The density of HORECA establishments relative to population is quite high, with Austria ranking 7th overall. Interestingly, Austria has the largest share of accommodation establishments compared to other HORECA establishments, which may explain why there is not so much one-way glass beverage packaging in HORECA: in unit terms, Austria is just under the EU average and in terms of tonnage, it ranks 12th, just above the EU average. This may also be due to high levels of reusable glass packaging in HORECA, as well as high levels of home-consumption of products packed in glass.
