Respect and positive impact

Aisu is an Asian inspired ice-cream with respect for Asian culture and a set intention to have a positive impact on our environment.

Uncompromised Taste

Bragging about a sustainable production process is not our thing. We believe, in this day and age, it should go without saying that we are conscious and considerate of our environment in everything we do. We rather boast about our mouthwatering flavours and surprising textures.

Plant Based Dairy for the Win

We’re happy to be a part of a growing food category. Plant based dairy products are popping up everywhere. More vegan options makes it so much easier for consumers to choose a plant based treat more often. Veganism is the most straightforward way to contribute to a sustainable future and decrease our global footprint, considering the dairy industry and livestock farming are big polluters. 

By eating a plant based diet once a week you save up to 52.000 liters of water annually!

Right Our Wrongs

Unmeltable ice cream has yet to be invented. Until then we have no other option than to use energy guzzling freezers and frozen transportation. We try to balance this out as much as we can by making other more sustainable decisions.

Plastic is not fantastic

That’s why we avoid using plastic as much as we can in the entire production chain.

Keeping it real

We would love to tell you that Aisu ice cream is 100% natural free, but we are not quite there yet. We still use artificial pandan aroma for instance, simply because we haven’t figured out yet how to create yummy ice cream with natural pandan leaves. So if you know a guy, who knows a guy that can help us get rid of artificial additives please shoot us an email at! Other suggestions on making Aisu more environmentally friendly will be much appreciated.

Always room for improvement

We only use ingredients with a low impact on the environment. But low is not low enough for us. Our goal is to solely use organic and fairtrade products for Aisu ice cream by 2025.

Aisu on a mission

We donate 50% off all Aisu proceeds to charities committed to fighting climate change and plastic pollution.

is not

That’s why we avoid using plastic as much as we can in the entire production chain. Instead we use bamboo.

Bamboo has quickly become a significant material in the sustainable materials market. It's an eco-friendly replacement for metal, plastic, hardwood, paper, and cotton.

The ink we use on the outside of our packaging is water based and the coating on the inside is made of PLA. That’s a type of polyester made from fermented plant starch from corn, cassava, maize, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp. So Aisu packaging is 100% biodegradable and compostable. Always check with your local waste authorities on how to recycle!

Benefits of bamboo

• Bamboo is a highly renewable, natural material that has antibacterial, antifungal properties and is biodegradable as opposed to plastic. Plastic can take up to 1000 years to biodegrade and is the leading cause of mass pollution all over the world.

• Bamboo is a fast growing and a naturally renewable tree-like grass. It requires little maintenance to farm as it doesn’t need any pesticides or herbicides and very little water to grow.

• When harvested bamboo regrows from its own root system, it doesn’t need to be planted again. Not only is this great from a naturally renewable perspective, but this also means that the soil and roots aren’t disturbed which is great for soil health. 

• One of the biggest environmental benefits of bamboo is its ability to absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. Compared to an equivalent tree mass, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen and research has shown that bamboo can absorb as much as 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare per year. That’s a lot of carbon sequestration!

We know you must be thinking ‘WOW BAMBOO IS THE HOLY GRAIL!’ But it’s not. There are 2 disadvantages on bamboo:

• A high demand on bamboo can negatively impact ecosystems. Farmers may cut down natural forests to make way for bamboo plantations. This destroys the natural habitat of already vulnerable wildlife such as pandas. You can imagine that this is not what we want!

• Most of the world’s bamboo is currently being produced in Asia. This means we have to ship our material for the packaging all the way from there. Currently, we are searching for ways to grow the raw material in Italy (best climate) within 5 years, so we can further reduce our environmental impact.
