Daily News Egypt honoured Dolato Gelateria as the most influential innovative food and beverage company. The award was received by Youseef Elhout GM of Dolato Gelateria. The inaugural Daily News Egypt annual summit and DNE Awards were held on 15 March at St. Regis Cairo Hotel.
Dolato started in 2019, and like every business, it started with a dream, Fortunately, Dolato’s dream was well-researched, because they knew what the customers wanted, what was missing in the market and they focused on what they could add that could be extra and different.
When COVID-19 hit and resulted in a pandemic that paralyzed many types of markets, but, even then Dolato survived and thought of creative ways that could assure their customers that they can still enjoy delicious gelato from the comfort of their homes and with the utmost safety.
In almost two years, they created a mentionable amount of brand loyalty that exceeded expectations, due to creating high quality, all-natural, 100% Italian products that differ from others, opening branches in almost every significant area in Egypt and finally, a huge amount of positive feedback from our customers that keeps us going and growing every day.
It’s fair to say that Dolato is trying to change the dessert world one scoop at a time.
The summit and awards were held under the auspices of the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, and the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board (ETPB).
The summit, titled “Leadership in Times of Crisis”, addressed the economic reform process in Egypt, and it shed light on the deals, ideas, and visions that have made a difference in all fields. Additionally, DNE Awards honoured the most influential people and firms in Egypt during 2022/23.

Daily News Egypt has become the most favourable newspaper among the country’s elites, thinkers, politicians, and economists. Over the past 18 years, which is the age of the paper, Daily News Egypt has succeeded in setting new standards in the Egyptian press market.
It presented a model that is now followed by many in the market, through the credibility it built in its reporting. This credibility springs from the separation between its editorial line and advertising in the newspaper, as well as its impartiality in delivering news and information, without any bias in favour of any particular trend or current.
That’s why Daily News Egypt shed light on success stories in Egypt, at a time when people are looking for inspiration.
The DNE Awards & Summit also provided a platform to listen to the leaders who challenged crises and overcame several obstacles. They will tell the story of how they became the most influential and difference-makers in their fields, and this is by honouring them and showcasing their experiences.
