The team

The most important assets of a business are the people who work within it.

What makes Freezeat work are our technicians, our food hunters, our workers, our chefs. They are invaluable to the company, but listing them all would go beyond the scope of this page.

When you consider importing our products, you'll be dealing with one of our three key people. They are the people without whom Freezeat would never have existed.

Here they are.

Corrado Giovanardi

Corrado Giovanardi

Founder, CEO, CFO
The core of administrative management

Corrado is the face of Freezeat for all administrative and financial matters.

Born in Maranello, since the beginning of his career involved in the family business, industrial production of ice cream, in recent years he has been the main architect of the growth of the company's sales all over the world.

Thanks to his strong entrepreneurial attitude, he was able to realize his dream of opening an American ice cream production plant, Casa del Gelato USA, in Florida.

Freezeat is his latest challenge to continue to grow the business in the USA, importing innovative frozen food from Italy and Europe.
