Amcor Vodex Generation II, the Ultimate Co-extruded Packaging Solution for Bag-in Box Foods

Press release date: November 27, 2013

Amcor Flexibles introduces Amcor Vodex Generation II, a unique barrier liner for 'bag-in box' foods offering a blend of moisture barrier, mineral oil barrier and breathability that meet the increasing focus on food protection, environmental awareness and cost effectiveness.

This ultimate co-extruded packaging solution provides increased customer satisfaction, enhanced consumer experience when opening the pack and, most importantly, safe consumption. Independent studies have raised that products packed with an internal barrier such as Amcor Vodex protective material are less exposed to mineral oil residuals than products packed in alternative solutions.

Amcor has invested significantly in new technologies to further develop the original Amcor Vodex product at its state-of-the-art extrusion facility for HDPE (High Density PolyEthylene) products in its Cumbria, UK site. The Amcor Vodex Generation II innovation is the outcome of five years of relentless research to meet the demand for a successor to the original Vodex, already widely used by cereals and dry food producers in Western Europe.

The resulting Amcor Vodex Generation II retains all the values of the original Amcor Vodex such as barrier against mineral oil hydrocarbon (MOH) migration, recyclability, breathability, aroma and flavour retention. It also offers improved features of superior moisture barrier for a longer shelf-life, improved easy-opening, better packaging machine performance and increased value for money by providing more opportunities to downgauge customer film requirements. And the new films can be tailored to specific product needs to meet barrier, puncture resistance, breathability and cost requirements.

Amy Byrick, Vice President Amcor Flexibles Europe & America's, Food & Beverage: "We believe Amcor Vodex Generation II is the most complete and cost effective solution to today's marketplace needs. A barrier liner such as Amcor Vodex, directly next to the food, helps protect it from external sources of contaminant which is a significant advantage over the use of virgin carton board alone."

Thanks to Amcor's long heritage and proven experience in the bag-in-box cereal market, we can offer a large portfolio of packaging solutions for products that provide the ultimate protection for our customers' products and meet consumers' needs.
