Guido Tremolini, President & Co-Founder of G.S. Gelato, was recently inducted into the Private Label Industry Hall of Fame – Class of 2023 in the Private Brand Innovator Award Category on behalf of PLMA (Private Label Manufacturers Association) and Store Brands magazine.

For almost three decades, grocery retailers around the nation have entrusted Guido and the rest of the G.S. Gelato team for their quality, attention to detail, and full freedom to formulate anything they are challenged with in regards to gelato, sorbetto, and non-dairy frozen desserts. Guido is a pioneer in bringing authentic gelato and sorbetto to the U.S. and continues to offer an unparalleled level of innovation to the frozen dessert category to this day.

“I am extremely humbled to be inducted into the hall of fame,” says Guido Tremolini. “When we moved from Italy to Fort Walton Beach, FL in 1996, we didn’t know a word of English and no one knew what gelato was! This is a testament to how far we’ve come. I am truly honored and grateful for our team for their hard work and dedication to always crafting the best products for our clients.”

Since its inception in 2006, more than 70 industry leaders have been enshrined in the Hall of Fame, in recognition of their invaluable contributions to the industry. Guido and the rest of the 2023 inductees were officially initiated into the Hall of Fame at PLMA’s 2023 Annual Meeting and Leadership Conference.
