We understand the meaning of exclusivity. Good design and visually appealing dessert containers (as well as great gelato) are always a plus. Nowdays, food service plastic containers matter. We also understand that you wanted to have a totally 100% customizable gelato cup. Maybe you want an exclusive lid or form for your containers to promote your 20th anniversary?  We understand that you want to be on top than the rest of the competitors in the industry. Therefore, having an exclusive cup for your ice cream or pastry parlor is crucial. Come to think about it, should you have the same design as your competitors, it would be difficult for your customers to identify which product they would prefer. This is one of the reasons most gelato, ice cream, or pastry shops struggle with differentiation. We know the importance of having an exclusive cup for your business. 

Adding your logo to your pastry packaging can be very useful. The beautiful design will stand out, and it may trigger your customer to take a picture and post it on social media. Logos are considered as the lifeblood of your business. Whether your like it or not, they are like the eyes which are the windows to your soul. Logos and brand names are the doors to your business. So, if you want to have a good representation, which can be seen in every specific cup your customers use, get started with Alcas Lab.

What else can help your business grow? Helping the environment! Alcas, alongside Nature Work, further developed a plastic polymer derived from corn and then completely biodegradable (PLA), made by an innovative and ecological material, maize bio-plastic.  This material is used in BioHappy, first line of eco-friendly packaging for gelato and pastry shops. The benefits of this material are the following:

  • Very innovative
  • More ecological than paper
  • More transparent than glass
  • As flexible and resistant as plastic
  • 100% biodegradable 




After all, part of creating a brand which is an essential tool, is allowing your business to give back to the community by caring about the environment. The moment you have your material ready, it’s all up to adding the business logo for your product to be spread.
