Condiment producer switches from glass to PET


A Southwest supplier of specialty food products is now using Amcor Rigid Plastics' 32oz decanter-style polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles for its Brack Ranch Sweet Pepper Glaze.

Heritage Family Specialty Foods Inc. stated this move will provide entry into the club store market segment, with a launch late last year at Costco's locations throughout the Southwest.

Up until now, Heritage Family has only offered its Brack Ranch Sweet Pepper Glaze in 16oz glass containers for retail and specialty stores.

The PET bottle was chosen over alternative packaging options due to the container's ability to provide cost benefits and improved manufacturing efficiencies for club store distribution, stated Michael Moss, VP of Marketing for Heritage Family Specialty Foods, in a news release.
