Flexible packaging and pouches for ice cream

Ice cream packaging

For ice cream, as with many items, the packaging should balance eye-catching aesthetics with robust protection. Premium packaging not only extends the product's shelf life but also drives sales and amplifies brand visibility.

Ice cream – stand up pouch

While a lot of customers purchase ice cream on impulse, the appeal and brand image become one of the biggest factors for ice cream manufacturers. In these circumstances, the design excellence and superior quality of the packaging are crucial for elevating sales and surpassing competitors.

Composite combinations for ice cream packaging

There is an ample choice of composites for ice cream pouches. Uniflex experts will take multiple factors into account to choose the best combination that suits both your packaging needs and your vision. Main combinations are:

SCHEME 1. Packaging based on transparent and metallized polypropylene films offers high protection for the chocolate coating – the thin layer of aluminum foil provides good insulation from the environment, greatly improving shelf life and design options.

  • oriented transparent polypropylene film (good barrier properties against water vapours, high transparency)
  • oriented metallized polypropylene foil (good protection against moisture, reflects sunlight)

SCHEME 2. Pearl-white polypropylene film is ideal for ice cream pouches: it has a porous foamed structure, which is light and looks extremely white, allowing for unrestricted design concepts.

  • pearl-white polypropylene film (good water condensate blocking properties, high level of whiteness)

A porous and light composite, optimal as a single-layer packaging solution for ice cream


SCHEME 3. This is a single-layer laminate. Oriented transparent polypropylene film is used to emphasize the attractiveness of the product. 

  • oriented transparent polypropylene film (good barrier properties against water vapours, high transparency)

A single layer PP film protects against water vapors and provides high level of transparency
