Dessert and ice-cream packaging revolves around circularity and convenience

Oct 2021

The share of cardboard and carton packaging materials is relatively high in the desserts and ice cream category. The use of post-consumer content is growing, as well as more biodegradable or plant-based solutions. The focus is mainly on recyclability for single-serve products, which are often wrapped individually in plastic, while some are seeking alternatives to plastic such as paper wrappers.
