It was the summer of 2014, Jacopo and Filippo were on Portobello Road, heading to a dinner party. Like any true Italian, they wanted to bring some top-quality Gelato as a gift, because a great Gelato makes your taste buds happy, uplifts your mood and never makes your stomach cry!
It was the summer of 2014; Jacopo and Filippo were heading to a dinner party on Portobello Road. Like any authentic Italian, they wanted to bring some top-quality Gelato as a gift because a great Gelato makes your taste buds happy, uplifts your mood and never makes your stomach cry!
Easy enough, they thought…
Unfortunately, their mission was a little more complicated than they initially envisioned. Jacopo and Filippo couldn’t find authentic Italian Gelato in the gelaterias, let alone on the shelves of any good supermarkets. At that moment, the idea was born. They decided to create a Gelato brand that could reflect the experience of today’s finest Italian Gelato and the pleasure that comes with it, without any artificial additives, solely 100% natural ingredients. Thereupon, the name of this beautiful creation was decided; Remeo.
Today, we live in a world where multinational companies have commoditised the food industry. At the same time, there has never been as much emphasis on sourcing food, its preparation and what it does to us. More and more people are becoming aware of the changes occurring within the food industry and positively embracing this change.
We are entering a new paradigm, one that has quality, health, sustainability and our environment at its core.
THE ESSENCE OF REMEO
Remeo is Latin for I Return – return to the quality of nature.
THIS IS NOT AN ICE CREAM
Its Gelato. The finest Italian Gelato in a jar! Crafted in Italy with only natural ingredients, this authentic Gelato is made with a slow churn mantecazione process that uses less air and a little cream. Therefore, Remeo Gelato is naturally lower in fat and calories and has a smoother texture than regular ice cream. Due to the absence of artificial substances, the structure of our Gelato is more delicate and tends to melt quicker than traditional ice cream. The ideal serving temperature is below -10C and should not be refrozen to achieve the best-tasting experience. Beautifully kept in a transparent jar, our Gelato captures the essence of the Italian love for the beauty of life.
THIS IS NOT A FACE CREAM
Our jars were first created to preserve the taste and freshness best. However, we felt that this was not enough. Being obsessed with elegance and aesthetics, we worked with some of the finest Italian designers to craft our precious jars and provide you with an exclusive Gelato experience.
Remeo’s trademark jars result from 18 months of work with an artisan in the Italian Northeastern region of Veneto, a fashion designer, and a team of engineers. Inspired by luxury beauty products, we opted for transparent packaging that displays the purity of our products, in line with our ethos of all-natural ingredients.
But we know that beauty is not everything. Therefore, our jars are additionally fully recyclable, reusable, and more.
I AM NOT A VIRGIN
We are entering a new paradigm with quality, health, sustainability, and our environment at its core. Beauty won’t save the world. However, reducing plastic production will. That’s why we have decided to go beyond just beauty and design a jar that is not only beautiful but ceases to use virgin plastic.
Our jars are now made from 100% recycled plastic, while our lids are made from 100% plant-based sugarcane plastic. Why sugarcane, you may ask? Sugarcane is one of the most responsible sources of plastic. It doesn’t harm the planet, gets all its necessary resources to grow from natural rainfall, and actively regrows yearly, reabsorbing vast amounts of CO2. A truly magical, renewable material that will never run out.
YES, IT’S RECYCLABLE
While we are working strong on our mission to use 100% recycled plastic, we always remind our #GelatoLovers that our jars are 100% recyclable. Thus, the Gelato community can recycle our jars and all other plastic in their home! Additionally, bear in mind that our recycled jars and other plastic you may have around the house can be transformed into fleeces, t-shirts, furniture, children’s toys and… you guessed it… Gelato jars!
YES, IT’S REUSABLE
VIRGIN PLASTIC CAN STICK IT
When we created our Sorbetto sticks, we knew the challenge would be to develop a fully sustainable wrapper that could perfectly protect our precious Sorbetto sticks – without using any plastic. Our sticks are wrapped in a biodegradable wax-coated paper wrapping of our own creation, and we are very proud to be the only brand in the UK to do so. This is not a fruit lolly. It’s a sorbetto stick – and it’s 100% plastic-free.
