The largest and most complete assortment of containers for artisanal ice-cream and patisserie.

But this is not the definition we prefer and the one that best represents our catalogue. With the evolution of the external context, we in fact have focused our attention and investments on the possibility of offering articulated product ranges for different types of materials so as to meet the varied needs of our clients both in Italy and abroad. The widest selection of multi-material ranges for ice-cream and patisserie. This is the Alcas catalogue today, and we are extremely proud of it.

Bioplastics

WE STARTED EXPERIMENTING PLA IN THE EARLY 2000S WHEN THE EURO HAD JUST BEGAN CIRCULATING.

PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a material that derives from the processing of the sugar found in corn, beetroot, sugar cane and other natural and renewable materials.
We started using it for the thermoforming of cups and tubs, with the perception of being maybe ahead of the times.

Over the past 20 years, however, we have developed a unique experience in the printing of this Bioplastic, which enabled us to be ready with an entire range of PLA products when the social conscience concerning sustainability required the use of biodegradable and compostable products.

Paper

It is the latest material that has entered production and that has mostly overhauled its structure and arrangement, since it made it necessary to create a whole department dedicated to a different process from traditional printing, whether injection printing or thermoforming.

Paper is the most natural and sustainable material par excellence on the market and, to respect and promote this “green” soul, we decided to use only paper that can guarantee the preservation of biological diversity.

PET

PLASTIC USED TO BE JUST PLASTIC.

There was no consolidated shared awareness of the difference between various materials. Over the past few years, however, it has emerged how some plastics have actually emerged as having a superior relative quality, such as 100% recyclable Pet.

Thanks to its structure, Pet does not lose its essential properties during the recovery process and it can be recycled endless times, also respecting the strict hygienic conditions required when it comes to food.

PP-PS

POLYSTYRENE AND POLYPROPYLENE ARE THE PLASTIC MATERIALS THAT MARKED OUR HISTORY AND OUR IDENTITY, FAITHFUL COMPANIONS ON THIS JOURNEY THAT HAS LASTED OVER 60 YEARS.

Adaptable, productively and aesthetically flexible, PP and PS are mostly characterised by their durability and sturdiness which enable, via upcycling or domestic washing, to give products a new lease of life.

A novelty to be discovered

A simple name that also aims to be a declaration of intent, an acronym reminiscent of the values of quality and excellence, a graphic symbol that evokes perfect shapes and palpable geometries. PAP is born, the Alcas paper project.
