Supporting international ice cream making


Antonelli is once again a proud sponsor of ‘Gelato in the Square’. Run by one of our customers ‘Gelato Village’ based in Leicester, this year the event is showcasing six leading gelato makers including experts from New York and Sicily.

“These are master craftspeople whose creations reflect seasonality, local produce, folk memory and food heritage.”

Whether you are interested in complex flavour profiles, or experiments with savoury flavours this event will be sure to inspire you to create some new gelato flavours for your cabinet. If you are then looking at how to balance your own recipe using your local ingredients then do contact Antonelli to help advise you. As a forward thinking organisation our National Technical Manager is always happy to help advise you. What’s more the Antonelli Gelato Academy provides purpose built facilities to enable us to run training courses and demonstrations suited to all levels of experience and gelato making knowledge. We provide technical gelato making support for new start ups right through to experienced gelateria owners looking for advanced techniques and ideas. These demonstration and training sessions can be held for small groups or on a One 2 One basis depending on your requirements. For a full list of courses and support available see our specialist ice cream training website.

This is the second year that Antonelli has sponsored this event as a provider of all the waffle cones and printed wafers. As many of you will know our own heritage goes back over 100 years. For more details on the story of our history see our About Us pages. We have been ice cream cone manufacturers and key providers to the UK ice cream and gelato industry through many changes; war, recession, the millennium and consolidation in the industry to name a few. As a fourth generation family business we are committed to investing in the industry and inspiring others to create great ice cream and gelato. We are only too well aware of the pressures and demands faced by our customers, these days often caused by trends in social media, environmental concerns or increased dietary awareness.

“Antonelli is proud to be associated with Gelato in the Square not only are they passionate about gelato, but their altruistic approach to the promotion of this “slow food” treat for all is without compare in the UK.” Mark Antonelli, Sales & Technical Director
