Our Tale ...

Once upon a time on the enchanting Land of Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Charlotte started her dreamland of sweets and treats and all things cheeky; Pilgrims Fudge Kitchen and Gelateria, in 2011. Then, in a swirl of fate, Cousin Farah joined her magical gelato adventure seven years later. Together, they embarked on a gelato odyssey that led them to the heart of gelato magic, Italy! It was here they perfected their gelato recipe and skills - bringing their knowledge and passion home to Holy Island!

But here’s the twist - their family had a curious mix of food quirks. So, armed with determination and a sprinkle of magic, Charlotte and Farah set out on a quest: creating seriously tasty vegan and gluten-free wonders. With a lot of hard work, determination and harnessing the power of oats, we created GelOato.  

But it didn't stop there and The Oat Kitchen was born, a realm where oats turn into all sorts of marvellous creations. From cookies that dance on your taste buds, brownies that melt in your mouth, to cones that hold dreams. Oh, and did we mention breakfast and protein bites that start your day with a high-five?

Their mission? To make something so incredible that when you take a bite, you’ll sit back and exclaim, “Now that’s remarkable!” So come, wander into the whimsical world of The Oat Kitchen, where every treat tells a tale of taste, love, and a pinch of oat-magic!


Plant a tree with us…

We’ve made it our mission to be as sustainable as possible, and as part of that we have decided to embed restoration into our business. For every 10 gelatos we sell we will donate 1 tree through the charity TreeSisters.

This means that every time your shop with us, as well as supporting a sustainable business you’ll help pay for a tree to be planted in the tropics (at no extra cost to you). TreeSisters offers unique global programs that focus on encouraging women’s leadership, nature-connection, and significant behaviour change.

They are funding the restoration of environments, biodiversity and communities within more than 10 major ecosystems around the tropics.
