Naganuma Ice to launch in Singapore
Hokkaido soft serve ice cream franchise Naganuma Ice Co is opening in Singapore.
The brand is distinguished as the sole Hokkaido firm certified by the prefecture’s authorities for using raw Hokkaido milk in their ice cream products. The milk is sourced from ranch cows near Naganuma town before being transported immediately to the brand’s factory for low-temperature pasteurisation.
Naganuma’s three stores in Hokkaido and three in Taiwan regularly see hour-long queues for the ice creams, produced with the raw milk and eggs.
The new permanent outlet launches in December at Carlton City Hotel, with the exact date to be announced on the company’s Facebook page. In the meantime, a Naganuma Ice pop-up store will open in the basement of Isetan Scotts from November 23 to December 6 with rotating soft-serve flavours and 12 gelato flavours, including Singapore exclusives like the Creme Brulee Rich Milk Soft Serve and Black Lover Parfait.
