Four glass containers made by Owens-Illinois Inc. were winners at the Glass Packaging Institute’s 2013 Clear Choice Awards.

The awards program recognizes achievements in creating innovative glass packages with shelf impact. Entries were judged on innovation, package design, and consumer appeal.

The O-I winners were Starbucks Iced Coffee (nonalcoholic beverage category), Jack Daniel’s Unaged Tennessee Rye (spirits category), Kona Longboard Island Lager (beer category), and Tostitos Salsa football jar (food category).

“This year’s winners demonstrate that glass effortlessly conveys a superior image,” said Shawn Welch, vice president of sales and marketing for Perrysburg-based Owens-Illinois. “Numerous food and beverage companies recognize that glass is the optimal packaging choice because it preserves the integrity of their products, is 100 percent and endlessly recyclable, and provides unmatched product differentiation on store shelves.”
