Innovations on display will include Amcor’s AmLite, a metal-free laminate for high-barrier packaging; Vento, a coffee packaging system with built-in venting control for ground and whole beans; and PushPop, a patented stand-up pack with a novel easy-opening system.
“Amcor’s products address the increasingly challenging needs of brand owners, retailers, and manufacturers who seek to differentiate their products in a highly competitive marketplace,” said Luca Zerbini, VP of marketing, R&D and sustainability for Amcor Flexibles EMEA. “Our research and packaging development focuses on high performance, consumer appeal, product safety, digitalization, cost benefits as well sustainability advancements.”
An example of more sustainable packaging that Amcor will share at Interpack is its AmLite line of metal-free films for high-barrier packaging. AmLite provides up to 40% carbon footprint reduction and up to 21% packaging weight reduction compared to standard Alu-based materials. AmLite utilizes Amcor’s extensive experience in high-barrier coating to create a lightweight, transparent material that offers excellent product protection.
“We’ve had customers switch to AmLite and reduce their packaging’s carbon footprint for nuts, coffee, cereals, and snacks by as much as 30%,” said Gerald Rebitzer, director of sustainability for Amcor Flexibles EMEA and Americas.
Amcor will also showcase Vento, the only coffee packaging system with built-in venting control, allowing coffee to be packed immediately after roasting with no additional equipment or processes.
Products on display that address differentiation will include Amcor’s CanSealPro line of direct seal aluminum membranes for cans; ProtectValve system that allows gentle in-pack steaming of fresh vegetables; and PushPop packaging, an innovative, patented stand-up pack with a novel easy-opening system that preserves barrier integrity. With PushPop, consumers simply push in the special perforation on the top and pop the pack wide open.
