Innovative Packaging

Orora is powering innovation in packaging

At Orora, we’re always looking for ways to innovate packaging to keep you ahead of the competition - whether it’s redesigning existing packaging or creating new packaging solutions altogether. We are always looking for new ways to increase your competitive advantage and reduce your packaging costs. Here are just two of the ways Orora is innovating its packaging:

Calcium Films

There are 3 types of plastics commonly used in packaging materials – polypropylene, polyester and polyethylene. Polyethylene is the most commonly used and has endless applications. However, it is also one of the most damaging from an environmental or sustainable perspective. Therefore, GlobalFlex Orora has developed a patent-pending calcium powder-based film as a sustainable packaging alternative to polyethylene. For every normal pound of polyethylene, our new film contains 40% less oil and contaminants than standard polyethylene films. That means 40% less of the polymers end up in landfills. It’s also cheaper than traditional polyethylene packaging materials and can degrade in direct sunlight. These calcium films can be used in meal delivery kits, agricultural, and coffee packaging, among others. They also replace traditional polyethylene liners and sheets, like the kind that are used to cover produce in agricultural fields.

Orora Seal Boxes

Our manufacturing teams created new self-sealing boxes with adhesive tape already built into the boxes so that customers could cut down on material costs of purchasing both corrugated boxes and tape. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are ideal for ecommerce applications.
