Gelavo is a vegan, lactose-free and environmentally-friendly ice-cream created by Curtin alumni Anthea Rodoreda and Andrew Tilly. The frozen dessert uses low-grade avocados, and contains many of the nutrients needed for a healthy diet. Anthea and Andrew completed the Curtin Accelerate program in 2018, which helped launch Gelavo from an idea into a product. Gelavo is now stocked in a variety of outlets in WA.
