Owens-Illinois to Showcase Sustainable Glass Packaging Solutions at Foodpro 2011
Leading glass container manufacturer Owens-Illinois (O-I) will be showcasing their sustainable glass packaging solutions at Foodpro 2011, the Australian international food processing exhibition.
Offering their expertise in design and production to the food and beverage industry, O-I will display high quality glass packaging solutions for the beer, wine, spirit, non-alcoholic beverage, food and ready-to-drink segments.
One of O-I’s innovations is the new Australian-made Bueno glass food jars in 24 options designed to preserve the flavour and freshness of food including fruit, vegetables, dairy and seafood.
The versatile Bueno range is available in three designs and two sizes, and is designed for use on existing production lines. The range features four tamper-evident closure systems including a plastic cap, foil lid, pop-top metal cap and screw-top metal cap, all suited for a variety of foods and occasions.
O-I will also showcase its recently launched 750mL glass bottles for the milk industry. Also suitable for various non-alcoholic beverages, the glass bottles have been specially designed to fit standard Australian and New Zealand milk crates ensuring convenient storage and transport.
The only Australian manufactured glass olive oil bottles, the Marasca olive oil range will also be on display at Foodpro.
O-I’s glass packaging is made from all-natural materials including sand, limestone and soda ash combined with recycled glass. Each O-I glass container undergoes a rigorous inspection process to ensure high quality.
The Foodpro 2011 exhibition organised by Diversified Exhibitions Australia will be held at Darling Harbour, Sydney from Sunday 10 July to Wednesday 13 July.
