When it comes to the technical science of gelato-making, Italian manufacturers stand unparalleled. After all, gelato is an Italian invention. At Harlan's, we are proud to represent the world's finest gelato equipment. We are the appointed distributors for industry leaders such as Carpigiani, Cattabriga, and Compacta—renowned for their batch freezers and pasteurizers—as well as Sevel display cases. These companies set the standard for technology and reliability in gelato equipment. Ensuring you start with the right equipment is our commitment to you.


Gelato ingredients are comprised of base mix powders, flavor pastes or fruit purees, blended with sugar and mixed with milk or water. Compromising on the quality of your primary ingredients only serves to diminish the quality and shelf life of the finished product. For these reasons, Harlan's proudly represents Aromitalia and MEC3, two of the finest gelato ingredients companies in the world. For authentic and delicious gelato without compromise, we have you covered.


Once you have selected the right equipment and finest product, now what? Harlan's is not your typical equipment or product distributor. We understand that the most crucial aspect in the art and science of gelato is the knowledge and grasp of how to produce it properly; equipment and product get you only halfway. We employ a fully trained and qualified gelato specialist / technician who take the time to train you in the proper operation of the equipment and more critically, how to make artisanal gelato. He has over 15 years' experience in this field. Jose Carvalho is a gelato master and former gelato business owner who can comfortably train in any of four languages (English, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese). Training can be done in one of our centers or in your business location; what is equally important is that once you have been trained, we are a phone call or visit away whenever you require assistance or tips. In other words, we have you covered!
