Italian gelato has a rich heritage dating back hundreds of years and is hailed as the original ice cream. Developed and produced by their passionate and dedicated team in Italy since 2005, Joe Delucci’s award winning authentic gelato – the latest award being Bronze from this year’s Casual Dining Show for their new Blood Orange sorbet – is made with whole fruit and fresh, natural ingredients with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
The indulgent gelato is beautifully blended and freshly frozen in small batches in Italy before being transported to the UK. Joe Delucci’s offer over 30 flavours of the most remarkable Italian gelato and are constantly working to develop and produce more innovative flavours to add to their extensive range.
With the majority of flavours lower in fat (using milk, not cream) and with less air than regular ice cream, you can be assured of a mind-blowingly creamy texture. Served at a slightly higher temperature than ice cream, their dense gelato is soft on your taste buds leaving an intensive, long-lasting flavour of fresh, natural ingredients. Their appealing range of gelati and sorbetti is all vegetarian and includes non-dairy, gluten-free, fat-free and vegan flavours.
BRC accredited, Joe Delucci’s is the discerning choice for many leading chefs and is stocked by well-known restaurants, hotels, gastro pub groups, dessert parlours, garden centres and cafes through their nationwide wholesale food distribution network. It is served in Nando’s restaurants throughout the country and sold as 500ml tubs in Tesco – these include Vanilla and Strawberries & Cream as well as their signature flavour, Coconut.
For scooping operations, Joe Delucci’s offer a great start-up service with freezer options and point of sale items to help you in your launch. Choose from their many flavours to supplement your dessert menu and to create bespoke recipes. Joe Delucci’s is available in 5 litre Napolis, 2.5 litre tubs, 500ml pots and, recently launched, 120ml theatre tubs in their five top-selling flavours – Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Coconut and Mango.
