Related party transactions and arrangements
We have an equally-owned glass production plant joint venture with Owens-Illinois. We have entered into various contractual arrangements with affiliates of Owens-Illinois primarily for the purchase of glass bottles used largely in our imported beer portfolio. Amounts purchased under these arrangements were $9.1 million and $88.5 million for the three months ended May 31, 2020, and May 31, 2019, respectively. The decrease in amounts purchased for the three months ended May 31, 2020, was largely driven by reduced production activity at our Mexican breweries in response to COVID-19 containment measures.
