Koolwerkz Frozen Dessert

Hey everyone! How's your Raya going? Busy I know but surely enjoyable!
Well, here's some light reading for you while in transit and some useful information about something The Halal Food Blog is very happy to support!

Koolwerkz has been around since 2005 and it's a wonder we'd never heard of it sooner.
So what is it exactly they do? Well, they make forzen desserts namely - Ice Cream!!
And what's special about Koolwerks anyways?

For starters, Koolwerkz is actually set-up and run by Temasek Polytechnic!
That's right! This is actually an off-campus manufacturing plant (the first of its kind in Singapore) that gives students a chance to have a hands-on experience! And it's not limited to just TP students either.

And since it's run by the students, this means that pretty much everything comes from their own minds and hard work. The designing of the packaging, the labour in making the ice cream, the packing and the storing - all done by the students!

Students hard at work
By putting the students in charge, this provides broad based entrepreneurship and food manufacturing training for students across various disciplines just like I mentioned earlier.

For now, they make 4 flavours - Dark Chocolate, French Vanilla, Strawberry and Mango!
Pretty fancy right! Not bad if I do say so myself!

I actually got to sample the Strawberry Ice Cream FRESH off the belt and it was the bomb!
Okay so I guess the fact that Strawberry is my favourite ice-cream flavour plays a big part but I also tried the Dark Chocolate and it was good too!

Just one catch though - you can't really buy these commercially for now.
But don't worry - there are other ways you can get your hands on these ice-creams! How?
Well, if you have an event or a school function, why not get these ice-creams for the event?

Sports Day? Open House? Charity Event? Wedding? Birthday Party? The list goes on!
Basically you can have some great ice-cream at your event while supporting this student-run project!
And it's not going to cost you a bomb!

And in case you were still wondering about the ice-cream itself, not only is it yummy, but it's also healthy too! Less fat, less sugar, lower calories, less cholesterol, no trans-fat. It's even got the Health Promotion Board's 'Healthier Choice' logo there! And of course - certified Halal by MUIS!

So why not show some support and have some great ice-cream at the same time.
If you have any enquiries or if you'd like to place an order, you can contact Ms Fatin Lyana via email at flyana@tp.edu.sg or call her at 67804005.

If you want to arrange for a site visit Koolwerks (it'd be a really cool excursion!!) then please contact Mr Wong Yoon Chron at wongyc@tp.edu.sg or 67806429.

Just be prepared to use a hair net! (Yes, I had to wear one!)

So remember to check Koolwerkz out and try them the next time for your event okay!
Support the students!!
