AmLite is a unique solution that addresses the key challenge facing coffee brands: to increase sustainability while preserving the sensory experience that’s core to consumer satisfaction. More than ever, there is a need to offer a premium experience with a high-quality product, ethical assurances and packaging that offers a luxury or bespoke look and feel. Eliana Atramiz, Platform Industrialisation Engineer at Amcor Flexibles EMEA, says: “For anyone who likes coffee, aroma is a key indicator of quality and freshness. Metallised barriers preserve aroma, but their poor sustainability profile means there is a need for new solutions.” Drawing on more than 20 years’ experience in the development of high barrier materials, Amcor has designed a customisable solution based on a metal-free coating. AmLite for coffee is available in two versions: AmLite, with a barrier comparable to metallized materials and ethylene-vinyl alcohol (EVOH) laminates; and AmLite Ultra, which uses a special coating for outstanding aroma protection.
