Constar International has entered into an Oxbar patent license agreement with Amcor Packaging under which Amcor will be able to supply its Australia and New Zealand customers with PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles having enhanced oxygen-scavenger protection for retention of product quality.
The initial application will be for packaging wine.
The Oxbar patents are licensed to leading converters and brandowners worldwide. Bottles made under licenses to the Oxbar patents protect oxygen-sensitive products including wine, beer, fruit-based beverages and foods in PET containers. Flavour, colour, and vitamin retention are among the benefits.
Constar International is a leading global producer of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic containers for food, soft drinks and water.
