Multipak Cone Sleeves: An Anti-Drip Ice Cream Packaging Solution

A blazing summer sun can whet the appetite for cold, tasty ice cream; however, the perfect ice cream cone can be ruined by soggy wrapping that drips ice cream all over the place.

Jeddah-based Multipak, flexible paper packaging manufacturer, manufactures 2-layer cone sleeves with an aluminum outer layer and an inner paper layer, driven through a lamination process. Tested to be drip-free, these sleeves also contain environmentally-friendly raw materials. They’re also visually appealing and food-contact safe.

The aluminum layer of Multipak’s cone sleeves prevents water penetration and helps dead fold to hold lids in place, thus providing a drip-free ice cream cone sleeve. In addition, during the manufacturing process, the cone sleeve is put in a deep freeze (-20◦ C) for half an hour to ensure that the gluing of both sides together remains intact under freezing conditions.

Multipak’s cone sleeve sizes include 110, 115, 120, 135 and 150 milliliters (ml) or according to customer requirements.

Eco-Friendly Cone Sleeve Materials

Consistent with Multipak’s aim to provide eco-friendly packaging, the inner paper layer of their ice cream cone sleeves is FSC/PEFC ‘Chain of Custody’ (CoC) certified, indicating that the paper originates from sustainably managed forests.

The certification signifies that manufacturers make responsible purchasing decisions, work with approved paper sources and engage in ethical business practices.

Eye Catching Cone Sleeve Design

Multipak prints ice cream cone sleeves in up to 8 colors, using flexographic or rotogravure printing. High-quality printing provides a more visually attractive packaging.

Additionally, cone sleeves pass through a 70◦ C air circulating oven to make certain there are no bubbles, delamination, or creasing, in order to ensure that the presentation and appearance of the ice cream packaging meets customer requirements.

Multipak Cone Sleeve Safe Packaging for Food Contact
