We take a deep dive into all things ice cream packaging and food delivery to help you avoid a melted messy disaster for your customer.
Ice cream mixed with food delivery can either result in a delicious frozen treat, or a melty, messy disaster for your customer. We want to help you avoid the latter, which ultimately comes down to your packaging choices. By choosing suitable packaging to ensure it’s fit for delivery purposes, you’ll be providing your customers with a delectable dessert that looks the same as it did when it left your store, resulting in positive reviews, recommendations and reorders.
You can find our top tips on packaging ice cream below.
1. Put a lid on it
Using a dome lid is an absolute must for ice cream delivery! The domelike feature is designed to protect and secure contents piled high, whether it be one, two or three scoops of ice cream or gelato – pile away! Detpak’s 12/16/20/24oz dome lids are 100% recyclable , BPA free and are made from quality PET for high transparency, making them a superior and sustainable choice when it comes to ice cream and packaging.
2. Make sure it goes in an insulated bag
Give delivery people the heads up that the order contains cold food. Insulated bags are excellent for keeping food warm or cold for delivery. Detpak’s insulated backpacks have 10mm thick insulation and food grade inner lining, making them an absolute must to ensure your ice cream doesn’t arrive in a melted heap!
3. Pick the right sized product for your serving
Our ice cream bowls come in six different sizes, which are designed to suit single / double sharing serves of ice cream. By ensuring you take advantage of the different sized bowls and select the correct sizes for each order, you will avoid overfilling the bowls and leakages during delivery.
