Amcor Flexibles and Brace’s Bakery deliver outstanding quality to Wales and the West of England

In 1902 George Brace and his family started making bread to supply their local Welsh community. Demand increased steadily and Brace’s reputation grew fast. Brace’s is now run by the fourth generation and in spite of fierce competition over the years, has retained its No.1 position in Wales and the West of England thanks to its reputation for quality and consistency.

Amcor Flexibles Bakery team is proud to wrap Brace’s extensive range of Family Bread with superior packaging. In September 2014, thanks to our excellence in flexographic printing, Jonathan Brace partnered with Amcor as the family prepared for a complete redesign of their 20 different types of family bread.

"It was a big challenge for the team in AF Ledbury due to the tight-timing" explained Dean Stanford, Fresh, Dairy & Capsules Flexo Development Manager, "however we saw it as a perfect opportunity to use our Vivid colour palette across the entire Brace’s range by removing all spot colours and at the same time, improving the vibrancy of the individual colours".

"Our new range is now in store and we are delighted with the way the design stands out on shelf" said Jonathan Brace. "The printed image perfectly reflects the fine design detail we hoped to achieve and by working with Amcor’s Vivid colour palette, we have also been able to improve our Carbon Footprint due to the reduction in colours".

"Using our Amcor ASSETT tool, we have been able to quantify the actual carbon footprint saving gained by removing 25 spot colours" added James Beresford-Wylie, Sales Manager, Bakery. "The saving is equivalent to 118 short haul flights which is all the more impressive when you see the quality of the design achieved with Vivid."
