“Vegallia is a way of life, not just an ice cream,” says Corina Jimenez, co-founder of the business. She found the need to create an Italian gelato style ice cream that was healthy and made especially for vegans, without the guilt of added sugars or dairy ingredients. Corina began her journey in 2013 with the creation of the perfect ice cream formula for vegans. Since then, their flavor offerings have expanded to include dark chocolate, French vanilla, coconut, mango, wild berries, creamy lime and banana.
Corina’s passion for her health conscious product brought her to Prospera seeking business guidance. Collaborating with her business consultant, Vegallia was awarded a grant for a legal assessment. She later received a grant for an accounting assessment that provided her with a better understanding of the numbers behind her business.
Corina’s commitment and hard work is paying off. Vegallia received the Vegan, Non-GMO and Kosher certifications. They have also expanded their distribution to locations outside of Florida, in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
You can indulge in these delicious ice creams by purchasing the product in specialty stores throughout South Florida or placing orders via their website. For more information on the business or to taste their products, visit www.vegallia.com and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
