Are San Bernardo products made with sustainable resources?

At San Bernardo we strive to source our ingredients from as many sustainable sources as possible. We're continually changing to improve our resources and ingredients with each generation of our products. 

Here are some of the measures we've taken:

  • The production facility for all our products is RSPO certified for palm oil sustainability.
  • Our Cocoa suppliers have published sustainability programs and/or fair trade certifications.
  • Our coffee suppliers follow the Saiz Sustainability Program and/or fair trade. We have documentation from each of their websites, verifying their commitment to sustainability and to fair trade.

Do you have any gluten-free products?

We are not, however a gluten-free facility.  We follow good manufacturing practices to eliminate potential cross contamination between allergen and non-allergen containing flavors, and take necessary precautions to avoid cross-contamination. If a flavor contains an allergen, we declare it on our ingredient list. 

Everyone's allergy sensitivity is different but since we are not a gluten-free facility, even if the products do not contain gluten, we cannot formally make that claim because we do not test them after production to get them certified as gluten free, 



Many of our wholesale ice creams, frozen yogurts, sorbets and toppings are gluten-free by ingredients. Please check with us for more details if you wish to purchase wholesale info@sbicecream.com

Do you have any dairy-free flavors?

We offer three flavors of sorbet in single serve portions in fruit shells, which you can find in the Grab a Spoon Section under desserts.  Other than that, we only sell dairy-free sorbet in wholesale quantities at this time and we are not a dairy-free facility.

If you wish to discuss wholesale dairy-free options, please reach out by emailing us info@sbicecream.com

Is your facility nut-free?

Unfortunately,  we are NOT a nut-free facility, but we do follow strict allergen protocols.  Some of our ice cream products do contain peanuts and/ or tree nuts. We follow good manufacturing practices to eliminate potential cross contamination between allergen and non-allergen containing flavors, and take necessary precautions to avoid cross-contamination. If a flavor contains an allergen, we declare it on our ingredient list. 

Are your products natural and organic?

While there is no formal or official definition of "natural", we adhere to Whole Foods, Sprouts and Earth Fare food ingredient standards if our Signature Escapes Collection.

None of our products at this time are made with organic dairy unfortunately, but check back in case we're able to change that in the future!
