Biodegradable Ice Cream Cups
Ice Cream Cups
Planet Friendly Packaging offers a range of compostable ice cream cups made from premium paperboard and coated with bioplastic. These materials use less energy to produce and are a sustainable alternative to plastic packaging. Our range of compostable ice cream cups can be purchased with our biodegradable cutlery and lids that are also compostable, perfect for keeping your customers happy!
Biodegradable ice cream cups are made from FSC™ certified paper and lined with Ingeo™ – a bioplastic product made from plants, not oil. They are perfectly portioned for serving ice cream, frozen yoghurt or gelato. These biodegradable ice cream cups are certified industrially compostable. This bioplastic alternative produces 75% less greenhouse gases than traditional plastic products.
The premium paperboard of biodegradable ice cream cups provides better stability, better lid fit and insulation. These eco-friendly ice cream cups are suitable for cold foods as they are moisture resistant. Another advantage of biodegradable ice cream cups is their versatility. They can be customised with various designs, sizes, and shapes, allowing businesses to maintain their branding and cater to different serving portions. Biodegradable ice cream cups are also durable and provide adequate insulation, ensuring that the ice cream stays cold and intact for a longer period. We offer custom printing for orders above 50,000 units/size for our white and natural BioBowls, and above 30,000 units/size for our Kraft BioBowls. Seal them with one of our biodegradable lids made from bioplastic.

Compostable Ice Cream Cup Benefits
Because typical single-use serving equipment, like ice cream cups, are frequently made from old-growth forests or from fossil fuels, the convenience of takeaway usually comes at the expense of the environment. After a 20-minute lifespan, conventional plastic cups are usually disposed of in landfills, where they degrade over many centuries while releasing glasshouse gases. Alternatively, these biodegradable ice cream cups have a 12-month shelf life and are compostable in a commercial facility. They are certified industrially compostable to Australian standards (AS4736). Made from plant based and sustainable materials they are PLA lined for superior moisture resistance and therefore, the perfect takeaway solution. Composting takeout packaging lowers greenhouse gas emissions, replenishes soil nutrients, and improves soil quality while being less expensive than landfilling waste.
