‘Environmentally improved’ films from Amcor

Amcor Light is a new range of “environmentally” improved films said to offer optimum weight while retaining perfect visual appearance and sealing integrity for fresh food and dairy applications.

Amcor claims the new films reduce packaging weight and its cradle-to-gate carbon footprint by up to one third compared with standard films. In addition to improving the user’s environmental credentials, they also guarantee on-shelf appeal thanks to the high level of film clarity and the same functional properties as PE-based films.

The Amcor Light range is available for flowpack and lidding applications. The main families are OPA Light (replacing the traditional OPA/PE films) and OPET Light (replacing the OPET/PE family of films).

Last year an Amcor Light Lid combined with Amcor Ceramis high barrier feature selected by Italian producer of cured meat San Michele Terre Ducali won the ‘Best Packaging’ award at the CIBUS fair in 2011. A Spanish customer, Ilas, has also chosen Amcor OPA Light for its sliced cheese brand Krol.
