India- Market survey shocks the Glass Industry

A recent ORG-Marg survey, conducted for the glass industry, has kicked up a storm in the alcohol and pharmaceutical industries vis-a-vis the glass industry.

The survey says that despite government regulations, many companies use recycled bottles and the recycled bottles used by pharma and alcohol companies are not cleaned and sanitised under hygienic conditions. “the cleaning and sanitisation process in distilleries is most inadequate. none of the distilleries have sufficient cleaning facilities as in breweries and soft drink bottling plants. they depend on unorganised second-hand bottle dealers to clean bottles using only plain cold water and sometimes sodium bicarbonate.

The water is often reused for several bottles. all the distilleries use the same washing facilities designed for new bottles to wash second-hand bottles too. a simple rotating water main with vertical water jets covering a segment of one-third of a circle in a few seconds is the only washing facility available,” says the survey. shocking as this may be, the survey gives a breather to soft drink and beer lovers.
