Ardagh Group Launches the First Website for Direct, Online Purchase of Glass Food Jars and Bottles by the Pallet

Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a division of Ardagh Group (NYSE: ARD) and a leading producer of glass containers for the food and beverage industries in the United States, today launched an expansion to its BOB site (BuyOurBottles.com) for craft food producers to purchase glass food jars and bottles direct via the online store.

The launch of the BOB site for food (food.buyourbottles.com) reflects the growing demand for specialty food. The market continues to increase at a phenomenal rate, hitting $127 billion in sales, which is a 15 percent jump in total sales between 2014 and 2016, according to the “State of the Specialty Food Industry” annual report released by the Specialty Food Association and market researcher Mintel and SPINS/IRI.

“The BOB site for food is the first and only website where craft food producers can buy glass food jars and bottles by the pallet, direct from the manufacturer, with a credit card or PayPal account,” said John Orr, Vice President of Craft Food Sales for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass division.

Manufactured in the United States out of high-quality, traditional flint (clear) glass, Ardagh Group’s BOB for food platform offers six different products:

  • A 12oz ring neck sauce bottle
  • A 16oz mayo jar
  • A 16oz mason jar
  • A 17oz BBQ sauce bottle
  • A 26oz mason jar
  • A 32oz mayo jar

All six products are available for purchase in 12-pack cases, by the pallet, by visiting food.buyourbottles.com.

“We are proud to manufacture American-made products that are environmentally friendly and 100% endlessly recyclable,” said Orr.

In 2012, Ardagh Group launched BOB for beer – the first website to offer craft brewers the ability to purchase beer bottles online in pallet quantities, direct from the manufacturer.

Ardagh Group is dedicated to the craft food market with capabilities and resources to grow with customers every step of the way. For customers interested in purchasing glass jars and bottles by the pallet, the BOB platform offers convenient online ordering, and payment via credit card or PayPal. For glass containers by the truckload, customers can contact Ardagh Group directly at 856.455.2137 or marketing.glass.na@ardaghgroup.com.

For more than 125 years, Ardagh Group has been producing innovative glass bottles in the U.S., and is the leading glass supplier to the U.S. food market. For more information about Ardagh Group’s glass packaging, go to www.ardaghgroup.com/glass
