Amcor Flexibles wins Gold and Silver at Annual Flexible Packaging Association Achievement Awards

Amcor Flexibles received two awards at the Flexible Packaging Association's (FPA) Annual Achievement Awards held on 22nd February, 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The FPA is a leading trade organisation for flexible packaging converters and suppliers. The annual achievement awards honour packaging and converting organisations that demonstrate breakthrough technologies, printing techniques, package structures, environmental advantages and new end-uses.

Amcor Flexibles received the gold award in the 'Technical Innovation' category for its interior tinted / printed Formpack®, serving the prescription and OTC blister pack markets. The interior tinted/printed Formpack® is a product extension of the coldform materials offered by Amcor. This product allows customers to package the full range of tablet colours without the downtime and scrap caused by false rejections. Moreover, blister packaging line efficiency is improved and overall costs are reduced. The product enables customers to use the tinted package without conducting new stability testing which results in faster product launches and speed to market.

Amcor Flexibles was granted the silver award in the ‘Environmental and Sustainability' category for the Pocket Shots Stand-Up Pouch, serving the single use beverage and liquid products markets. The Pocket Shots Stand-Up Pouch single portion alcoholic beverages is an example of further penetration of flexible packaging into areas previously limited to rigid containers. The laminate is compatible with alcoholic beverages. The package is easy to open, unbreakable (compared to glass) and takes up less space when empty in comparison to traditional beverage packages. The pouch reduces packaging weight by approximately 50% thereby delivering significant life cycle impact improvements.
