To make a successful ice cream logs you need the right ingredients and good tools.


PVC log moulds by Matfer are designed to be easy to remove after freezing; this is a key point for providing a beautiful finish and perfectly smooth contours.

Another big benefit is that the moulds feature a pair of drip trays. So, when you put them together you can have up to four drip trays on a tray or a 600 x 400mm grid. These log moulds reduce handling increase your productivity and allow for bulk storage in the run-up to the festive season so that you can be ready for the rush.
