Flexible packaging for dry, fresh and prepared food

Packaging for coffee, tea and ready-to-drink beverages

Amcor offers multiple packaging solutions specifically designed for coffee, tea, and beverage powders. Our solutions can be tailored to whole bean, ground and instant coffee. We can also create drink pouches for water, juices and ready-to-drink beverages (non-alcoholic and alcoholic).

Flexible packaging for home and personal care products

We have product offerings for many segments of the home care market including laundry and cleaning products. For personal care products we offer pouches and sachets (primary packages, samplers, magazine inserts) for hair care and skin care including very aggressive and hard-to-hold products. We have experience in packaging solutions for wipes, dental whitening strips, contact lenses, bag-on-valve laminates, and more.

More sustainable high barrier packaging: AmLite is a new line of metal-free, high-barrier packaging that can reduce the carbon footprint of your packaging by up to 40% compared to standard aluminium-foil laminates.
Packaging that simplifies the filling process: Vento™ is the only coffee packaging system delivered to roasters with the degassing system already applied. Coffee can be packed immediately after roasting with no additional equipment or steps, preserving its fresh flavour and aroma.
Consumer friendly packaging: AluFix and CanSealPro peel-off ends for cans are lightweight, easy to open and leave no sharp edges.
Advanced pharmaceutical packaging: Formpack® Ultra combines the optimum blister cavity design and card layout with the highest performing cold form material. Winner of a Gold DuPont Award for Packaging Innovation 2016.
Specialised medical packaging: Through technical collaboration from pack design to implementation, we deliver efficient, robust and effective offerings matched to our customers’ requirements. For example, we will collaborate to understand your packaging needs for catheters, guidewires and stents.
