After the earliest known creation of manmade glass, estimated to date back to 4000BC according to archeologists, it was around 1500BC that first hollow glass containers were made by covering sand core with a layer of molten glass. Since first century BC glass containers were commonly being made by blowing glass, a technology closely guarded by Romans. It was only after disintegration of the Roman Empire that the technology spread to Europe and the Middle East. Through constant research and development over the past centuries glass proved to be a material having unparalleled property of preservation of organic products and gave scope to satisfy man's fancy for beauty and creativity. The man gave free vent to his imagination in shaping glass in infinite ways for pleasure along with its need for preservation, which made the glass containers market grow without hitch despite competitive products.
