Amcor Flexibles has won the prize for “New Technology” at the coveted 2013 SIMEI-ENOVITIS Innovation Challenge. On 12 November, the technical and scientific committee presented the award for excellence in innovation to Amcor during the official opening of the 25th exhibition in Milan.
Amcor Flexibles Capsules, the pioneer of Stelvin® aluminium closures won the prize for Stelvin® Inside, a brand new range of four liners for wine, launched in January 2013.
Each of the four new liners has a different OTR (Oxygen Transmission Rate) target. The Stelvin® Inside range doubles winemaker’s OTR choice giving them far more tools to help craft and perfect their wine. Each liner ensures a low level of oxygen dispersion allowing wine makers and consumers consistency from one bottle to the next.
“Amcor Flexibles Capsules is extremely proud to receive this award for Stelvin® Inside. It marks a significant moment in the history of Stelvin® closures for wine – a contemporary solution which has been around for more than 50 years” said Nicolas Freynet, General Manager, Amcor Flexibles Capsules.
From 12 to 16 November, Stelvin® Inside is present at the SIMEI-ENOVITIS trade fair on Paolo Araldo’s Booth C11D12 – Hall 11. Paolo Araldo is the distributor for Amcor Flexibles Capsules in Italy.
