Lawai, Hawaii — Nov. 7, 2014 — National gelato company Papalani Gelato Franchise Operating Company, LLC is pleased to announce the release of a new organic sorbet product.


Papalani Gelato®, the first national gelato brand to offer organic products free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), is releasing a new line of organic sorbetto. Sorbetto is a dairy-free, gluten-free, GMO-free and vegan dessert made only with real fruit and wholesome natural ingredients. Our sorbettos are dairy free, gluten free, and full of flavor.


Smooth, silky and soft, sorbetto contains very little air, which gives it a dense, creamy, “ice-free” consistency.

You can see all the flavors offered of organic and conventional flavors at Our Sorbetto Page.
