Manufacturing makes up more than half of the Filipino industrial sector and is responsible for more than a quarter of the country’s Gross Domestic Product. As a result of this, there is a high demand for industry solutions, especially packaging in the Philippines and since most companies prefer to use glass containers to package their products, there has been a steady rise in the number of glass manufacturers in the country.
Many companies in the Philippines prefer to package their products using glass due to its many benefits. Glass does not react with the products it holds; this keeps food and beverage tasting fresh and cosmetics and other chemical products are also kept uncontaminated.
The high demand for glass containers in the Philippines has resulted in the establishment of many glass bottle manufacturing companies, this article provides information on some of these glass bottle manufacturers in the Philippines.
1. San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation
Founded in 1890 when the need for packaging containers for beer, carbonated drinks, and dairy products arose and expanded to provide not only glass packaging but also a wide range of other packaging solutions such as metal cans, paper, mold, flexibles, plastics, and PET. San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation has its head office located in Metro Manila, Philippines, with many other offices in China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand. The company also has many distributors across the globe.
The glass bottles produced by this company vary in sizes and colors to meet the needs of customer brands. It has partnered with many companies including companies that produce food, beverages, dairy products, chemicals, and pharmaceutics.
In addition to producing glass and other packaging solutions, San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation offers other services such as package performance testing, package designing and decorating, and technical training courses.
2. Bestpak Packaging Solutions, Inc.
Located in Quezon City, Philippines, Bestpak Packaging Solutions, Inc. was founded in 1865 as a one-product packaging company, and it has expanded to become a large packing company with 3 other offices in the country.

3. Arcya Glass Corporation
Located in Makati City, Philippines, this company is self-proclaimed to be the largest producer of glass bottles for food and beverage companies in the Philippines. Founded in 1966, Arcya Glass Corporation has been producing varieties of glass bottles to cater to food-based industries in the country.
Unlike other companies on this list, Arcya focuses only on manufacturing glass packaging rather than a combination of different types of packaging. It manufactures both customized and generic glass containers to satisfy clients’ preferences, and the customized bottles can come in a variety of textures, shapes, thicknesses, and sizes.
The generic bottles, on the other hand, come in a limited variety of shapes and sizes. There are generally 3 basic kinds of generic glass bottles available; food jars, condiment bottles, and beverage bottles.
Although the decorating service provided by Arcya is not as elaborate as other companies on this list, the company can incorporate a logo or text to the side of the bottle while manufacturing. This choice is however only available when customized bottles are ordered.
4. ECPack General Merchandise
Based in Quezon City, ECPack General Merchandise attempts to fill the gap in the glass bottle manufacturing and supplying industry by providing services majorly to small-scale businesses. Most large glass bottle manufacturing companies tend to have a minimum order which is the lowest number of units a company can order.
This number is, most of the time, a lot more than many small-scale businesses can afford, causing a gap between large-scale manufacturers and small-scale businesses. ECPack, on the other hand, allows clients to order a smaller number of units, giving them the same access to glass packaging as large-scale companies.
ECPack partners more with cosmetic companies rather than food and beverage companies, because of this, many products cataloged by the company include cosmetic jars, fragrance bottles, and cream cases.
Located in Manila, Unlipack offers a wide variety of packaging to clients most of whom are cosmetics and food and beverage companies. Products cataloged by Unlipack include plastic containers, PET bottles, and glass containers.
The glass options include wine bottles, sauce bottles, milk jars, roll-on bottles, droppers, spray bottles, vials, amber bottles, and big jugs. The products are offered in several colors including clear, amber, and frosted. They are also offered in a variety of sizes which ranges from 15 milliliters to 1 liter.
