Marmalade supplier chooses UK packaging firm

20 September 2010

Worldwide supplier of traditional preserves, Mackays, has chosen Beatson Clark in the UK to supply its round 41ml glass preserve jar

“As our highly acclaimed, award-winning reputation lies solely within the excellent quality of produce, the container our preserves are in is key to maintaining the brand and its superiority,” said Paul Grant, MD of Mackays Preserves.

“We're pleased to be now using Beatson Clark, a British supplier recognised as a provider of quality glass containers and therefore a natural choice for our 41ml mini preserve jar.”

Beatson Clark already produces glass containers for most of Mackays’ award winning ranges and marketing manager, Charlotte Taylor, is delighted Beatson Clark’s commitment to quality, flexibility and excellent customer service has paid off once again. She said: “Having already produced a range of containers for Mackays’ it’s fantastic that they have chosen to work with us again!”

The white flint mini jar has a standard 43mm twist off neck finish and is taken from Beatson Clark’s extensive range of general sale items. The jar is being filled with marmalades, preserves and curds for Mackays’ gift packs.

Charlotte added: “Mackays products are designed to appeal to consumers looking for the very best ingredients and flavours so it is very important they're stylishly packaged to stand out on the supermarket shelves and also provide that element of quality particularly for the gift packs and the Hotel industry.

“UK consumers associate glass packaging with premium products so Mackays preserves and Beatson Clark’s high quality glass containers are the perfect match!”

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
