When you are looking to open a gelato parlour, training and continuous professional development are a prerequisite for success. Indeed, expertise is the key factor for any gelato artisan looking to stand out in such a highly competitive market.
The hand-made gelato sector provides plenty of training opportunities for gelato-makers from all walks of life, helping you to gain more experience and improve your ability to truly master the art of gelato-making. Training courses also aim to protect hand-made gelato by giving gelato-makers the tools and knowledge you need to make healthy, quality products that your consumers will enjoy.
Theoretical and practical lessons that focus on various topics – such as raw materials and ingredients, machinery and equipment, balancing techniques, marketing and communication. This all enables the professional gelato-maker to keep up with current trends and increase your understanding of hand-made gelato.
In addition to the different training schools for hand-made gelato-makers, every year there is an opportunity to learn and develop professionally at SIGEP (the International Handmade Gelato, Pastry, and Bakery Fair), the event where you can find all the gelato industries and various types of competitions for Italian and foreign gelato-makers, seeking to promote a culture of professionalism, research and experimentation.
Below is some information on the main organizations and companies that provide training courses for professional gelato makers.
