 Press Releases

  • FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    8 March 2019
    Fort Walton Beach, FL​

    G.S. Gelato, a U.S. manufacturer of artisanal gelato and sorbet for foodservice and retail has recently added nine new flavors to their collection that were Certified Vegan in January 2019 by the Vegan Action/ Awareness Foundation. They are made with plant-based coconut milk and contain no artificial ingredients. As with all certified products, they do not contain dairy, other animal by-products, or GMOs.

    “At G.S. Gelato we are constantly researching, testing and formulating the best products for our customers,” says Cameron Lewis, Research & Development Manager of G.S. Gelato. “With a rapidly growing vegan population, it was only natural to offer certified flavors that can be easily recognized by the iconic symbol. Our goal was to create a plant-based product without sacrificing the premium quality and taste that all our flavors possess. The result was a smooth and creamy product just like the gelato and sorbet that we have been crafting for over twenty years.”

    The demand for vegan products has quickly been growing and shows no signs of stopping. As the fastest growing segment in the ice cream market, vegan ice cream is predicted to be worth $2.45 billion by 2027.

    G.S. Gelato’s Certified flavors include Caramel Sea Salt, Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate, White Mint Chocolate, Vanilla, Cold Brew Coffee, Cookies No Cream and Chocolate. All are available as branded and private label products for the retail/grocery industry. The latter three are available for both retail and foodservice.

    Our Cold Brew Coffee Frozen Dessert is made with premium espresso and oat milk or coconut milk! Certified Vegan, this product contains no dairy, gluten, trans-fat, or artificial ingredients. Winner of the 2019 FABI Award!...

  • G.S. Gelato’s Plant-Based Cold Brew Coffee Frozen Dessert is an afternoon pick-me-up treat for all to enjoy – guilt-free! This indulgent flavor is made with oat milk, a popular product in Europe that is quickly rising in the United States as well. Our oat milk frozen dessert allows for a those with lactose intolerance, dietary restrictions and the growing vegan/flexitarian population to enjoy a frozen indulgence they would normally avoid. With Millennials constantly on the lookout for dairy-free innovations, non-dairy increased 22% in sales over last year in retail, significantly more than any other ice cream category. With unique flavors driving growth in both the retail and foodservice, this flavor is sure to please those looking for the perfect balance of traditional and unique. Made with premium espresso from Colombia, this exciting twist on a classic among the generations shows no signs of slowing down. According to the National Coffee Association, market penetration of cold brew coffee rose to 21% among coffee drinkers in 2017, up from 15% in 2015. The non-dairy alternative combined with the rising popularity of cold brew coffee makes it an exciting and unique offering on any menu – appealing to the entire population for its “better-for-you” properties and amazing taste. It is so smooth & velvety that those who try it can’t believe it is dairy free! Infused with a bold yet delicate coffee flavor, the harmonious union of the plant-based milk and exquisite coffee makes it truly surprising that this is a non-dairy frozen dessert instead of a super-premium ice cream.
