NEENAH, WIS. – Packaging solutions company Amcor recently announced that it earned a Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) Silver Achievement Award for its AmPrima PE Plus recycle-ready pouch for Lahli Morning Protein Bites.

The honor was presented during FPA’s Annual Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition in Amelia Island, Fla.

“Utilizing Amcor’s global innovation resources, we are proud to have developed for our customer a new, more responsible packaging solution that does not compromise performance,” said Brian Carvill, vice president of Amcor Flexibles North America Research and Development. “It is an honor to be recognized for our deep capabilities in material science and packaging technologies, and strong commitment to solving complex environmental and performance challenges.”

The pouch features Amcor’s AmPrima PE Plus recycle-ready film:

  • AmPrima solutions employ a variety of technologies, including proprietary techniques unavailable elsewhere, to deliver recycle-ready alternatives with no compromise on performance.
  • The AmPrima PE Plus material matches the clarity, stiffness, heat resistance, surface energy and abuse resistance of the unrecyclable incumbent film.
  • To aid recycling efforts, the pouch carries a How2Recycle label for the PE stream, clearly communicating store drop-off recycling instructions.

Additionally, Amcor said the pouch enhances performance in the eyes and hands of the consumer. With Amplify finishing technologies customers’ brands perform better, stand out on shelf and deliver operational performance, the company said.
