Simona Faroni Receives Top Women in Store Brands Innovation Award

Simona Faroni, President of G.S. Gelato & Desserts received the Innovation Award in the 2017 Top Women in Store Brands Program, presented by Women Impacting Store Brand Excellence (WISE) and Store Brands Magazine.

The award program was created to provide well-deserved recognition for female professionals who have achieved exceptional success and bring a passion for store brands to their day-to-day activities.

Simona won one of two achievement awards in this year’s categories: the innovation award. For a company that began with just two Italians with an American dream to bring authentic gelato to the United States, Simona and her husband Guido knew that with their love and passion, they would one day make a significant mark in the gelato industry. Between constant research and development, an eye for innovation, and a dedication to craft the best gelato on the market, the company’s main goal is to provide custom tailored programs and products to meet their customers’ desires and needs.

G.S. Gelato Announces Third Year Inc 5000 Ranking

G.S. Gelato’s Third Year Inc 5000 Ranking, An Accomplishment Made By Only 1 in 5 Companies

Every year, Inc. Magazine compiles applications from tens of thousands of companies for the chance to be named one of America’s fastest growing private companies. While only a fraction make the list, even fewer, 1 in 5 to be exact, make this list three times in a row, making G.S. Gelato’s third year Inc 5000 ranking a truly extraordinary achievement.

Making the list gets harder every year as the starting base of a company grows. While the economy grew only 6.7% during the last three years, G.S. Gelato enjoyed over 50% growth since 2013.

Since moving from Italy to the United States over twenty years ago, G.S. Gelato’s owners Guido and Simona have not enjoyed this growth by luck. Hard work, perseverance, determination and a unique passion for bringing authentic Italian gelato to America was the driving force behind their success.

G.S. Gelato’s third year Inc. 5000 ranking is due to those very solid pillars of success, along with innovation in flavors and packaging, as well as unparalleled support and customization for G.S. Gelato’s foodservice and retail private label customers. In a rapidly evolving market, staying on top of new trends and standards is of upmost importance to continued growth, for both the company and their clients.

Offering a variety of new products, like their new clean label pints for store brands and wholesale clubs, and “smart snack” mini cups for hospitals and schools keeps G.S. Gelato at the forefront of the market as the leader in foodservice and retail private label gelato manufacturing.
