GELATO

OUR

OUR COMMITMENT

To make traditional, innovative, and locally sourced  flavours, as sustainably as possible.

Our journey began in Bologna, Italy, studying the traditional methods of gelato production. The goal, to create a world class gelato right here on Vancouver Island. The result is a mixture of traditional and innovative flavours, made fresh daily, drawing inspiration from Italy and the West-Coast. 

One important tradition is our commitment to as many local producers and artisans as we can.  We work hard to network and source what is growing, roasting, and brewing in our own community, to become a part of Vancouver Island's and BC's flourishing food culture.  Having this connection also allows us to nourish our bodies with the provisions of our local environment and enrich our understanding of where our food comes from.

 We are also committed to taking care of our planet. Many of our products are organic, Fair Trade, Equal Exchange, and/or sustainable.  And we use compostable gelato cups, spoons, coffee cups, sleeves, and lids!
