Sustainable ice cream cone packaging – More awards for PaperFoam
Together with Frima Vafler from Denmark, PaperFoam was awarded the Bio-Based product of the year 2017 award. A great incentive! Congratulations to Frima! It’s great to see hard work pay off.
Frima has made a packaging solution that is far more sustainable than the one they had. They used EPS (Styrofoam) trays in a box to stack rows of ice cream cones.
The EPS solution was pretty light and strong but was not sustainable at all and it used up a lot of storage space. Frima and PaperFoam saw a solution to these problems: a sustainable, lightweight tray that saves space and is better for the protection of fragile cones.
A couple of comparisons before (EPS) and after (PaperFoam):
Waffle cones are porous and need to be packed dry. With PaperFoam we managed to develop a tray that did protect the Cones very well, and kept the freshness of the cones.
