Amcor launches new platform for paper-based packaging.

Amcor, a leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, launched a new paper-based packaging product platform – ‘AmFiber’. AmFiber innovations aim to redefine the capabilities of traditional paper packaging, providing a wider range of features and functional benefits to meet the changing needs of consumers.

Ron Delia, Amcor’s chief executive officer said, “Amcor’s long-term experience in paper and carton packaging was the basis for launching the AmFiber platform. Amcor has a proven history of delivering ground-breaking innovation to support our customers’ growth aspirations. This family of differentiated paper-based products builds on Amcor’s extensive track record across multiple materials and applications.”

The AmFiber platform demonstrates Amcor’s consumer-centric and adaptable approach to innovation which provides customers with the best in packaging technology using the materials most suited to their needs.

The first AmFiber product launch in 2022 will be an innovative solution tailored to provide snacks and confectionery customers in Europe with a recyclable package that delivers a high barrier from oxygen and moisture.

Amcor will gradually extend its new paper-based offerings into a wide variety of applications such as coffee, drink powders, seasoning and soups, and the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions. AmFiber innovations will join other Amcor paper-based products introduced recently, including solutions for butter and margarine in Latin America, cheese in Europe, and confectionery in Australia.

The introduction of the AmFiber platform coincides with the four-year anniversary of Amcor’s 2025 pledge to develop all of its packaging to be recyclable or reusable and to increase the use of recycled content.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
