Of the survey’s participants, 88 per cent said they believed glass packaging best demonstrated high quality food products and 76 per cent of participants said they believed glass packaging best demonstrated high quality beverage products compared with other packaging types.
Glass food packaging
Of the survey’s participants, 74 per cent said they believed that glass food packaging is the “most natural and healthy” for you in comparison with pouches, plastic, cans and cartons. Similarly, 75 per cent of the participants said they believed glass food packaging is “least likely to impact or change the product’s taste”. 69 per cent of the participants said they believed glass food packaging tends to be most eye-catching on the shelf and most likely to gain attention.
Glass beverage packaging
At the same time, 73 per cent of the survey participants said they believe glass beverage packaging is the most natural and healthy for you when compared with plastic, cardboard, aluminium cans and cartons. Likewise, 75 per cent of participants said they believe glass beverage packaging is least likely to impact or change the product’s taste, while 67 per cent of the participants said they believe glass beverage packaging tends to be most eye-catching on the shelf and most likely to gain attention.
