Glass... the complete package

We already know that a carefully considered diet is an important part of staying fit and healthy. But do we know enough about the containers that our food and drinks are packaged in?

A moment of clarity

The great thing about glass is that it is completely pure and organic. And given its organic nature, it's not hard to believe that glass is not only good for the environment, but good for you, too. As a result of the inert nature of glass bottles and jars, they don't mix or react with their contents, protecting them and leaving the choice of what you eat and drink entirely up to you. It's therefore no surprise that glass packaging has been tried, tested and trusted for thousands of years to be completely safe and reliable.

Glass is the only packaging “generally recognised as safe” by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

Glass is made from three natural substances – sand, limestone and soda ash – and needs nothing more, and it is the only packaging material rated “generally recognised as safe” by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Not only does glass keep your food and drinks safe, but its impermeable nature preserves their tastes, ensuring that their flavours remain exactly as they were intended to – mouthwatering and delicious
