Mondi Kalenobel has partnered with sugar-cone maker Oexmann & Co. in Germany to launch a paper ice cream cone sleeve with clear plastic window.

The oval clear window on the cone sleeve measures 2.3 cm high by 1.8 cm wide and is made of biodegradable film, then shipped to Fonterra in New Zealand, which is using them to package some of its premium cones.

The products include Kapiti Cherry Blossom & Strawberry; Kapiti Toasted Sesame & Golden Syrup; and Kapiti West African Dark Chocolate & Yuzu.

The Kapiti Toasted Sesame & Golden Syrup recently won most innovative ice cream 2018 by the International Ice Cream Consortium (IICC).

Mondi also decided to create a small, see-through window, laser cut to the outline shape of Kapiti Island on the cone lid. Mondi is now supplying these custom-made lids in addition to the cone sleeves to Fonterra.

Thomas Oexmann, MD and grandson of founder Karl Oexmann, said in addition to New Zealand, the company exports its ice cream cones to nearly all European countries, and is producing approximately five million ice cream cones per day.

Mondi acquired Turkish flexible packaging manufacturer Kalenobel in July 2016. The Istanbul-based business also has production facilities in Kirklareli.

DairyReporter also recently reported Mondi Kalenobel is going to start trials to make plastic-free​ ice cream packaging that does not need a polymer coating, testing materials for push-up and squeeze-up tubes.

We worked step by step with Oexmann and developed and patented a cone sleeve that lets ice cream lovers see the goodness inside​,” said Sedat Igbar, commercial manager, Europe, Mondi Kalenobel.

Ice cream sales

Euromonitor in 2017 estimated retail sales of the global ice cream market at about $74bn and growing. Europe covers about 30% of the global ice cream market and the consumption growth in the region is driven by single portion ice cream sold in stick, cone or cup format.

Mondi Kalenobel exports 75% of its ice cream business and expects a strong sales increase across Europe.
