About the instructor
Packaging and entrepreneurship came together at an early age for Dr. Andrew Hurley. As a young boy, he molded and sold pewter figurines, but inadequate shipping materials led to breakage. Frustrated, he set to researching better packaging alternatives … and he hasn’t ever stopped.
Dr. Hurley is an Associate Professor at Clemson University in the Department of Food, Nutrition, and Packaging Sciences. He leads the packaging design emphasis area, where he researches how to leverage packaging to solve even the toughest supply chain challenges.

Glass is a material that is widely used in the alcohol, soda, and food industries due to its perceived quality image, barrier properties, and tactile feel. Glass is the only material that is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity - something no other food and beverage packaging option can claim. This eLearning course teaches you how to source different types of glass packaging. It also covers the manufacturing, sustainability and design of glass containers.
