Fantastic Flavours Ice Cream Parlour’s husband and wife owners, Miceál O’Hurley and Oksana Shadrina, will be teaming-up with Down2Earth Materials to introduce environmentally friendly, compostable disposables, including spoons, coffee cups, lids and more throughout 2018 as they replace their stock.
“We are committed to reducing, recycling and re-using wherever possible. We are also introducing biodegradable and compostable packaging and items at Fantastic Flavours,” said Miceál. “2018 will see us replace our traditional packaging and takeaway items with environmentally friendly products, so that beyond making award-winning, delicious, handmade, artisan ice-cream on-site here in Youghal, we are learning more about doing our part to ensure that our community and the planet are treated with care,” he added.
Fantastic Flavours, known for its charitable and philanthropic efforts, feels a special responsibility to add environmental consciousness to its corporate ethic. “Our baby, Bláithnaid, turned one this month. We want to do our part to hand-on to our children and grandchildren a planet, culture and country better than we have inherited,” said Miceál. Oksana added: “We have even installed 100 percent recyclable flooring, made from 65 percent recycled materials, during our recent renovations. We hope to promote a better sense of responsibility for our environment in our customers and community.”
Winners of the Food Awards Ireland 2017 Dessert Outlet of the Year, and named ‘One of Ireland’s Best Ice-Cream Parlours’ by several food critics and publications, Fantastic Flavours daily makes more than 42 flavours of handmade, artisan ice-cream in Youghal.
