Amcor Paper-based Solutions

Amcor high-barrier paperboard trays are perfect for meat, seafood, cheese, ready meals, and more. They are made with lightweight recycled material and are easy for consumers to recycle. Currently available in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum skin packaging (VSP) formats, it can run on existing tray sealer equipment. The product is fully protected to ensure and maintain food freshness and shelf life while delivering source reduction by eliminating sleeves, cartons, and labels. Amcor Flexibles thereby earned a position in our Innovation Showcase and can be learned about here.

Amcor’s Low Scalping

Amcor’s low scalping sealant allows for an inert product contact layer that has excellent anti-scalping properties to numerous APIs. Their material has a low extractable profile that is designed to hold up to chemically aggressive products. The material has excellent seal properties and can be used with standard packaging formats. They can provide structures that are capable of CR and can add perforations to the material for an easy opening feature. For these reasons, Amcor Flexibles earned a place in our Innovation Showcase and can be learned about here

AmPrima™ PE Plus

AmPrima™ is a portfolio of more sustainable packaging solutions, designed to be recycled, if clean and dry, through existing store drop-offs or curbside where available. Currently available in a range of PE formats, it offers a more sustainable choice for brands and products with no compromise on performance. AmPrima™ PE Plus films deliver high levels of clarity, stiffness, heat resistance, surface energy, and abuse resistance, unavailable in any other recycle-ready films.
