Frutteto - Made in Italy, for the world


Frutteto is a 100% pure fruit frozen smoothie, free from dairy, gluten, refined sugars, preservatives and water. A vegan friendly snack produced and package in the heart of Italy, in its dedicated €1.5M state-of-the art manufacturing facility.

Unlike conventional ice-lollies, Frutteto freezes softly, giving it a very different texture. One of its unique characteristics is its ability to last at ambient temperatures for six months,  thus eliminating a cold supply chain. Frutteto aims to make food good again. 

It's not an ice cream, it's not a sorbet, it's... Frutteto!
