“Winning across our flexible and rigid packaging, for beverage, protein and pet food products, is testament to the expertise of Amcor’s global team,” said Michael Zacka, Amcor’s chief commercial officer.
“This year, Dow received a record-breaking number of submissions for innovative, for-ward-thinking packaging designs from around the world,” said Diego Donoso, business president for Dow Packaging & Specialty Plastics. “Congratulations to Amcor for helping drive the industry forward.”
Amcor won three awards across its flexible packaging portfolio, which Dr. William Jackson, Amcor’s CTO, said reflects a growing demand from consumers for attractive packaging that is convenient and increasingly sustainable.
Amcor and French brand owner Charcupac collaborated to design Paperly, a ther-moformable paper-based packaging made with FSC-certified paper, which received the Diamond Finalists Award. The packaging solution provides a natural, rustic look and feel for processed meat and cheese.
Amcor’s bottle for Coffeemate natural bliss Cold Brew won a Gold Award. Designed using Amcor’s vacuum-resistant GeoStrap base, the innovation replaces a more easily dented bottle design. The bottle’s GeoStrap base incorporates Amcor’s PowerStrap base technolo-gy and the PowerFlex Geodesic base design.
Gold Award Molson Coors 12-Pack Cooler Bag was recognized with a Gold Award for delivering consumer convenience and a fresh take on the ubiquitous beer carton, which helps to set the Molson Coors brand apart from competitors. The pouch expands into a larger bag that can go directly into the refrigerator or cooler.
The Full Moon Perdue Natural Look Pet Treat Pouch won a Silver Award. In addition to the matte finish with gloss print on paper-like texture, the pouch incorporates a reclose zipper for product freshness after opening.
