For us, it is an affair of the heart, to be able to put a smile up on the faces of children or people who are not easily able to get our gelato. Fot that reason we are donating more than 2000 liters of gelato annualy to social projects, organiztions and associations. Besides that, we offer a limited number of ice crem vouchers every year.

We ask for your understanding that we do not sponsor in a traditional sense. (For example team jerseys, monetariyl etc.)
