Amcor (NYSE: AMCR, ASX: AMC), a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, is proud to announce its collaboration with Stonyfield Organic, the leading organic yogurt maker in the country, and Cheer Pack North America, a top manufacturer of spouted pouch packaging. Together, they have launched the first all-polyethylene (PE) spouted pouch, a breakthrough in sustainable packaging for food and drink products.

The innovative pouch, designed for Stonyfield Organic’s YoBaby refrigerated yogurt, replaces the previous multi-laminate structure with a more responsible all-PE film developed by Amcor called AmPrima® Plus. This film is designed to meet the APR Design® Guide for recyclability, making the pouch more eco-friendly. Additionally, the package features Cheer Pack North America’s Vizi™ cap, reducing plastic use by over five tons per 10mm caps.

Working closely with Cheer Pack North America, Amcor’s research and development team validated the AmPrima® Plus structure in production environments, ensuring premium graphic production, high moisture and oxygen barrier, and durable hermetic seals for optimal performance. The package also meets standard line speeds for converting and filling, demonstrating its efficiency in production.

“This custom-engineered solution is a result of our collaboration with Stonyfield Organic and Cheer Pack North America to create an innovative sustainable packaging solution,” said Tom Schell, senior director of research and development at Amcor Flexibles North America.

Al Madonna, vice president of marketing for Cheer Pack North America, expressed excitement for the collaboration, stating, “We’re thrilled to partner with Stonyfield Organic and Amcor on the YoBaby all-PE recyclable spouted pouch, a pioneering step in sustainable packaging that aligns with our commitment to a greener world.”

Sophie Schmitt, director of marketing for Stonyfield, emphasized the company’s dedication to sustainability, stating, “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Amcor and Cheer Pack North America on a sustainable pouch solution to achieve our long-term packaging goals and make strides in protecting the planet.”
