Beatson Clark is supplying a new bespoke glass bottle for the Caribbean Choice range of sauces from Grace Foods UK.
With an existing 15-year relationship between the two companies, Grace Foods UK – part of the Jamaica-based GraceKennedy group of companies – asked the UK-based glass container manufacturer to design a new bottle for the product range, which is due to be relaunched in June in the UK independent and wholesale trade.
Switching its Caribbean Choice Hot Pepper Sauce and Sweet Chilli Sauce out of squeezy plastic bottles, Grace Foods UK opted for a bespoke white flint 250ml square sauce bottle with an MCA3 neck finish, designed to fit with other containers within the company’s range, thereby optimising line efficiency.
Beatson Clark sales and marketing director Lynn Sidebottom says: “Retailing at 99p per bottle, Caribbean Choice is a popular value brand, but the plastic squeezy bottle meant it was out of step with most of the other chilli sauces on the [UK] market.
“This new glass bottle is a cost-effective packaging solution for our client which will greatly enhance the quality feel of the product.”
With a focus on flexibility, innovation and the high quality, Beatson Clark specialises in providing glass packaging solutions for niche brands in the food, drink and pharmaceutical markets worldwide.
