Introducing Amcor Light, a completely new range of environmentally improved films for fresh and dairy applications which offer optimum weight while retaining perfect visual appearance and sealing inte

11th December 2012

Amcor Light reduces packaging weight and its cradle-to-gate carbon footprint by up to one third compared to standard films. This Amcor Flexibles' innovation supports our customers' needs for improving their environmental credentials and at the same time guarantees on-shelf appeal thanks to the high level of film clarity and the same functional properties as PE-based films.

The Amcor Light range offers solutions for flowpack as well as for 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 was successfully selected by San Michele Terre Ducali and granted the prestigious ‘Best Packaging' award at the CIBUS fair in 2011.

Terre Ducali is an Italian producer of cured meat since 1965, located in Parma. Giulio Gherri, CEO of San Michele Terre Ducali: "High quality packaging and sustainability are key to our success and that's why we chose Amcor Light for our product range. The high clarity of the pack ensures enhanced product appeal. We are about to launch a brand new line of Panini called ParmaIs with Amcor Light."

"We are really pleased with Amcor Light's progress" said Philippe Scherrer, Marketing Director Fresh, LED, Dairy & Capsules. "A Spanish customer, Ilas, has also recently chosen Amcor OPA Light for its sliced cheese brand Krol because it both retains Krol's product quality and significantly improves sustainability performance while at the same time being cost-competitive."
