European glass packaging production volumes have grown by 4.7% in the first half of 2011, according to figures from the European Container Glass Federation (Feve).
In the first six months of the year, Europe produced 10.6 Mtonnes of glass compared to 10.2 Mtonnes in the same period last year.
France was up 7.2% in production volumes with Germany up 7.1%, Italy up 6.4% and Turkey up 15%. According to Feve, the results signal a “recovered confidence from customers and consumers”.
Feve president Niall Wall said: “Glass packaging remains one of the reference materials for brands and retailers to deliver high quality food and drinks to both domestic and export markets because glass brings great added value while remaining at a competitive price.
“Such signals reinforce our confidence in the fact that consumers simply trust glass because of its environmental, health and taste preservation qualities.”

#WomensMonth: Do women shop differently?
06/08/2019 - 08:58
Is it outdated to believe women still shop differently to men? The clichés are men purchase for speed and women are more motivated by price, men are big online shoppers but women still like something tangible and prefer brick-and-mortar stores. While we celebrate Women’s Month in August, we look at how women are shopping whether it’s fair to say we’re moving into an age of gender-fluid purchasing.
