'Ideal packaging solutions' close at hand

25 March 2010

Johnsen and Jorgensen is supplying an extended range of glass jars and closures to Foxhill Foods. It comes as the firm continues to expand its business at home and abroad

Within the contract, Johnsen & Jorgensen now sources and supplies half a dozen different jar designs and closures which are used across Foxhill’s popular range of home-made cooking sauces, preserves, pickles and condiments.

Supplying to the independent retail trade, including convenience stores, delicatessens and farm shops, Foxhill Foods recognises the importance of professional, consistent and distinctive packaging design. In Johnsen and Jorgensen it has secured a local supplier that can fulfil its entire glass jar and bottle requirements.

Based in nearby Trafford Park, Johnsen and Jorgensen is able to hold all standard jar items in stock and supplies the client with up to 10 palettes a week to suit food production runs. Managing director Paul Gorvett commented: “Having a major packaging specialist literally on our doorstep has been a major advantage in terms of stockholding and quick delivery as well as when seeking ongoing packaging advice.

“After the quality of our food, the next most important thing for the trade and, ultimately the consumer, is the way a product is packaged and presented. When it comes to specific jar designs or closures we can always rely on Johnsen & Jorgensen to come up with a suitable solution and it has played its part in helping our food business develop a growing reputation at home and abroad.”
