Dairy-free ice cream and other new ice cream recipes including almond milk ice cream and organic ice cream have seen a rapid growth in Canada, the Thai Trade Office in Toronto reported on July 11.

“Thai entrepreneurs should introduce new ice cream recipes to this market especially coconut ice cream as coconut products are very popular among consumers in North America. Other ice cream flavours such as Thai fruits and Thai desserts also have positive prospects in this market,” DITP Director-General Malee Choklumlerd said.

“When purchasing ice cream, Canadian consumers are concerned about the flavour and ingredients. They prefer premium ingredients and something new,” added Thanakrit Luangasnathip, Consul (Commercial) in Toronto.
