The Position

Many Danes have a nostalgic relationship to the market leading Sun Lolly brand, which for 40 years has been the essence of summer like strawberries and beech bursting into leaf. Our two large Danish manufacturing sites run day and night throughout the entire year to accommodate the four months peak season, producing more than 180 million ice creams.
