Bas Van Haaren, global gelato consultant, grew up in a pastry shop owned by his parents in the Netherlands. In 2002 his Gelato adventure began, when he started working in their local Gelato shop ‘Toetie Froetie’ in Breda. The Netherlands. There he discovered the beauty of the art of producing artisan Gelato.
After studying Marketing Management and a 3-year backpacking adventure around the world, he went to the Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna to increase his knowledge of Gelato. After working in various locations around the world, such as The Caribbean where he had the honor of serving his gelato to the Dutch Royal Family, he came back to Europe to work as a teacher for Carpigiani and so developed his consultancy company.
Today he’s assisting starting- and existing entrepreneurs in developing their recipes on a global scale.
