Glass protects and contains everything from baby food to conserves and many of the drinks we consume. As a container, it has unique properties which makes it essential in the food sector. Thus, the glass container is…
Hygienic: it is an impenetrable barrier and withstands high temperatures which permit sterilization.
Chemically inert: it does not release substances into its contents or the environment, thus keeping the original properties of food and drinks intact.
Aseptic, thanks to its inorganic nature and to strict food safety standards in its manufacture.
Transparent, with nothing to hide, so that the food inside can be seen.
Safe: hermetic and waterproof, it guarantees the conservation of the quality of the food, even during long periods of storage.
Stable: it is not affected by oxidation or environmental corrosion. Its resistance to heat makes it suitable for pasteurization, bain-marie or its safe use in microwaves.
It does not change shape and, consequently, the whole of the product can be used avoiding food waste.
Versatile: It can be moulded into a wide variety of designs that give identity to the product and it can use colour to protect the contents most sensitive to radiation.
Natural: It comes from raw materials that are abundant in Nature and, in the undesirable case of it being left in the environment, it erodes like any rock, without affecting the trophic chain.
Reusable when logistics and market conditions are appropriate and environmentally favourable. Always 100% recyclable without losing quantity or quality: having just one layer facilitates recycling it and the process is simple, integral and infinite.
