Amcor Flexibles awarded two Alufoil Trophies
Amcor Flexibles has been awarded two Alufoil Trophies at an event organised by the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA).
In the Consumer Convenience category, Amcor Emend tri-pack formpack with peelable lidding was awarded an Alufoil trophy for its improved open-ability and product protection. The product consists of a peelable lid blister pack, combining a lidding foil and a Formpack coldformed bottom web, provided by Amcor Flexibles for Merch Sharp and Dohme Australia (MSDA). The packaging is used for medication to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by certain anticancer medicines.
In addition, Amcor Flexibles was awarded an Alufoil trophy in the category of Marketing and Design for its Belmoca coffee capsules. The shiny, diamond faceted aluminium capsules complement the company’s promotional slogan: ‘Belmoca – a diamond in your cup.’
Andrea Della Torre, R&D director, pharma, pet food, Retort and technical foils at Amcor Flexibles Europe & Americas, says: “We are honoured to be distinguished as an Alufoil Trophy winner for both our food and pharmaceutical product ranges. In the consumer convenience category, Emend tri-pack formpack is a new packaging solution that greatly increases patient acceptance and compliance, key factors for a medication used in association with anticancer medicines. This trophy recognises our R&D teams’ relentless efforts to work closely with customers to influence better health outcomes for patients. The Alufoil Trophy in the category of Marketing & Design for our Belmoca capsules and lidding material rewards our continuous focus on innovation and our commitment to finding better and smarter ways to improve the end user experience.”
