In 2003, along with the impressive infrastructure development of Qatar, Colosseum opened its factory to produce Dolce D’Oro, which is Italian gelato made right here in Qatar, sherbets and ice cream cakes.
The opening of the factory started out in order to support the local food production industry to support the local food production. With support from Qatar Development Bank, Colosseum Deli became one of the few businesses that helped in creating a ‘Made in Qatar’ environment, resulting in better developed infrastructure in the food production industry.
