Amcor chairman Chris Roberts unveiled the new name for AAPD at Amcor’s annual general meeting.
Amcor announced in August that it would split AAPD from the rest of its operations.
Orora will focus on the fibre, glass, and beverage can packaging markets in Australia and New Zealand, plus packaging distribution in North America and Australia.
The new Amcor will focus on making flexible and rigid plastic packaging and tobacco packaging mostly for overseas markets.
