In its investor day briefing, Amcor announced it was on track for its products to be fully recyclable by 2025.
The company recently released a new Am-Lite HeatFlex product, the world’s first recyclable flexible retort pouch, combining recyclability with the ability to withstand heat-sterilisation. This also reduces the carbon footprint of Amcor’s existing product by 60%.
The company asserts it has the financial capacity to pursue further disciplined M&A. Macquarie believes speciality containers and global closures are potential target M&A areas. Despite the Bemis acquisition, Macquarie points out North America and European flexibles markets remain fragmented, implying the potential for bolt-on acquisitions in core flexibles.
