Glass packaging manufacturer helps give food producer new look for 50th birthday

GLASS packaging manufacturer Beatson Clark has been helping Cottage Delight to update its packaging with a renewed focus on sustainability as the company celebrates its 50th birthday year.

Cottage Delight sells hand-made food products such as jams and chutneys in 36 countries worldwide. Beatson Clark has worked with the firm for over 20 years and supported its major packaging rebrand in 2018 by creating three new bespoke glass containers.

Now Cottage Delight is removing the mop cap and elastic band from its jars and replacing them with aluminium lids, which means the packaging will be 100% recyclable.

Beatson Clark has redesigned the bespoke 302ml jar – the main jar in the range – to have a deep twist-off neck finish, which the firm said gives it a ‘modern look’ and provides a larger area on the cap for printing.

“We are delighted with the new look 302ml jar,” said Sarah Williams, marketing director at Cottage Delight. “Working with the Beatson Clark design team has enabled us to create a more contemporary jar, while retaining a feel of heritage. The revised shape also means a more efficient jar for our production line and it will allow more accurate application of the front label.”

Dawn Pugh, sales and mrketing director at Beatson Clark, added, “Everyone at Beatson Clark would like to send their congratulations to the team at Cottage Delight for reaching the milestone of 50 years in business. It’s a pleasure to have such a positive and long-standing relationship with customers, and we wish them the best of luck for the next 50 years!”
