The Uno Gelato experience is built on three key pillars — our people, our ingredients, and sustainability. The greatest people in the world cannot make great gelato and sorbetto without great ingredients. Farm fresh, seasonal, locally grown, and organic are the hallmarks of our ingredients wherever possible. As a B.C. owned and operated company, we are proud to work with local farmers and suppliers like Avalon Dairy organic milk and cream from the Fraser Valley, Fraser Valley Hazelnuts from Chilliwack, Tesfa Farms Buffalo Milk from Langley, Krause Berry Farms berries and Vancouver Island Sea Salt, to name a few.
We limit our packaging use as much as is possible with a frozen, perishable product. In-store for sampling we use metal spoons, and we supply biodegradable, corn based spoons for takeout. For containers, customers have the option of a waffle cone or bowl or in a 100% recyclable paper cup container. Our pint packaging is in 100% recyclable paper cartons that are coated with a plant based bio resin polyethylene – made from renewable sugarcane. The paper itself is SFI custody chain certified from responsibly managed forests. (Unlike traditional ice cream cartons, which are made from non-recyclable polyethylene plastic based coated paper).
None of this would be possible without your support. Thank you for buying local!
