Beatson Clark Jars Support Future Picklers

The winner Teresa with her chutney

Beatson Clark, a leading UK glass packaging manufacturer, is pleased to be supporting the country’s future ‘picklers’ in conjunction with Trackelments, purveyor of fine mustards and preserves. 

Each year Tracklements encourage Wiltshire school children to learn about food and where it comes from by involving them in the creation of a Crabapple Jelly.  The children pick the apples and learn how it is turned into the Jelly via boiling and straining through muslin.  For every jar of Crabapple Jelly sold, 25p is then donated to the school.  Tracklements is also part of the renowned ChutFest event at Barrington Court, whereby pickler’s and chutney enthusiasts from around the UK gather to taste each other’s creations.  Teresa Udall, winner of the best chutney 2010, had the opportunity to go to Tracklements for a day and watch as her recipe was created and bottled for sale at this year’s ChutFest.

Beatson Clark, supplies the traditional styled clear 228ml jar with a 63mm twist off neck finish for both these projects.  The jars, chosen from Beatson Clark’s extensive general sale range, perfectly compliment both the children’s Crabapple Jelly creation along with Teresa’s winning chutney recipe.

Guy Tullberg, managing director of Tracklements said: “Both projects are a fabulous way to encourage more people, no matter what age, to enjoy preserves.  The children love learning about the jelly and how it is made.  So much so that with part of the money generated by the sales, the school has created its own ‘environment zone’ garden, which includes a crabapple tree as its centrepiece.

“This type of environmental awareness education fits in perfectly with the containers we use from Beatson Clark as glass is infinitely recyclable and the perfect choice for environmentally friendly packaging.  Glass also adds an air of quality about a product it holds, which certainly portrays our brands perfectly.”

Beatson Clark also provides Tracklements with its vinaigrette and ketchup bottles, along with jars for its relishes, sauces, pickles and jellies.

Charlotte Taylor, marketing manager for Beatson Clark commented: “We believe these are fantastic projects.   To help children, not only, understand the basics of food production but also the environmental impact of the packaging used to contain the produce is a great start to encouraging future generations awareness of recyclable packaging. Glass is an ideal choice for food products as it does not contain harmful chemicals, is sustainable and recyclable.”
