The Sorbet UK Story

Dear Sorbet community

As you may be aware, the Sorbet business in the UK has ceased trading.  At the time, it was felt that the UK initiative would mirror the success of Sorbet South Africa, but unfortunately it proved to be a tough trading and operating environment.

It is extremely important to note that Sorbet UK is an entirely separate and independent business and has absolutely nothing to do with the Sorbet South African business.

In a nutshell:

  • Sorbet South Africa has no shareholding or financial interest in the Sorbet UK business
  • The UK business was not managed by Sorbet South Africa
  • Sorbet SA has no financial exposure to Sorbet UK and has suffered no financial loss
  • Sorbet South Africa is in the best financial shape it has ever been since inception and continues with exceptional growth together with its Franchisee community and citizens

We are confident that sometime in the future we will take the Sorbet feeling to other parts of the world.

Quite simply, it’s business as usual for Sorbet South Africa. Rest assured, we will continue to deliver head-to-toe confidence to all our guests across South Africa.

Many thanks and best regards

Ian Fuhr  – Founder of Sorbet
