Even if only one link in this chain is missing, it will upset the balance and jeopardise the development and success of gelato ice-cream. The fact that the system is entirely “Italian” not only makes it unique, but also often imitated: and as we know, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
The gelato production system bases its competitive edge and its value precisely on being Made in Italy and on the close ties which keep the various parts together. Each link in the chain has to ensure that the quality principles which have made gelato great are handed down to the next generation.
