Amcor has been awarded three times by the 2017 DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation. The global packaging company received a gold award in the Technological Advancement and Responsible Packaging categories for its Vento coffee packaging; silver for the 20-ounce Vitaminwater bottle in the Responsible Packaging category; and – in partnership with Crown Holdings Inc. – a gold award for Peelfit in the Technological Advancement and Responsible Packaging categories.

The 100% rPET Vitaminwater bottle uses two Amcor innovations to improve performance, while weighing less than conventional hot-fill containers. The base of the bottle features Amcor’s PowerStrap technology to strengthen its structure and increase vacuum absorption during filling, enabling a 15% weight reduction from an earlier Vitaminwater bottle. The sidewall incorporates the company’s ActiveHinge technology to further improve rigidity. Besides reducing the weight of the package, these technologies also improve labelling efficiency and stacking strength.

The DuPont Awards for Packaging is an international, independently-judged competition that honours innovations in packaging design, materials, technology and processes throughout the entire packaging value chain. The judging panel evaluated more than 140 entries from 24 countries.
