people.

We’re proud of the whole Jude’s family and love seeing it grow. We work hard together, have fun together and celebrate a job well done together.

We donate 10% of all our profits to charities that work with children and young people.

Cosy up, grab a spoon and tuck into your favourite Jude’s flavour. Or go wild and try a new one.
