Win-Win for G’s Fresh, Amcor flexibles at the UK Packaging Awards 2013

When G's Fresh looked for the right packaging to enhance and protect its delicious nutritious beetroot for M&S, they chose Amcor ReClose.

Amcor ReClose is an innovative film that allows film lidded trays to be open and reclosed up to 15 times and it seals to PE, PS, PP or directly to APET trays.

"Good packaging should protect the product, keep it fresh and be intuitive for the consumer to use" said Beth Appleton, Sales Executive, Fresh Produce, Amcor Flexibles Europe & Americas.

"With Amcor ReClose you simply peel the film back, take what you want and then smooth the lid back onto the pack. We are really delighted to have been recognised twice by the judge with G’s Fresh."

Amcor Flexibles Fresh Produce division is the original and leading supplier of solutions for the Fresh Produce market with a dedicated team of experienced food scientists across Europe and focus on customer partnership.

On 13 November, this choice turned into a Win-Win for both companies at the UK Packaging Awards in London. G’s Fresh M&S beetroot range sealed with Amcor ReClose won FIRST PRIZE in the prestigious UK Packaging Awards ‘Consumer Convenience’ category and an Highly Commended in the ‘Flexible Plastic Pack of the Year’ category. The G’s Fresh M&S Beetroot range packed in a punnet with the convenient Amcor ReClose lidding film really impressed the judges.

"I love this – the quality of the reseal is the best I have ever seen" is how one of the judges summed up the product while another praised the excellent execution of the pack with its "minimum amount of fuss which does the job".
