A sustainable packaging solution for more than 200 generations, glass is experiencing a renaissance. Composed of abundant natural materials, it’s a safe and healthy choice for food and beverage brands because it is chemically inert, meaning it doesn’t interact with the products it houses. Its impervious nature also protects and preserves its contents, which increases shelf life. And technologies are being developed to enhance those natural properties by preventing UV rays, for instance, from passing through the glass and adulterating the contents.
