Amcor recognized by World Packaging Organisation for product innovation across industries, regions

ZURICH (News release) -- Amcor, a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, has won in four categories in the 2023 WorldStar Global Packaging Awards, organized by the World Packaging Organisation.

Amcor was honored for innovative product design in the Food, Health and Personal Care, and Medical and Pharmaceutical categories, strengthening its global position in key flexible packaging segments.

The winning Amcor teams span across Asia Pacific, Latin America and North America, representing globally available products that demonstrate a wide range of packaging solutions and product excellence: PrimeSeal Eco-Tite Recycle-Ready Shrink Bag - Food

Amcor's PrimeSeal Eco-Tite R shrink bags offer a new innovative solution that is a lighter, high-barrier shrink bag that is free of polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) and other contaminants that would prevent it from being recycled. The shrink bags have the potential to reduce non-renewable primary energy demand by 60%, deliver a 45% lower carbon footprint, and use 55% less water over the manufacturing lifecycle, in comparison to other packaging on the market.

LifeSpan Copper-Based Film - Food

Extending the shelf life of products is one of the many vital roles that packaging can play, and Amcor has been exploring the use of copper microparticles to inhibit the development of microorganisms within processed meat and cheese packaging. Created through a collaboration with biomaterial technology company CopperProtek, Amcor LifeSpan Copper-Based Film is an innovative and smart film allowing an increase of up to three times the product's shelf life, thereby reducing food waste and having a positive environmental impact.

HealthCare AmSky Blister System - Health and Personal Care & Medical and Pharmaceutical

Amcor's HealthCare AmSky Blister System is a PVC-free and aluminum-free thermoform blister system designed for the packaging of daily medications and dietary supplements. It is formulated using high-density polyethylene (HDPE), one of the most recycled plastics in the world, and presents a more sustainable and carbon-footprint optimized alternative. The product received WorldStar awards in both the Health and Personal Care, and Medical and Pharmaceutical categories, recognizing the benefits that can be delivered to a range of consumers and packaging needs.

Amcor annually invests $100 million into research and development and is uniquely positioned to offer a variety of packaging solutions with a wide, differentiated portfolio of products.
