The authentic Italian gelato?

The authentic Italian gelato?

It comes from Turin, ready-to-serve and HALAL certified

From its beginnings in the 1980s in a two-Michelin-starred restaurant, to restaurants, hotels and ice cream parlors around the world, founder Luca Grassi recounts the rise of Menodiciotto.

In the world of Italian gelato, one name stands out as synonymous with high quality among HORECA professionals: Menodiciotto.

A company with over 37 years of history and passion for gelato, which has expanded its presence around the world over the years.

“We started in 1986 in a two-Michelin-Starred restaurant in Turin, experimenting with unique recipes to create perfect gelato and sorbets,” recalls Grassi. Quality has always been at the core of the company’s philosophy: “We use fresh milk from our own dairy farm, fresh fruit, and freerange eggs.”

But beyond quality, there is much more.

“We have a wide selection of HALAL flavors, with 18 certified flavors and the possibility to request certification for most of the other flavors. We think of all our customers, with a special focus on the Arab market,” says Grassi.

Now present in over 15 countries worldwide, Menodiciotto products guarantee a shelf life of 18 months and offer various packaging options to meet different needs, such as 5 liter and 2.5 liter tubs.

“We don’t just produce gelato; we provide comprehensive support to our customers and partners, including free online sales training and presentation techniques for ice cream parlors and restaurants, personalized brochures, and customized gelato and sorbet menus for hotels and restaurants,” explains Luca Grassi.

 “We are always available with our team to provide assistance and advice,” Grassi adds, concluding, “For restaurateurs, hotel managers, distributors, or ice cream shops that want to offer to their customers an excellent product from every aspect, we provide an experienced consultant who is always ready to satisfy any inquiries.”
