Amcor Eco-Tite R shrink bag

Wednesday, 06 January, 2021 | Supplied by: Amcor Global

Amcor’s Eco-Tite R is a recycled, PVDC-free shrink bag for fresh and processed meat, poultry and some cheeses. Amcor Eco-Tite R is designed to maximise shelf life, maintain food safety, reduce food waste and can be recycled in existing polyethylene (PE) plastic recycling streams. This means that more consumers will be able to recycle their meat, poultry and cheese packaging while enjoying the benefits of longer-lasting food.

The product is a multi-layer, mono-PE packaging which maintains a high barrier to oxygen and water vapour even when exposed to high-moisture environments, such as cooler cases and refrigerators. This solution provides meat and cheese producers with an alternative to PVDC packaging — which is not recyclable in mechanical or chemical recycling systems.

Amcor Eco-Tite R has been certified by the cyclos-HTP institute, an independent testing lab. Consumers can today recycle the bag where suitable infrastructure is in place, including Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Austria and Spain. Recyclability of the new shrink bag is expected to grow as infrastructure develops in additional countries.
