APPE has seen its thermaLite pasteurisable PET jar adopted by Marks & Spencer for its pickles supplied by food manufacturer G’s.

The wide mouth jars are manufactured using double-blow technology developed by APPE and Nissei ASB which can be hot-filled or pasteurized at temperatures up to 95°C. 

The lightweight product is up to 85% lighter than glass.

There are considerable benefits for companies switching over to the Thermalite jar as manufacturers do not have to change their filling lines, which avoids additional costs​,” said Nick Humphrey, business development manager, APPE.

As well as pickles, the containers can be used for cooking sauces, pesto, tomato-based products, relishes, chutneys, fruit purées, jams and spreads.
