Amcor and Selinko launch InTact

Anti-counterfeiting for wines & spirits


Amcor Capsules, world leader in creation of premium capsules, and Selinko, the object identification company have launched InTact, a highquality connected overcap to protect
wines & spirits against counterfeiting and fraudulent refilling. By using an NFC (Near Field Communication) smartphone or device to tap the chip embedded in the tag together with the Selinko mobile application platform, any industry player or consumer can now easily verify the authenticity of their bottle.

Amcor Capsules has taken up a technical challenge by developing a specific overcap to directly embark the NFC tag. The qualitative decoration process and the discreet integration of the tag allow brands to maintain a strong and premium image. InTact is a ready-tocap solution that requires no change on the bottling line.

Amcor’s connected overcap combined with Selinko’s platform enables wine and spirit brands to fight counterfeits. Anyone tapping the overcap with an NFC smartphone can authenticate the bottle, verify its status (opened/not opened yet) and get information about the product (vintage, production, history, serving tips) as well as the brand. Selinko’s platform also allows brands to better control their distribution network to detect gray markets by involving the end consumer as final controller.

Selinko provides unique consumer engagement services, while collecting real-time consumer insights. InTact marketing services remain active even after the opening of the bottle to pursue the experience anytime, anywhere. The level of security of the NFC tag can be adapted to the brand needs and budget – from no security for marketing engagement for instance up to bank-level security.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
