UK glass manufacturer Beatson Clark has transformed a standard hexagonal bottle for a range of products to be sold in the Oil & Vinegar retail chain

Dutch food company Wijndragers, which makes mustards, sauces and dressings, already uses Beatson Clark’s standard 250ml hexagonal bottle for a number of its products, but the company needed a bespoke bottle for a private label range to be sold in Oil & Vinegar stores worldwide.

Beatson Clark came up with a solution by embossing each facet of the hexagonal bottle with the Oil & Vinegar logo, which meant the customer could have a unique bottle with minimal outlay.

“Our customer Oil & Vinegar wanted a personalised bottle and Beatson Clark is the only company we know that is able to provide this embossing on this particular bottle,” said Christian Lensen, Sales Manager at Wijndragers.

“We’ve used Beatson Clark’s glass for more than 30 years now and their products are unique and of very high quality. If there’s a problem it’s mostly solved in a matter of days, so the service they provide is fantastic.

“We are absolutely satisfied with the result and so is our customer. The products are on sale now and the feedback so far has been great.”

Following recent investment in new sculpting software Beatson Clark is able to add improved definition and quality to its embossing.

And because it can emboss names, textures and logos onto poducts from its general sale range the company can produce unique bottles and jars at a much lower volume of around 150k units, when produced alongside the plain version of the container. This offers even small brands the opportunity to customise their product.
