GELATI-DA® is a proprietary brand of Gelati Co., a Minnesota corporation originally founded in 1982 and re-founded again after an 8-year hiatus in 1995, both times by David Cannon, a "Maestro Gelatiere" (Master class Italian ice cream maker) since 1985, and Twin Cities (MN) native.
After first being exposed to gelato as a college student travelling extensively in Italy the summer of 1975, in November 1981, David trained exclusively with two, Italian Guild Master gelato makers from Treviso, Italy. During the past 29 years, he has developed and perfected well over 150 flavors of “gelato” (ice cream) and “sorbetto” (non-dairy, real fruit water ices). Gelati Co. is currently a closely-held, privately-owned, Minnesota Corporation dedicated to developing, manufacturing and marketing highest quality, lower fat/calorie authentic Italian dairy and non dairy-based frozen confections and novelties to our consumers and foodservice customers in the US and future select global markets.
An important and integral part of Gelati Co.'s overall mission is to give back to the communities in which it serves. The Company has and will continue to support charitable organizations that directly fund children’s physical/mental health, disease research and adult cardiovascular research. Our corporate charitable involvement most often takes the form of donations of free product and labor which are utilized by these worthy organizations in their fundraising efforts.
