Ardagh celebrates trophy win
Ardagh Group has gained a much-coveted 2016 Alufoil Trophy in the Consumer Convenience category for the development of a unique metal microwaveable fondue bowl for Emmi, one of Europe’s most innovative premium dairy producers.
The ready-to-eat cheese ‘All In One Fondü’ with an easy-peel aluminium foil lid has proved very popular following its acclaimed launch in 2015.
Louis Lindenberg, global packaging sustainability director at Unilever, explained: “This concept is a clever combination of a number of packaging elements to create a highly original product.
“Fondues can be time consuming due to the complexity of setting them up. But here we have a product, where all the packaging works together to make the concept work and where the alufoil lid is a core element. ”
The alufoil lid uses Amcor’s AluFix Retort Pro membrane, which Ardagh has integrated into its Easy Peel convenient lid system to provide additional consumer convenience and shelf life.
