APPE’s ThermaLite pasteurisable PET jar is being used for a range of Marks & Spencer pickles supplied by food manufacturer G’s

The wide mouth jar was chosen because it offers the same crystal clarity as glass as well as delivering improved production line efficiencies and less environmental impact, according to the packaging solutions manufacturer.

G’s marketing director Anthony Gardiner said: “The clear plastic pickle jar has helped create an interesting point of difference in the pickled grocery market place. Our consumer research shows that they understand the benefits of a plastic container over glass but expect the same clarity as glass, as they are seeking to clearly see the product. The APPE solution has allowed us to overcome this from a hot fill pickle perspective where historically we have struggled to find a jar of suitable clarity.”

ThermaLite jars are manufactured using the unique double-blow technology developed by APPE and Nissei ASB which enables them to be hot-filled and/or pasteurised at temperatures up to 95°C.  Their light weight – up to 85% lighter than glass equivalents – offers efficiencies during transportation and filling, as well as safety and convenience benefits, and they are fully recyclable.

APPE said that the jars are also  unique as they can incorporate a metal closure to enable them to be used on existing glass filling lines.
