The new 50,000 sq ft factory will create a number of jobs, although the exact figure hasn’t been confirmed.

Howard Wong, who created the firm with sister Vivien, said: “The opening of a new factory in Kettering marks another key milestone for Little Moons as we look to expand our production line, following continued growth in the UK and globally.

"As pioneers of the ice cream snacking category, we’re only getting started and we have lots of exciting plans and new product development to share with shoppers.
