Why is glass so widely accepted as a packaging material?

Well – all manufacturers put in lots of effort to make their brand look perfect, taste the best, and satisfy customers in every way possible. Manufacturers desire that their products stand out from other available products. If the packaging is right, it does make a huge difference for the buyer. Glass is widely acceptable because it is non-permeable, which means it does not pass chemicals or odour to the food product which is packaged. Thus, glass packages are used to package dairy products such as cottage cheese, yogurt, milk, and other items.
