Amcor Packaging Wins Three Alufoil Trophies for Consumer Convenience, Technical Innovation and Resource Efficiency
Winning an award for Consumer Convenience, Emmi’s “All In One Fondü” is a ready-to-eat cheese fondue contained in a microwaveable metal bowl with an easy-peel aluminium foil lid. To prepare the All In One Fondü, the bowl is heated in a microwave or oven and then kept at the right temperature over a small candle in a specially designed can holder. The fondue can be eaten directly from the bowl. This novel packaging won a joint award for Ardagh Group and Amcor. Winning in the category of Technical Innovation, Amcor’s LuxPrem+ is an innovative overcap solution for premium spirits made from a special aluminium-based material. Developed by Amcor’s R&D team, the overcap’s intricate design features rival tin overcaps traditionally used for premium spirits. LuxPrem+ perfectly reflects the sophistication of premium brands with high visual appeal and on-shelf impact, smooth opening and a reassuringly substantial feel once the bottle has been opened. Winning in the category of Resource Efficiency is Amcor’s Formpack® Ultra, a new cold form blister for pharmaceutical products. The material can be elongated more than standard cold form solutions, resulting in cavities that can be drawn deeper and with sharper wall angles than ever before. This gives pharmaceutical companies two options: 1) design a smaller blister card, or 2) add more cavities without increasing the blister card size. Formpack® Ultra’s superior elongation is possible thanks to ‘best in class’ selection of raw materials, advanced manufacturing processes and extensive quality control.
