Steklarna Hrastnik, a global leader in the production of special bottles of super premium quality, together with its partners organised a workshop called Premium Packaging Open Day in Glasgow on 27 March. It was held under the auspices of the British-Slovenian Chamber of Commerce and the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and garnered a great deal of attention and received numerous positive responses.
Workshop participants learned about the latest trends in the production of bottles. The workshops are part of activities designed to promote the One Stop Shop service whose aim is to provide a comprehensive service ranging from conceptual design to the end product for clients in the field of design, production, decoration, and bottle stoppers.
Steklarna Hrastnik’s partners in the organisation of the event included Dekorglass, the leading Polish company in the field of innovative decoration; Steklarna Rogaška, a Slovenian manufacturer of tableware and packaging products from crystal glass; Labrenta, the leading Italian manufacturer of bottle stoppers; Swarovski, a world-famous producer of crystal cut creations; and Croxons, a distributor of packaging glass.
The event was attended, among others, by representatives of companies and organisations such as William Grant, Chivas Brothers, Distell, and the Scottish Whisky Association.
Andrej Božič, general director of Steklarna Hrastnik says: “We’re pleased that 85% of all Scotch whisky producers attended the workshop. Building upon the synergies with our partners for the One Stop Shop service, we’re confident that our high- quality production, flexibility, and the ability to produce in small series make us an excellent choice for both the large as well as the small, boutique producers of spirits.”
Glasgow was not chosen randomly as the place to promote Steklarna Hrastnik’s One Stop Shop service. In fact, Scotland is endeavouring to create conditions for long-term growth of its spirits industry thereby ensuring that Scotland remains the leading producer of quality spirits. The export of spirits constitutes as much as 75% of Scottish exports in the field of food and drink with their numerous distilleries receiving over 1.6 million visitors each year.
