Chef Dylan Ooi

Founder & Owner

The R&D engineer whom was developing iphone lenses stationed in Zurich, Switzerland, Dylan Ooi discovered the goodness of Italian gelato on his vacation in 2007 at Como Lake, Northern Italy.

The intense punch of flavour, silky smooth texture and low fat healthier choice of frozen dessert in the mouth of a home-sick boy far away from his family and home, created a new aspiration for Dylan.

Borned in Penang, Malaysia and grew up in Singapore since his teenage years, the Asian food and flavours contribute greatly to his homesickness. With that, Dylan was determined to master the techniques of making gelato with representative flavours of each Asian country.

Having spent years and extensive financial investment to research on formulating the perfect balance of gelato on each different flavour. Ge!ato officially opened to Singapore's market in 2010, winning the market with a strong mandate on its quality and innovation on products, thus expanding vastly throughout Asia.

Today, Dylan is a multiple award winning gelato master, a brand ambassador to a more than a century old Italian company producing gelato making ingredients, a gelato consultant chef to many entities in Asia and the owner of a gelato production company “Stellamarina”

Holding on to the integrity of feeding consumers the best of what can be offered, Stellamarina strived at the commitment to keep their ingredients premium, natural and authentic.
