COLOSSEUM DOHA W.L.L
Colosseum Doha was founded in 1999 to bring the heart of Italy production and the true taste of historical tradition. For more than 20 years we have been studying, working, improving ourselves to reproduce all the excellence of our country and its culinary roots.
The Company’s mission is to be the food artisan for the masses. In other words, we are a modern industry with an artisan heart: we organize production processes that ensure required market quantities with the care of a chef producing unique products for individual customers, thus combining the knowledge of quality ingredients and their proper use to produce excellent products for mass consumption. Also, we retain the flexibility to customize any flavor upon the customers’ requirements.
Our passion for excellence has been driven by the dedication of our employees, most of them with the company for over 10 years. This spirit of loyalty and professionalism, together with our unique know-how, are the foundations upon which we built our name in the market.
Today we continue to expand our products’ range at a fast pace, either our own production and import goods.
Our own products include: Al Forno, hand-rolled and stone-baked frozen pizza; Dolce D’Oro, gelato and sherbets made as traditional Italian ice cream parlors; Pasta Roma, hand-made fresh pasta.
Our import goods include various products (mainly Italians), which are historical and quality brands: Granarolo, Costa D’Oro, Riso Scotti, Gioiella, D’Amico.
Our philosophy is that no matter what the product, the quality, and taste should never be compromised.
This mission is achieved by following the Italian tradition of choosing only the best quality ingredients while focusing on strict hygiene standards and production processes. Our quest for the highest quality has been attested by the HACCP certification, in addition to frequent audits by the local Municipality and multinational customers.
Part of quality excellence is not only the selection of ingredients and professional workers, but also the process. We invested in production quality controls since 2001, when we have been selected to supply gelato to the USA forces in Iraq. This has obliged us to acquire HACCP certification and enter into the never-ending process of improving the production processes, which will lead us to more certifications in the near future.
