The FPA Achievements Awards have successfully transformed the packaging industry since 1956. This year with 325 entries recorded with 100 package samples, only twenty-seven packages were honored. And Amcor was one of those to be honored with three FPA Awards – one Gold and two Silver.

Amcor, a leading name in global consumer packaging, is proud to receive three Flexible Packaging Achievements Awards 2022. These awards have recognized the company as one of the best in terms of solving complex customer challenges, modernizing sustainability, and, most importantly, elevating the overall contribution of flexible packaging. The FPA Flexible Packaging Achievements Awards ceremony was held on 23 March in Bonita Springs, Fla, and Brain Carvill, vice president of Amcor Flexibles North America R&D, was honored with the award on behalf of his company.

Amcor has received the gold award for the extended usage of flexible packaging with AmPrima recycle ready pouch for Tyson instant pot family meal kit, a silver award for technical innovation with the clear anti-grease jerky pouch, and a silver award for sustainability with AmPrima recycle PE shrink film with 30% post-consumer recycled content.

Brain Carvill said, “We express the pride of getting honored one more time for innovative achievements by FPA. This clearly demonstrates how we continuously use deep science capabilities to generate groundbreaking opportunities for brands and better options for our consumers.”

Amcor’s AmPrima recycle ready pouch is environment-friendly

AmPrima recycle ready pouch for Tyson instant pot family meal kit is a great replacement for a three-party tray, lidding, and overwrap system with a single and convenient high-barrier carrier which becomes eligible for consumer recycling. The new pouch best fits the consumers’ rising need for recyclable packaging. It incorporates several sustainable materials in brand packaging, including a 75% reduction in packaging weight, an 80% reduction in overall carbon footprint, 84% less water, and no chloride-based PVC material.

Clear anti-grease jerky pouch was awarded a silver award for technical innovation. This pouch is made of unique, high-barrier pouch material that is pivotal in restricting grease build-up and scratches on clear-meat snack packaging. The barrier film’s sealant layer consists of proprietary anti-grease agents that repel fat and resist abrasion. This provides a clear view of the product.

AmPrima recycle PE shrink film with 30% post-consumer recycled content is the best alternative to corrugate and traditional shrink wrap. Apart from upstream product waste, it also minimizes greenhouse gas emissions by up to 10% and consumes 24% less energy. 

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.
