Mexican beer bottle manufacturer Fevisa is continuing to produce glass as usual.

The Mexicali-headquartered glass manufacturer said all its production lines were running as normal.

While glass making has been declared an essential business, the Mexican government had originally deemed beer as a non-essential industry at the end of March.

On April 6 it appeared to relent, re-instating it as an essential industry, but shortly afterwards clarified it was a non-essential business.

But breweries which export are still running – which means they require glass bottles to fill their beverages.

Fevisa’s President, Juan Rafael Silva Garcia, said “As Fevisa clients directly or indirectly export to the USA, we are running all of our lines.”

Fevisa serves the beer, Soft Drink, Wine, Tequila and food markets.
