Americas: Amcor’s four wins at packaging awards


Amcor’s four packaging solutions had won at the WorldStar 2016 awards organized by the World Packaging Organization.

The winners were selected by representatives from 19 packaging associations, members of WPO, who judged 293 packaging projects, from 35 countries, that entered the WorldStar Awards 2016.

The solutions are desiccant impregnated film Dessiflex and respiratory inhaler AirFluSal Forspiro for the medical industry, as well as two for the food and beverage industry.

Aluminum wine closures and liners range STELVIN Inside doubles wine makers’ oxygen transmission rate (OTR) choices.

Each of the four liners offers a different OTR target which, through technical and material developments, ensures a controlled level of oxygen dispersion, giving wine makers and consumers’ consistency from one bottle to the next.

The films used in the liners are produced by Amcor and are polyvinylidene chloride-free.

Meanwhile, the winning Lipton Pandora is a collaboration between Amcor and Lipton to create a new hot-fill rigid plastics bottle that is ergonomic, cost-effective and more sustainable.

Amcor made material reductions that resulted to a total packaging weight of 22 g, making it one of the lightest commercialized hot fill containers in the world.

It is rigid due to a base that flexes as the product cools and body panels that maintain rigidity.

The bottle’s curved design, inspired by tea leaves, uses 30% less polyethylene terephthalate than before and fits comfortably in the hand for a tactile consumer experience.
