Packaging of food, beverages and chemicals in glass bottles and jars is classified as glass packaging. Glasses offer excellent barrier properties; they do not react with other chemicals, and are highly sterile and reusable. Glass is broadly used in packaging food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, personal care products, wines, ciders, beers, etc. Glass bottles are available in various shapes, sizes and colors. For instance, dark colored bottles are often used in packaging beer, as these resist over-fermentation of beer. Wines and ciders are packaged in dark colored bottles. This helps in storing the bottles for a long period of time.
