Ice Cream Containers with Lids
Wholesale Ice Cream Containers
Who doesn’t love ice cream? It’s one of the culinary pleasures of life. Ice cream in its modern incarnation has been around for more than 120 years (although European aristocrats enjoyed a form of frozen cream and sugar confections in the early 17th century) but the way it is packaged has changed dramatically. Ice cream containers now have to adhere to certain standards and be fit for purpose. They are a vital purchase for any manufacturer as a way to not only store their product but of serving it to customers.
If you are looking for containers suitable for storing ice cream, you have come to the right place. We are stockists of a wide range of wholesale ice cream containers, that have been created to meet the specific needs of professional ice cream storage. We have a variety of sizes and storage options for you to choose from and as storage specialists are always here to offer advice.
When storing ice cream – or any foodstuffs – food grade containers are essential. This means they will not contain toxic residues when they come into contact with the things we eat. Most ice cream – apart from vegan varieties or sorbet – is made of milk, which needs to be kept well. Stored wrongly and it could lead to food poisoning.
Why choose polypropylene ice cream containers?
Ice cream is a perishable product and it will degrade unless stored under certain conditions. As anyone who has left the freezer door open for a short period of time will know, ice cream will soon loose its deliciously creamy firm texture. When frozen desserts are exposed to temperatures above 10°F, they become subject to adverse changes in body, texture, and flavour. The truth is if improperly handled or stored, your ice cream, no matter how much care you’ve taken over its manufacture, will not taste as good as when it was made.
Therefore, it is vital that you should store ice cream at a recommended temperature of-18C or below and for that you cannot use just any kind of plastic container.
Polypropylene is an exceedingly flexible, strong and impact-resistant material which has the ability to withstand the icy cold temperatures needed to maintain ice cream. It is also lightweight which makes it more cost effective when it comes to shipping.
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer that offers many different advantages which makes it ideal for a wide variety of different products and uses, from high heat to cold and more.
- It’s a low-cost material, so budget friendly for the wholesale buyer
- Has a moderate strength and stability
- Has flexibility, which makes it easy to mould into different shapes
- Colourfast, which means your colourful ice cream containers will stay that way for longer
- Resistant to fatigue, so that your tubs can be opened and closed numerous times without suffering any breakages.
Our wholesale ice cream containers are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours, and you can be assured that they will not be harmful when exposed to a cold environment.
Containers specifically created for storing ice cream come in 2 litre, 2.5 litre, 4 litre and 5 litre sizes, however we also have other options, including round containers with lids. Like our ice cream containers these are produced from high quality food grade polypropylene and conform to the highest standards of food safety and hygiene regulations.
Round containers with lids are available in 30ml, 50ml, 80ml. 120ml, 155ml, 180ml, 210ml, 225ml, 280ml, 318ml, 365ml, 480ml, 520ml, 565ml, 600ml, 1025ml, 1,180ml sizes.
Then we have buckets with lids which are also a very popular choice for storing ice cream as they are a great option for the job of storing as well as transporting ice cream.
Our round plastic buckets are available in the following sizes 870ml, 1litre, 1.5 litre, 2 litre, 2.2 litre, 2.5 litre, 3 litre, 4 litre, 5 litre, 7.5 litre, 10 litre, 13 litre, 18.5 litre, and 20 litre; while our rectangular buckets are available in 2 litre, 3 litre and 3.5 litre sizes and our square buckets in 1 litre, 5 litre, 8 litre, 10 litre and 18 litre sizes.
When choosing a storage container for ice cream you can factor in whether you are producing small quantities in ice cream tubs or you are a business which needs big buckets in which to store ice cream.
You can opt for different colours of ice cream containers, so the choice is yours but increasingly popular are clear containers. These are a great way to display and tempt the customer with the product inside. For example, a transparent container will reveal the creamy white an dark brown flecks of a delicious cookies and cream confection, or the green and chocolate of a mint choc ice cream.
All containers can be printed with logos and designs to show off the product to its best advantage.
