PET jar – glass alternative

Customer: One of the largest pickled fish producers in the Baltic States that traditionally used glass jars for pickling
Task: Help the customer develop light-weight container for herring, suitable for export
Challenges: ✓ Make the jar neck compatible with standard aluminium cap
✓ Come up with jar design that would seem like glass
✓ Ensure that oily marinade does not leak from the inside
Solution: ✓ Customized wide mouth preform with glass-like neck was engineered
✓ A number of different jar visualizations were produced and the customer chose the best design for them
✓ Induction sealing was proposed as an added safety measure ✓ The weight of the package was reduced 10 times
