On 20 February 2014, the ACCC announced that it will not oppose Amcor Ltd's (Amcor) proposed acquisition of Detmold Group’s Australian flexible packaging operation.

Detmold competes with Amcor in the supply of value-added flexible packaging, particularly to manufacturers of fast moving consumer goods.

The ACCC concluded that the acquisition of Detmold’s Australian flexible packaging operations would be unlikely to substantially lessen competition.  In reaching its decision, the ACCC found that actual and potential import competition was likely to continue to provide a strong constraint on Amcor following the acquisition.
