Ice Cream Mama bagged the second prize at the recently held World Gelato Summit Contest in Dubai. Promoted by the Italian Cuisine World Summit, this year’s competition saw 16 participants from all over the world including 5-Star International Hotels and Food and Beverage Chains competing to make the best and highest quality of gelato.
The 100% Omani SME was one of the five finalists chosen from the qualifying rounds and competed along the likes of hoteliers such as Atlantis, Palm Dubai.
Represented at the competition by the original founder and co-owner, Rami Al Lawati, was elated by the results of the competition. “To come in second place against such tough and well established competition, it’s amazing. I gave our Gelato the essential Omani touch and that’s what made it so perfect”, said Rami Al Lawati. On plans about introducing the Gelato line of ice creams to their current portfolio, Rami mentioned, “We’re studying it and considering to serve at least the winning recipe (Frankincense flavored Gelato topped off with Omani Halwa) for the time being.”
Ice Cream Mama serves 21 flavors of their classic and variety-filled ‘Mama Originals’ and their recently launched lines, ‘Mama Softey’ and ‘Mama Yougurts’. Each of them can be topped off with over 20 topping options such as Chocolate, Ferrero, Pistachio etc.
The company now has 3 branches in Muscat – Shatti Al Qurum (next to the cinema), Qurum (on the PDO road), Mawalah South (Oman Oil petrol pump). The proud Omani SME is soon to also set up shop in Al Khuwair 42 and 18th November Street.
