Motion text

That this House congratulates Alastair Dobson, Managing Director of Taste of Arran and Arran Dairies, on being presented the Marvin Benton Award, a lifetime achievement award, for services to the ice cream industry; recognises that the award, presented by the sector's trade association, the Ice Cream Alliance, is in recognition of Mr Dobson's achievements during a 23-year career in the sector and is the highest honour that the ICA can bestow; notes that Arran Dairies use only milk and cream from the island’s own dairy herds to hand-produce Italian style ice cream, free from artificial flavouring or colouring; acknowledges the skill and dedication of the team at Arran Dairies, and its passion for quality local produce; and commends Mr Dobson’s commitment to supporting not just the ice cream industry, but to promoting the fantastic array of quality food and drink produced on Arran.
