According to latest data gathered by FEVE, glass packaging production in Europe increased by 2% in weight terms and 2.4% in unit terms in 2017, indicating another strong year for the industry. A total volume of 21.5 million tonnes or 78.1 billion units were produced in Europe for the EU and global food and beverage markets. This result confirms the steady growth trends of the last years driven by exports as well as continued demand for glass packaging in food and beverage segments in Europe.
