South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies has paid tribute to Cowbridge-based Fablas Ice-Cream – after its chocolate ice-cream was named “overall supreme champion” at the Royal Welsh Show.
The gong was one of several awards the business – run by mother and daughter team Lauren and Michelle Evans – picked up at the show – as well as two gold and two silver medals.
The business – who last year opened an ice-cream parlour in Cowbridge town centre – is going from strength to strength – and Mr Davies congratulated Lauren and Michelle on their “well-deserved” awards.
Mr Davies said, “The food and drink industry is key to the economy of the Vale – and we are exceptionally fortunate to have a number of successful businesses like Fablas.
“Lauren and Michelle have worked exceptionally hard – and it is great to see them going from strength to strength.
“Their chocolate ice-cream is now officially the overall supreme champion in Wales – and this is no mean feat.
“Having tried their products many times I can say with certainty that it is fully deserved!
“I’d like to wish them all the very best for the future – and offer my deepest congratulations for the award.”
