We at giapo gelato are doing it again, something never seen before. Something you can get involved with.
You might have been hinted with our tagline on twitter and facebook.
This is a first in the world apparently. Never has an ice cream gelato maker dared this much.
“Have you got a fruit tree in your, your neighbours or relatives back yard? Do you know of someone who from time to time has fruit going to waste simply because they can’t use it all?”
The idea is that we wanted you to participate with us and from now on Giapo gelato will be kicking off “Giapo Certified Organic”.
We have been doing it for a little while, but it is time to now to make it official and for everybody. It is a non sum zero transaction. Everybody wins. This is something a little different, if you can access fruit that has been growing without herbicides or pesticides, that have not been treated with chemicals, where the soils is as pure as it can be.. we want to hear from you !
To be eligible to be considered you’ll have to guarantee that your or your immediate neighbors, have not used any herbicides or pesticides within the growing area of their fruit. To guarantee the quality, we will be randomly testing samples through a specialist lab to ensure compliance with this requirement.
In return for fruit given and for being part of the Giapo ‘economy’ you’ll be be compensated in free giapo gelato, being part in a true barter process. The price your fruit will be marketed will be today’s market price “in giapo dollars.”
To participate and get your sign tag with your orchard picture and your name on the display.. we will need some minimum quantity from you.
And you’ll have to complete a simple disclosure and application form, which are available at Giapo, Queen St, Auckland, or online here:
or email us at email@example.com . and we will tell you what to do..
Important, this is solely “Giapo Certified Organic” and is a private ‘certification’ and has no bearing on certification by any organisation, it is based on TRUST and LOVE. I hope you appreciate.
