Quintessential Cape Town: No compromise on quality at Gattis Ice Cream

Gattis Ice-cream is one of South Africa's oldest home-grown ice cream manufacturers based in Cape Town. It is a family business, founded by the Hanerkar's in 1964 and currently being run by the third generation of the family.

Zameer Hanerkar, key accounts manager at Gattis, says affordability and quality has kept this brand a success for many years.

Gattis started with only three flavours and now they have over a hundred different products.

Making sure we deliver and we are affordable to every person around, and offer them a good quality product, that's what Gattis is all about.

As of last year, Gattis is available in major retail stores nationwide and employs 300 people across South Africa.

Because it is a family business, everyone in the family gets to contribute on new flavours and new ideas to improve the business and offer best customer service to clients, says Hanerkar.
