How it is made 01

Step 01 - The Recipe: We use sand, limestone, soda ash and recycled glass in our glass recipe. Then the combined ingredients are sent to the furnace to melt.

Step 02 - Melting: Furnace heats the batch mixture to about 1,565 degrees Celsius, or 2,850 degrees Fahrenheit, creating molten glass.

Step 03 - The "Gob": The molten glass is removed from the furnace, cooled to a uniform temperature and cut into “gobs” to form glass containers.

How it is made 02

Step 04 - Forming: The gobs are diverted into forming machines and then mold them into beautiful, functional glass containers.

Step 05 - Conditioning: Formed containers pass through the lehr, a machine that reheats and gradually cools them to relieve any stresses and strengthen the glass.

Step 06 - Inspection: Finally, inspect the glass containers to make sure they meet our high quality standards. They recycle and remelt any containers that fail to meet these standards.


Glass main advantages

Taste: Glass is all about the taste buds. It preserves and presents flavor exactly as intended. When you eat or drink something packaged in glass, youʼre experiencing the pure taste of that food or drink Glass is the most neutral and natural of packaging materials.
Health: Glass is pure. Itʼs non-reactive and safe to use over and over again. It doesnʼt stain or hold leftover flavors. Glass also acts as a natural barrier—itʼs virtually impermeable to oxygen, so glass helps keep foods and beverages fresh and full of their natural vitamins, minerals and other health benefits.
Sustainability: Glass is made from three natural ingredients: sand, limestone and soda ash. It is the only package that is reusable and well as recyclable. When we use recycled glass to make new bottles, we use fewer raw materials and less energy.
Quality: Glass is the only packaging material that people are inspired to save, reuse, collect and display. Glass can take on a range of shapes, colors and textures. Glass is also brand-building. Glass is at the core of building thousands of successful quality and premium brands.

We offer various types of glass packaging

# Bottles for Spirit products: Glass bottles can be manufactured in a variety of creative shapes and colors, and when textures and embossing techniques are applied, the premium packaging is the perfect showcase for spirit products.

# Bottles for Beer products: A glass bottle preserves the freshness and taste of its contents, while offering that celebratory clink, so it’s perfect for beer. An amber glass beer bottle provides 99.9% protection from UV rays, and glass is a great insulator, so it keeps beer colder longer than any other type of single-serve packaging.

# Bottles for Beverage products: Consumers consider glass to be the premium packaging material, making it an ideal choice for the non-alcoholic beverage market. Glass containers are impermeable, air-tight and transparent, allowing consumers to see and taste the freshness of the beverages inside.

# Bottles for Wine products: For wine lovers, glass is the only packaging material that will do. Wine bottled in glass stays tasting great, and indeed, many bottled wines improve with age. Glass also allows brands to create a point of difference for themselves, through colour, shape and decoration.

# Jars and Containers for Food products: Glass provides the highest level of protection; nothing gets in or out, so food stays fresh and the taste of the product is preserved. It is also the only widely-used food packaging.

# Bottles for Flavoured alcoholic beverages: These are sold in an array of colours and flavours. Glass provides the ideal packaging, with endless creative possibilities for eye-catching designs and decorative techniques.

# Bottles for Pharmaceutical products: When product protection and safety are of the utmost importance, an inert material such as glass is the ideal packaging option. Glass packaging safeguards contents from oxygen ingress and cross-contamination, providing the ultimate protection.
