Ice Cream

Meiji started selling ice cream back in 1924. Since then, we've been offering ice cream with a balance of smooth textures and irresistible flavors for a wide range of customers. Our extensive lineup centers around the classic ice cream cup, Meiji Essel Super Cup—one of our best-selling products since its release in 1994. We also offer other products like the Meiji Essel Super Cup Sweet's, which expands the range of our frozen treats by adding a touch of decadent sweetness.

In China's growing ice cream market, Meiji has leveraged the technology and expertise developed in Japan to research local tastes and provide high-quality products. Both the Condensed Milk & Red Bean Frozen Confection and the Almond & Chocolate Frozen Confection lines win high praise from our customers in China.

Finding Success in China's Growing Ice Cream Market

At Meiji, we're always finding new ways to make our food delicious for everyone. So before we started selling ice cream in China in 1994, we asked locals about their favorite flavors. We came up with Condensed Milk & Red Bean Frozen Confection and Almond & Chocolate Frozen Confection. Our dedication to localizing tastes and preferences helped us double our production capacity when we built a new production base in 2020. Expect to see Meiji ice cream throughout all of China soon.
