Packaging company Amcor has introduced a high-barrier, recyclable paper-based packaging for snacks and confectionery in Europe.
According to Amcor, LifeSpan Performance Paper is the first product to launch on the company’s AmFiber platform. The new high-barrier, grease-resistant, FSC-certified paper-based solution has over 80% paper fibre content, as well as being PVDC-free and recyclable across most European countries.
Noemi Bertolino, VP of research and development for Amcor’s EMEA business, said: “LifeSpan Performance Paper is a unique paper-based solution that provides a high barrier, even in tropical conditions. Our customers have confirmed excellent performance on their packing lines, and a high barrier after processing, overcoming two common challenges when switching to paper.”
She continued: “This launch is the result of Amcor’s approach to material innovation. We aim to continually enhance the sustainability of packaging, while delivering the performance that brands require. Currently, we’re in development for further applications of LifeSpan Performance Paper – such as coffee, spices, dried soups and more.”
LifeSpan Performance Paper is expected to be available in stores for snacks and confectionery in 2022, with plans to expand into coffee and culinary.
