Our parents, John & Brigid, opened a small shop in Cookstown, Co Tyrone. The business grew. We’re still based in Cookstown but we now operate two large Spar convenience stores and of course, our Gelato wholesale business. In total we employ 85 staff. Our Gelato wholesale business supplies almost 50 outlets across Northern Ireland. Phew.
From the earliest days, we sold whipped and then scooped ice-cream. They were very popular. So in 2011 we started producing our own handmade Italian gelato.
We set to work perfecting our recipe, and began supplying our yummy gelato to other outlets in lots and lots of lovely flavours.
The result is a naturally delicious, affordable treat that can be enjoyed by anyone at any time.
Our gelato is made in the artisanal way, using authentic Italian ingredients and premium Irish milk and cream. That’s how we get the uniquely soft, deliciously velvety texture.
And we’re the only local company that still insists on doing things the hard way – by hand, not by the industrial method, which injects air and increases volume.
