GET TO KNOW US EVEN MORE

Our concept is a mirror of the cultural identity of the island and although its prevailing imprint is the Italian one, it does not fail to offer flavours that reflect a multiethnic and cosmopolitan culture.

SOTTOZERO The Gelato Factory is an ice cream shop founded in 2006 and today one of the most popular in Malta. Throughout these years, we have been striving to invest in our brand and diversify in new product lines whilst keeping the quality artisan product as our primary focus.

Our company founder, born in Italy in Viserba, to an Italian father and Maltese mother, lived in Italy until the age of three and then moved to Malta. His mother’s great passion for cooking, born from the fusion between the Maltese and the Romagna ones, soon spurred him to deal first with gastronomy and then with ice cream.

ABOUT US

In our first ice cream shop, a few steps from Bugibba Square in MALTA, our story started, made of sacrifices and commitment but also of important achievements.

In 2006 we opened our first outlet which focused on artisan ice cream and from then onwards, the name SOTTOZERO The Gelato Factory was created and continued to flourish. Since then, training and innovation never stopped with different renowned organizations in Italy, namely Carpigiani, Giampaolo Valli, Alice Vignoli and Paolo Luccheti?.

Sottozero The Gelato Factory started off with 24 classic and fruit flavours, to later added trendy flavours such as Mars, Snickers, Sorpresa and Kinder. After further investment, a new dedicated laboratory was set up exclusively for the preparation of gluten-free ice cream. The Maltese Celichia Association has helped the brand in this process and today, by our choice, most of our ice creams are gluten-free.

Today, SOTTOZERO The Gelato Factory offers a range of 140 flavours, which rotate on a weekly basis with 40 different flavours constantly on display. The SOTTOZERO family made sure to keep abreast with the trends and have the largest selection of gluten-free, sugar-free and lactose-free, vegan and fat-free ice cream. Let’s not forget about our renowned granita which is made from Maltese fresh fruits, delivered on a daily basis from local farmers.
