Flip-top Carton

ACMA launches Ecoshell a recycleable paper-based carton designed for the confectionery industry but is applicable to any compatible product.


Developed in partnership with Coesia Packaging Innovation Center, Ecoshell is a package characterized by an innovative design that allows to the user to enjoy a convenient dosage function with ease of use, without giving up on aesthetics. The new technology, developed by packaging machine manufacturer ACMA, a Coesia company, generates shapes that are not commonly feasible, guaranteeing uniqueness in appearance and great flexibility, thus allowing the customers to achieve an extensive degree of customization. Ecoshell is in fact scalable in size and proportions and flexible to different commercial purposes, depending on the type of product to be packaged.

PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community, offering new products, technologies and solutions, while implementing up-to-date protocols for a safe and successful in-person event. Attendee registration is now open.

Ecoshell has been developed with pilot applications in the Confectionery industry, a sector that has always been attentive to both shape and functionality of packaging. Moreover, Ecoshell is mainly intended for developed and mature markets, such as Europe and North America. The targets are consumers who are attentive to sustainability and aesthetics of the product, who prefer packaging that is green and functional on the one hand and captivating and original on the other. Ecoshell is perfectly suitable for the packaging of food products such as chewing-gums, dried fruit or candies. At the same time, it can be effectively used for items such as supplements and personal care products. The package is also designed to facilitate single dosage. As proof of its flexibility, Ecoshell can potentially be adopted for the packaging of products such as cotton buds or stick snacks.
