Packaging company Amcor has announced the introduction of two new applications for its AmPrima PE recycle-ready portfolio in Europe.
The range includes packaging for coffee and dairy products “to offer brands a more sustainable packaging choice without compromise on performance,” said Amcor.
AmPrima PE PLUS solutions for roasted and ground coffee will launch first in Europe. The range is suitable for all coffee pack formats and sizes, available with both seal and peel options to protect freshness and aroma.
According to Amcor, “AmPrima PE PLUS recycle-ready has the potential to replace over 200 current non-recyclable coffee packaging specifications”.
Meanwhile, the expansion to the AmPrima portfolio also includes PE and PE PLUS solutions for cheese in Europe. The new packaging will be available in various formats, including flow wrap for hard cheeses, pouches for grated and flow packs for “leak-prone” cheeses such as mozzarella.
AmPrima PE and PE PLUS offer brands a complete PE solution with robust product protection that meets the requirements of most European PE recycling streams.
Noemi Bertolino, VP of research and development for Amcor Flexibles EMEA, said: “The AmPrima range has already been proven to work for our US customers, and we’re happy to now offer it in Europe. For the latest applications in coffee and cheese, Amcor has run over 50 trials, and we are delighted to bring our customers a simple switch to more sustainable packaging.”
She continued: “Fitting a wide range of packaging needs, the versatility of AmPrima demonstrates our commitment to ongoing innovation and finding more sustainable solutions where they previously did not exist”.
