Amcor unveiled its most recent designs at the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium. In addition to custom designs, Amcor is announcing its collaboration with British multi award-winning start-up Garçon Wines to make its signature and more sustainable flat wine bottles available to the U.S. market.
“We know today’s wine consumers are looking for a unique experience,” said Beth Rettig, vice president of spirits, wine and food, Amcor Rigid Packaging. “Amcor’s concepts are sleek, modern and perfectly matched to today’s lifestyle requirements for convenience and sustainability. PET bottles are unbreakable, beach- and pool-friendly, and the designs are only limited by the imagination. There are also environmental benefits: our bottles are lightweight, infinitely recyclable* and have a lower carbon footprint than glass bottles or aluminium cans.”
Amcor and Garçon Wines will also be collaborating to produce the flat wine bottles made with post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET plastic in the U.S.
“As we are facing a climate emergency and existential threat, we urgently need to be making step changes to products to slash their carbon footprint. Flattening the wine bottle saves space and making it from recycled PET saves weight and energy,” said Santiago Navarro, CEO and co-founder of Garçon Wines. “We are highly motivated by the opportunity to collaborate with Amcor for our flat wine bottles in the world’s largest wine market. As the leading plastic packaging company to the U.S. wine industry, Amcor is the perfect partner for the stateside launch of our innovative wine bottles.”
