Americas: Ardagh releases three glass jars for food packaging

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, has introduced three new glass food jars for craft food producers on its BOB site.

The new food containers include a 5oz hot sauce bottle, a 9oz refrigerator jar and a 12oz mayo/salsa jar, which are made of traditional flint (clear) glass.

In 2017, Ardagh Group launched the BOB for a food site to reflect the growing demand for specialty food.

The market continues to increase, hitting US$148.7 billion in sales last year, which is a 9.8% jump in total sales between 2016 and 2018, according to the “State of the Specialty Food Industry” annual report released by the Specialty Food Association.

“The BOB for food site is the first and only website where craft food producers can buy 100% recyclable glass food jars by the pallet, direct from the manufacturer, with a credit card or PayPal account,” said John T Shaddox, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass division.

The BOB portfolio now includes nine craft food jars available for purchase in 12-pack cases, by the pallet.
