Four products, which won the  Alufoil Trophy in 2013, have been recognised by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) with the award of a WorldStar 2014 for packaging excellence. The winning alufoil products were made by Constantia Flexibles and Amcor Flexibles and cover food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications.

Amcor were given the award for its Formpack with Advanced Blister Design, a pharmaceutical blister pack re-engineered so that the material consumption has been reduced by more than 30% in volume, while improving the moisture protection of the drug by over 40%.

Constantia Flexibles achieved a remarkable three WorldStars for its Cafetique, a single serve capsule containing a range of coffee liqueur flavours printed with high quality graphics on the alufoil lid; Die Cut Lid 2020, a new lidding concept which uses only 20 micron foil; and Feinschmecker pouch, a peelable, bottom gusseted pouch, which offers a new format in dry food applications.
