Amcor Rigid Plastics: Certified Production Plants
Amcor Rigid Plastics, Manchester, MI, USA, producer of rigid plastic packaging, has announced that all manufacturing facilities have earned or will earn certification by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), a global retailer-driven program that seeks continuous improvement of food safety management systems to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to consumers worldwide.
Amcor has taken a leadership role in GFSI certification and is one of the industry’s first plastics packaging suppliers to gain certification, according to company information. As part of this customer-driven initiative, the company has certified 27 of its North American manufacturing facilities and three remaining newly acquired or greenfield plants are expected to be certified this fiscal year. Amcor undertook the effort in 2010 and expects all 60 of its production facilities in the Americas to be GFSI certified in early 2014.
