Freeze Dried Skittles

Sweet Freeze eliminates 95% of plastic packaging and improves efficiency by 20% with Signet’s Sustainable Packaging

After switching to Signet’s range of Eco-friendly Packaging, freeze-dried candy business Sweet Freeze has been able to speed up operations, improve their unboxing experience and reduce plastic usage. 

In January 2023, Nathan Hunter and his partner embarked on an exciting side hustle that involved transforming ordinary lollies into extraordinary treats. Using innovative freeze-drying machines, the moisture is extracted from the sweet delights which results in a remarkable transformation. Not only do the lollies change shape, but their taste intensifies, and their texture becomes light, fluffy, and airy.

Starting their business this year, the duo was thrilled to witness its rapid growth. From the beginning Sweet Freeze's focus has always been on continuous growth, process improvements, and providing an exceptional customer experience.

However, as their product range expanded and orders ramped up, they faced a significant challenge — finding a reliable packaging supplier. In addition to this, they were determined to prioritise sustainability wherever possible, but their previous solution of bubble wrap did not align with these sustainability goals. So, the team began looking for an alternative packaging supplier that would not only ensure the safety of their products, but also uphold their commitment to the environment.

“It was hard for us to find a supplier that was reliable in getting us our products quickly, and in the amounts we needed.  We also wanted to use sustainable packaging as much as we could and do what we could for the environment.” 

Discovering Signet on Google, Sweet Freeze tried a range of our Sustainable eCommerce Packaging and found the ease of ordering and quickness of deliveries resulted in significant time savings for the business.

“For us we are quite time poor, so it's great to have a supplier that will deliver it to our front door, within a couple of days after placing the order. It’s helped us improve our efficiency by 20%!”

For each order Sweet Freeze now place their products into a Signet Shipping Carton, eliminate any voids within the carton with Kraft Wrapping Paper and seal with Water Activated Tape (WAT).  

Signet’s Shipping Cartons are 100% recyclable and made from recycled materials. Signet’s Kraft Wrapping Paper is a versatile brown kraft paper that offers protection, void fill and an enhanced unboxing experience for customers. While Signet’s WAT is a 100% biodegradable, and 100% recyclable alternative to plastic tape that offers superior sealing strength to cartons.  

The combined use of these products has not only allowed Sweet Freeze to improve efficiency by 20%, but they’ve also been able to significantly reduce their plastic usage. 

“Our deliveries are more presentable, the WAT is much stronger than any other tape we’ve tried, and we’ve been able to remove 95% of plastic from our packaging.”
