Becky Osborne, Founder and CEO at Fravocado explained: "Having a truly sustainable brand is key in the 21st century. We've created a wonderful product that not only tastes good but offers a viable allergen free alternative to dairy.
"Our ice cream is 100% plant-based and gluten, nut and soya free. But until now our packaging wasn't recyclable, so we asked a local print firm, Newton Print, to help us develop a sleeve to replace our expensive printed tubs with something that was fully planet-positive, recyclable and still had an impactful on-shelf presence."
The updated branded packaging used for Fravocado's ice cream products has been designed and manufactured by Newton Print using a Carbon Balanced production method.
The pots are also sustainable, freezer-safe and have an innovative, plastic free, tamper-proof seal. These reflect the ice cream maker's commitment to reducing its environmental impact, while providing a high-quality product for customers to enjoy.
Nathan Besley, Head of Sales and Customer Service at Newton Print: "We were delighted when Becky got in touch. Together, we've created a completely customisable sleeve from freezer-safe box board to reduce waste and plastics in their packaging.
"The aim was for a more flexible packaging option that didn't involve printing thousands of printed tubs, but that also replaced the plastic adhesive tamper-proof seal that wasn't recyclable.
"As a result, we developed a design for their new range of sleeves that formed a printed wrap around the tub, but also doubled up as a tamper-evident seal."
