Diamond Runner up: Amcor (Victoria, Australia) Paperly thermoformable paper-based packaging

Paperly thermoformable paper-based packaging by Amcor gives processed meat and cheese packaging a rustic feel and look, and it is designed to stand out on the supermarket shelf.

With a paper tray made completely from renewable resources and originating from FSC forests, Paperly packaging will attract environmentally conscious consumers who prefer products with a more natural feel and recyclable packaging. Made from 85% FSC–certified paper fibers, the whole base tray can be recycled where paper recycling streams are available; plus, it lowers carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 75% compared with traditional packaging, resulting in greater sustainability.

Paperly packaging's main application is processed meat, and Amcor can also offer solutions for cheese and fish. It can be combined with other Amcor offerings, such as EZ Peel and EZ Peel Reseal lidding, which can be produced with a paper-like tactile finish to complement the base tray.

If desired, the Paperly tray can also be used with Amcor's SkinTite second skin film for packing fresh meat and fish. The rigidity of the paper and thin high-barrier liner minimizes the use of non-renewable materials in the tray.
