News: Beatson Clark get spicy


Rotherham glass manufacturer Beatson Clark has come up with an innovative new spice jar which can be used with two different caps.

Working with its sister company, distributor Pont Europe in the Netherlands, the design team at the Greasborough Road firm created a new bespoke 100ml jar for Belgian spice brand, ISFI.

The unique neck finish accommodates both a standard grinder and a standard flapper cap, which means there is no need for ISFI to purchase two sets of neck equipment for the same jar.

Bas Van Der Knaap, purchasing manager at ISFI Spices, said: "We had the idea but we needed to find a manufacturer which was prepared to work with us to come up with a design solution.

"We worked with Beatson Clark through Pont Europe and we were very pleased with the design that they produced.

"Not only will this new innovation save us money on mould equipment, it will also enable us to consolidate five spice jars in our range to just three."

The new product is already being sold in Belgium, and Beatson Clark plans to offer the new neck finish for other spice jars in its portfolio.

Back in the UK, Beatson Clark has picked up the contract to supply Nazirs for its rebranded range of curry pastes.

Available in B&M stores and online, the Nazirs range produced by Olympic Foods, is now sold in a 298ml paste jar from Beatson Clark'd general sale range.

Nazir Uddin opened Bombay, Manchester's first Indian restaurant, in 1933 and by the 1950s he was packing pastes, sauces and chutneys into jars for retail sale under the Nazirs brand.

Charlotte Taylor, marketing manager at Beatson Clark, said: "Our general sale range features some brilliant designs which offer fantastic stand-out on shelf, and they’re an excellent way to test the market or launch a new product without investing in a completely new design."
