We have been working alongside the Royal Trust Collection to create a unique PLA ice cream tub to be given out in their wonderful ice cream trucks. This has been an ongoing project, and we are so pleased with the outcome and wanted to share it with all of you.
What are the tubs made of?
The ice cream tubs are made of PLA material, making them fully recyclable and compostable. PLA stands for polylactic acid and it is a vegetable-based plastic material consisting of renewable materials. However, even though they are PLA they are not shiny, they have a lovely matt finish to them.
Where will I find these tubs?
These tubs are going to be used to serve ice cream from the trucks placed around Windsor Castle and St James’s Palace. There is a 3oz and a 5oz ice tub, so you can either have 1 scoop or if you are feeling hungry get 2 or 3 with lots of toppings of course. Our favourite is a strawberry swirl with oreo pieces and white chocolate sauce on top, hmmm!
Who do I contact to create my own tubs?
You can either give us a call or send us an email. We love to create tubs like these or add custom food packaging stickers, the end product makes it all worthwhile. Our tubs are manufactured from heavyweight paperboard and are coated with PE on the interior (but can also be coated on the exterior). PE coating is proven to be an ideal barrier against frost, liquid and condensation. All printed ice cream tubs are produced to your specific requirements. But like the Royal Collection Trust, we can make them in PLA if requested.
So, if you are interested in making your own tubs just like this then give us a call and kick-start your summer with colour-branded ice cream tubs that people will remember!
