Gelato d’Italia produces ice cream both under its own brand and for industry leaders and large-scale distribution.
It is a growing international company strongly committed to technological innovation.
The company is able to produce about 450 varieties of ice cream, thanks to the investment in cutting-edge technologies, capable of making the lines “multifunctional”.
In 2016, the Idea Taste of Italy fund entered the capital, favoring further international expansion.
The strong growth – turnover doubled in just 3 years and the creation of 150 new products in just one year – has made it necessary for Gelato d’Italia:
- extend the functional coverage of the system and safeguard the corporate information and experience assets
- standardize operational processes in all departments
- ensure greater control of the variables underlying the production processes, from procurement to warehouse management, from cost control to production planning.
Furthermore, it was essential for Gelato d’Italia that the project guaranteed implementation times compatible with the activities and growth.
