Amcor’s new metal-free transparent packaging

Amcor_AmLiteAmcor Flexibles has introduced AmLite Ultra, a new metal-free transparent packaging in a bid to respond to consumer packaging trends and deliver more sustainable packaging solutions.

Marco Hilty vice president of strategy, marketing and r&d at Amcor Flexibles said: “There is a move toward more minimalist packaging designs, while at the same time providing consumers more information to verify that products are fresh and healthy.

“Metal-free packaging also links to the desire for more sustainable packaging solutions.

“Traditionally, products needing a very high barrier were packaged in aluminium-based materials, considered the gold standard of high barrier packaging.

“With the launch of AmLite Ultra there is now another option that can meet our customers’ marketing needs and barrier performance needs for sensitive products.”

AmLite Ultra is the latest addition to Amcor’s existing line of AmLite, metal-free packaging. The new version can be used for a range of ambient dry food products, as well as medical and personal care products. It also offers sealing properties and a strong seal to create a variety of pack formats, including bags, stand up pouches and spouted pouches.
