IFI has been setting the pace of change in food & beverage furnishings and fittings since 1962. At Gelato World Tour, IFI brings artisan gelato specialists the biggest range yet that is available on the market, with groundbreaking innovations such as ventilated pozzetti, the Hi-performance Closure System (HCS) for display cabinets, and TONDA, the world’s first rotating circular display cabinet (selected as an ambassador of Italian industrial design by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs). IFI has won the Oscar of design (Compasso d’Oro ADI) with BELLEVUE, the perfect synthesis between the visibility of gelato in the traditional display cases, and the perfect preservation of the pozzetti counters. In 2015, IFI launched ACADEMIA IFI, aimed at training top level professional figures.
