Gelare was formed in 1986 with the opening of its original store in Fremantle, Western Australia. This outlet attracted both locals and tourists with its outstanding ice cream that some say that Gelare ice cream was like no others. The Gelare Business has expanded its range to include freshly bake waffles and ice cream cones. These products are supported with quality coffee, smoothies and a variety of cold beverages that make Gelare the perfect place to treat yourself. Gelare is an Italian word which means to freeze or congeal, the final step in the ice cream process, Gelati or Gelato are the generic Italian words for “ice cream” but in reality are actually ice milk products with low cream content Any company can sell a version of “Gelato”, or use the word as part of their name but there is only one Gelare – a federally trademarked name which can only be used with our products. Gelare is unique because it is much creamier and thicker than Italian ice cream. It is also much heavier, creamier and more intensely flavoured than American ice cream. Gelare is an improved “hybrid” ice cream combining and also exceeding the best qualities from both countries. Gelare Ice Cream is made with no air, while other ice creams contain as much as 50% air. Early on the manufacture of commercial ice cream, people found that they could double their ice cream yield by fluffing the product with air. The ice cream looked the same to the unwary customer but the fact could easily contain as much air as ice cream.
