Spoontainable launches new ice cream season 2022 with larger product range

The edible spoons are already available in over 15 countries

20-Apr-2022 - Germany

Even though the temperatures are currently even colder, the Spoontainable team is getting ready for the upcoming ice cream season. Because this year, too, the start-up from Heidelberg wants to replace as many plastic spoons as possible with edible spoons. Despite the ban on single-use plastic, which came into force across Europe last year, many ice cream parlors still use plastic spoons that end up in the trash after a few minutes. For this reason, Start Up 2019 has developed the first edible spoon made from rescued cocoa or oat fiber. The spoon is thus not only sustainable, but also vegan and made from 100% natural raw materials. Fitting for the start of this year's ice cream season, the popular Spoonie choc, which tastes pleasantly of cocoa, is also available in a larger version.



Team Spoontainable


"We are very pleased that we have finally been able to meet customer demand for a larger spoon in the choc variant and that the Spoonie choc L is now available. This is ideal for spooning larger sundaes, bubble waffles or other sweet desserts." (Julia Piechotta, founder)

But it's not just edible spoons that have seen development. The edible stir stick, which was launched last year in May, is now available in canned packaging. There are 75 Twirly choc in the can, making it perfect for private use at home or on the go, as well as for small cafes with smaller purchase quantities The startup also offers a practical dispenser so that the stir sticks can be offered hygienically in self-service catering establishments.

Reinforcement in the team for the start of the ice cream season

The days when the team consisted of just three people are long gone for founders Amelie Vermeer and Julia Piechotta. They now have the support of ten employees in the areas of sales, marketing, finance and quality management. And the start-up needs this support, because the edible spoons are now sold in more than 15 countries. The edible spoons have also already conquered the Australian market. In any case, the team is very happy about the growth and now starts highly motivated into a hopefully successful and sunny ice cream season.
