Irn Bru maker to produce own ice cream

Irn Bru maker AG Barr said it has launched into the ice cream market for the first time with a new range of tropical flavours under its Rubicon brand.

The group has started selling mango, passion fruit and lychee flavoured ice cream tubs and push-up lollies under ambitious plans to grow the tropical drink label. The Cumbernauld-based group reported a 6.2% rise in annual pre-tax profits to £33.6m helped by strong sales of its tropical brands.
