Is the Container glass Industry aligned to its customers’ expectations?
Glass has traditionally been the preferred packaging format for food & beverage. It has robust characteristics that are well understood and respected, as does it’s competition. The recent spotlight of NGO, media and increased consumer awareness upon the packaging industry to address many of societal over-consumption behaviours has put increased pressure on plastic above other packaging options, and rightly so. However, the container glass industry does face headwinds that need to be addressed. Richard and Emma will talk about the requirements of the package from a customer perspective, given their shared expertise in the Beer & Soft Drinks sectors, and provide some thought-provoking messages to spark debate regarding what aspects of customer expectations are realistic vs necessary.
