ABOUT FWIP

fwip, the “world’s smallest gelateria”, is one of the UK’s most exciting frozen dessert brands. With 13 coveted Gold Stars from the Great Taste Awards, fwip has invented the world’s first smart-connected ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato and sorbet machine – the Portobello. fwip controls the entire value chain to deliver an outstanding customer experience that begins at the cow and ends on the cone. And with your help, fwip’s products can be sold everywhere the sun shines.


Most companies laud their secret recipes, fancy innovations, or even luck as the reason behind their success. At fwip, while we eat too much frozen yogurt, have some pretty funky innovations and believe that the harder we work the more luck we seem to have, the secret sauce that has us going strong into our 9th year is our people.


The company is growing rapidly and we are looking for high-energy team players to help drive our success. The company is headquartered in West London (North Acton - central line), and also has an office in Munich, Germany.
