Ice cream for the HORECA sector, 5L

When we launched ice cream in the new 8L containers in the then slow market, we knew that we were about to change everything and that nothing will ever be the same. However, it was time to switch up the game again, and do something entirely different. This was significantly harder, because all the other manufacturers had, inspired by our example, launched their own versions of ice cream in the 8L containers, which is why we brought our products to perfection. There was nothing left to do in order to improve them any further anymore. It was time for something entirely different. At international exhibitions we found something new. Wide packages of ice cream with a thicker layer of chocolate or sauce which were introduced as PREMIUM products for small-scale confectioners. We loved this idea, but we were not able to put this type of product on the market because, since the process of its manufacturing is very complicated and time consuming, it was meant for small-scale production. It was only a matter of time before such products would appear on the Croatian market, offered by small-scale confectioners that have become our biggest competitor. We realized that we had to do something, so we set off on a project of designing innovative solutions which would have had to be made especially for us so that we could adjust and optimize our production process. With the help of funds from the EU and the Croatian agency HAMAG-BICRO, we managed to secure some new technologies. We were the first to place a 5L tub of ice cream intended for use in the HORECA sector on the GLOBALmarket.

We manufactured 5L tubs of ice cream intended for use in the HORECA sector in disposable plastic tubs which are inserted into the 360x250xV80 inox tubs, or, in other words the standard wide tubs most often used today. We did not want to compromise on quality of some flavours; we wanted that each flavour has its own worth. We got the best ice cream bases available on the market, and we created products of those bases that no other manufacturer did not even dream of using. However, the price of bases exceeded the sale price of other ice creams. We were also apprehensive because the price had to be higher than it usually is, but the main idea was to create a product that would not cater to every customer. We had the 5L tubs of ice cream in mind for associates who wanted to have only the best products in their offer, no matter the price. The sale of these tubs has been increasing steadily, and in 2019 they became our best-selling product. That is why, in 2020, we decided to implement this approach of manufacturing the 5L tubs with only the best bases into the production of the 8L tubs too.

The 5L tubs of ice cream are still to this day a unique product on the GLOBAL market, and the fact that we have requests from all over the world during the summer, and we export them into five different countries, stands as a testimony to this.

Ice cream for the HORECA sector, 8L

These tubs of ice cream for the HORECA sector are packed in disposable plastic tubs which are then inserted into 360 x 250 x V80 inox tubs, the standard wide tubs most often used on the market today. The ice cream is raised slightly above the edge of the tub so that it looks as appetizing as possible. This is why a special 10 cm high plastic cover was created so that the ice cream and the decorations would not be damaged during transport. This also makes storage of the products much easier, since it is possible to stack them on top of one another.

Ice cream for the HORECA sector, 8L

At a time when all ice cream looked the same, flat and dull, a lot of professionals in the HORECA sector decided to start manufacturing their own. This lead to a pleasant aesthetic of the ice cream and a burst of creativity, which finally lead to an increase in the sales. Large ice cream manufacturers were left stuck in the past, and their imagination in short supply. On the other hand, we did not want to settle on mediocrity, and we had a vision to make the best product on the market. The main idea was to produce tubs intended for use in the HORECA sector that would look better than all other packages on the market, including those made by professionals in their own establishments. The journey from the idea to the finished product was not easy because almost everything had to be done from scratch. With the support of the HAMAG-BICRO agency and the Government of the Republic of Croatia, we managed to acquire new technologies made specifically according to our project. Finally, thanks to this new technology, we were able to make the most beautiful and most innovative product on the Croatian market. And, additionally, we adjusted the price of the product, which made it more affordable for the professionals in the HORECA sector to buy our new 8L tubs than to make their own ice cream from ice cream mixtures. Our 8L tubs for the HORECA sector became our best-selling product which brought enviable growth to our company. Many of our associates recognized this product, and, thanks to this, today they run the most successful confectioneries in Croatia. When we say that our tubs of ice cream for the HORECA sector are unique, we are actually being modest: quite soon, potential clients from all over the world started contacting us. But, since this is a frozen product, only few were able to organize the appropriate transport. Today, this product is exported to five foreign countries. However, according to certain indicators, this number is expected to grow. The success of this type of package has inspired us to go even a step further: a few years later, we produced 5L ice cream tubs which are packed into the same type of packaging, but with a flat lid. The goal was to make a type of ice cream with the best bases available on the global market, and to add the best toppings and sauces to it. The result was a premium ice cream for the HORECA sector which had to be more expensive, and the price of every flavour is different. In 2019, the sales of the new 5L ice cream tubs surpassed the 8L tubs, which was a clear enough sign to us to realize that the market needs uncompromising quality. Since we wanted to make the price of all the 8L tubs the same in the beginning, we had to make some compromises with some flavours so that we could stay in our price range. In 2020, we introduced the brand new 8L tub made with unprecedented innovation and uncompromising quality. We modelled them on the 5L tubs because we realized that the market had changed, and that we could only move forward with quality. The result was that even today the 8L tubs are a part of our premium line, and that every flavour has its own price. Our associates are acclaimed as confectioners with ice cream of the highest quality on the market, which makes us excited for what the future holds. You can get more information on our website

Pozzetti ice cream, 6.5L

The market is constantly shifting. If we take a look at the situation in Croatia, we could count the number of Pozzetti confectioners on one hand, while in foreign markets, these confectioners are one of the most visited overall. Since we export our products and we are very familiar with foreign markets, we know that people line up in front of confectioners that offer only Pozzetti ice cream. We believed that it was time to act and that we should make our own Pozzetti ice cream. This seemed easy at first, but we had to invest a lot of resources into new technology to succeed. During the process of development of these products, it was necessary to understand the whole concept because we honestly did not understand in the beginning why customers would buy ice cream that is in some kind of tube with a lid on, and they could not even see the product. When a customer sees our products displayed attractively in an ice cream cabinet, he or she simply cannot resist and has to stop and buy some ice cream. Just the look of the ice cream brings up emotions in the customer, and you just get a strong desire to have ice cream, although you maybe did not plan on having it. What is it that makes customers in other markets wait in lines for their scoop of the Pozzetti ice cream? If you take a close look at the concept behind these shops, you will see that it all makes sense if you meet enough parameters. Namely, Pozzetti shops are almost always indoors and have this clean, minimalistic look. Other products are rarely offered, and when they are, they go hand in hand with the ice cream, giving it a little something extra. In line with this concept, there is no impulsive shopping, you came to that shop just because you want ice cream. This means that most of the customers waiting in line are there because they came back since they were satisfied the first time, while the others are there simply out of curiosity. Also, every flavour offered has a unique story and combination. So, you can find gluten free ice cream, vegan ice cream, ice cream without E numbers, and so on. The whole concept addresses a new type of audience that wants healthy, delicious ice cream, and wants its ice cream covered with a lid, because it looks more sanitary. All of this packed up into a single concept suddenly makes sense just because there are only few associates for this product who are ready to set up a Pozzetti shop. You cannot just place an ice cream cabinet in a shop and call it a day. This kind of concept entails that you decorate the whole space in that style and tie everything up with a story. So, this has to be a Pozzetti ice cream shop, and nothing more or less. The ice creams are placed in a special cabinet, something that is not available on the Croatian market. Which brings us to the question: who can you sell ice cream which is ready to eat in Pozzetti shops to? After discussing this with our current partners, we have concluded that there is an interest on their part to open up a special Pozzetti shop. Usually, it is a challenge to find a space in bigger cities where it would be possible to place two large ice cream cabinets which could be seen from the street. However, it is possible to find a smaller space. A Pozzetti shop does not need a lot of space if ice cream which is ready to eat is sold, since production space is not needed. At the same time, it does not need an exhibition area, because in line with this concept, the ice cream is sold through a narrative, through cleanliness, quality and charm. Our associates had in the meantime already sprung into action, which resulted in the fact that the first locations in Dubrovnik, Ljubljana, and Portorož opened their door. In all of this, we have recognized a wonderful opportunity for us, although the journey to the goal is long. Namely, our philosophy is the production of only top-quality products, and most of our clients come back to our ice cream cabinets. This is the ultimate condition that has to be realized, and a high quality product is precisely what we know how to do best. However, this also brings us back to the beginning, since we could not just copy the successful flavours from the 5L and 8L tub line. This new concept required everything made from scratch, and in line with this new overarching concept. After a thousand recipes, trials and errors, we have finally come up with an entirely new line of products. We have produced the Premis Pozzetti ice cream line from fresh milk and cream, without E numbers and gluten. The line also includes vegan options made with 50 % fruit and without any milk or lactose. As always, we made the ice cream from only the top-quality bases available on the market, without compromise. It is important to point out that, in manufacturing our products, we try to use raw materials from Croatia as much as we can (depending on the availability on the market), regardless of the price. We believe that the customers in the Pozzetti shops want the best and natural ingredients. We have also decided to offer some of the products from this line in our 5L and 8L tubs for the HORECA industry too. The new Premis Pozzetti ice cream is packed into 6L disposable plastic tubs which are inserted into special inox containers that we also offer. The inox containers are compatible with any standard Pozzetti ice cream. We also carry Pozzetti ice cream cabinet from the Italian manufacturers ITALPROGET, ISA and BRX.

Ice cream for the HORECA sector, 4.5L

In the very beginning, the 4.5L tubs for the HORECA sector were the first product we manufactured. Over the years, the product kept improving in quality thanks to innovation. When we started manufacturing ice cream in 1993, these types of packaging were meant for all types of establishments in the HORECA sector: coffee shops, confectioneries, restaurants, and hotels. When the 8L, and later on the 5L, tubs for the HORECA sector were placed on the market, the number of coffee shops, bars and confectioneries who ordered these types of tubs started dropping. Today, only the more upscale hotels and restaurants order these. By “upscale”, we mean restaurants and hotels where the price is not the decisive factor when selecting products, since there are a lot of cheaper products this size on the market. Our company’s philosophy is that we manufacture exclusively high quality products with only the best ingredients, which naturally affects the prices too. This is why only those buyers who want to offer their customers only the best buy our products. The 4.5L tubs of ice cream is packaged in disposable plastic tubs which are inserted into the 360x250xV80 inox tubs, which is the standard dimension for tubs most often used today.

Ice cream for the HORECA sector, 6L

A certain number of our customers wanted to have ice cream as an additional option in their offer, but did not have enough room in their facilities for a big ice cream cabinet. This is how we came up with the idea of the 6L tub. They are based on the 4.5L tubs (which were not as appealing because the tub is filled to the brim with ice cream) and it is also packaged in disposable plastic tubs which are inserted into the standard 360x250xV80 inox tubs. However, unlike the 4.5L tubs, in the 6L tubs, the ice cream is raised 7 cm over the edge, which is also why we had to get special lids so that the decorations would not get destroyed in transport and storing. This made the ice cream more appealing, which led to better sales of the product. In comparison to the 8L tubs, the only advantage of these tubs is that you are able to offer more flavours in a smaller space, but the appeal of product is significantly lower than the 8L tubs. In 2020, we introduced the brand new 6L tub made with unprecedented innovation and uncompromising quality. This also made us reduce the number of flavours, because the ice cream cabinets in which these products are displayed are smaller. We modelled them on the 5L tubs because we realized that the market had changed, and that we could only move forward with quality. The result was that even today the 6L tubs are a part of our premium line, and that every flavour has its own price. You can get more information on our website
