A new production line has been built by Amcor for high-performance shrink bags and films for meat and cheese at its Amcor Flexibles plant in Swansea.
As per the company, the newly built production line is expected to deliver several products in Amcor’s PrimeSeal packaging range for meat and DairySeal packaging range for cheese. These include Crystal Shield 75 shrink bag, Eco-Tite, Cook-Tite, Flow-Tite and Form-Tite.
Further, Amcor added that the new bags and films offer “a more sustainable alternative to existing solutions, with a high barrier PVdC-free formulation, thinner material that maintains performance, and exceptional optical properties.”
The company’s range of PrimeSeal™ shrink bags and films extends the shelf life of highly perishable products considerably like fresh meat. Further, they offer high-barrier protection against oxygen and moisture to ensure the maintenance of product freshness and safety. Further, they also assure protection throughout packing, transportation, retail and at home. PrimeSeal™ Crystal Shield is an extra-robust version that extends the shelf-life of all types of meat and non-gassing cheese with extra product protection to prevent punctures and reduces leakage.
Robert Kleinschmidt, Vice President of the meat, fish and poultry business unit of Amcor stated – “Our state-of-the-art production line enables us to provide customers with an effortless transition towards more sustainable packaging. With our latest shrink line, we can now produce thinner, PVdC-free shrink bags and films that not only maintain the same transparency and protective qualities as existing solutions but also surpass them in terms of performance and reduced plastic usage.”
Rosalia Rosalinova, Senior Marketing Manager stated – “This latest investment expands our existing PVdC-free packaging range for meat and cheese. Amcor uniquely combines packaging engineers, sustainability experts and modern production. The investment in this new production line demonstrates our dedication to our customers and to offering more sustainable packaging for the meat and dairy industries.”
