LifeSpan® technology was born in Australia within ICI in conjunction with the Victorian and NSW Departments of Agriculture in 1991. Since that time the product range and technology of LifeSpan has expanded into several packaging formats for an ever growing product range that now also includes the innovative TearFlex pallet shroud and bin liner formats for most fresh produce varieties.
Amcor acquired the LifeSpan business in 1995 and it has since blossomed into one of the leading MAP brands globally with an ever increasing product range.
Amcor Flexibles propelled LifeSpan onto the world stage under its overall stewardship and guidance. LifeSpan became the leading bulk Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) brand, known worldwide for its reliability, excellent service and continuous innovation.
The global appeal and ease of use is why LifeSpan now has such a commanding presence in the major produce markets worldwide. Packers and exporters alike point to its overall quality performance and the cost savings obtained.
To ensure thorough service and support for the products, the LifeSpan product range is sold through a network of agents based in most major produce growing regions. Customers are further supported by specialist LifeSpan sales and technical staff who regularly visit key markets. They are able to train packers new to LifeSpan products and discuss technical or logistics issues with existing users. Agents and lifespan staff also help with monitoring the performance of our products during the packing operation and at destinations after shipping.
Holding all the key MAP Patents, Amcor pioneered MAP technology in fresh produce since its inception in the mid 1980’s in both retail and bulk packaging applications. LifeSpan packaging is Amcor’s brand for bulk packaging and P Plus is Amcor’s brand for MAP retail applications.
