Beyond looking and feeling like a premium package, glass packaging allows your product to be visible to the consumer while on the shelf. Glass containers provide a longer shelf life versus plastic packaging as well as having an advantage in sealing and resealing the bottle’s contents. Containers made using glass can withstand high temperature processing without distortion. Glass bottles and jars are start-up business friendly being easily used by home kitchens to make small volumes up to large scale volume businesses. Glass is also one of the most recyclable packaging materials available and has indefinite reuse value. Glass is inert and food grade safe, and is microwavable once the cap is removed.
Introduction to glass
Glass is the trusted and proven packaging for health, taste and the environment. It is also the only widely-used food packaging granted the FDA status of “GRAS” or generally recognized as safe, the highest standard. Glass bottles preserve the flavor of the product much longer than other types of packaging. Once hot filled and cooled down properly, glass can withstand the vacuum pressure which gives it a very long shelf life. This is because the material is less likely to allow contents to mix with air or other possible chemicals. Moisture is also less likely to get in the container, keeping your food safe from mold or going stale faster than you’d like it to. While plastic erodes over time, glass has to physically break to become contaminated. Properly handled glass is one of the sturdiest packaging product. 80 percent of consumers in a survey said that they believe that glass containers maintain the quality of the product better than other packaging. Glass is made from readily-available domestic materials, such as sand, soda ash, limestone and “cullet,” the industry term for furnace-ready clear broken glass. The only material used in greater volumes than cullet is sand. These materials are mixed, or “batched,” heated to a temperature of 1400 to 1500 degrees Centigrade and molded into the desired shape.
