Amcor Rigid Packaging (ARP) has introduced the DairySeal line of packaging that features ClearCor, an advanced polyethylene terephthalate (PET) barrier.
With the introduction of DairySeal, the exploding nutritional, dairy alternatives, and ready-to-drink (RTD) market will now have a more sustainable packaging option that can be leveraged across all retail channels.
The ClearCor PET barrier technology is a concentrated capsulation in the centre of the preform that allows more flexibility and resin options. This technology positively impacts the overall performance of the barrier in the packaging and maintains recyclability.
The DairySeal line of packaging can be made with up to 80 per cent of recyclable material while maintaining superior taste and performance for the brand.
“PET is the most recycled plastic in the world, with more than 1.8 billion pounds of used PET bottles and containers recovered in the US each year alone,” Amcor Rigid Packaging vice-president of marketing and strategy for specialty containers Greg Rosati said.
“With the development of our DairySeal line, we are able to offer PET packaging that helps improve sustainability for brands in the dairy alternatives, nutritional drinks, and ready-to-drink coffee space. In doing so, Amcor Rigid Packaging is bringing this packaging, and its significant environmental and commercial benefits, to market.”
Along with providing more sustainable benefits, DairySeal maintains its physical integrity during shipment; allows for customisable design while meeting shelf requirements; and is designed to help improve overall consumer satisfaction in a highly competitive landscape.
The DairySeal line is currently available in 8 oz, 11 oz, 12 oz and 14 oz stock options, with additional sizes and shapes planned for future stock demand.
“A superior dairy product deserves superior packaging. The DairySeal line in PET offers brands easy access to e-commerce and convenience store distribution channels, where refrigerated shelf space is designed for round, rigid plastic bottles,” Rosati said.
“When considering that PET significant environmental advantages, the DairySeal line will help drive a circular economy where brands, consumers and the environment all benefit.”
