Our story

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.

Our commitment

We value using as many local producers and artisans as much as we can. We work hard to network and source what is growing, roasting, and brewing in our community to become a part of Vancouver Island's and BC's flourishing food culture.  

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