Chadwicks develops lid for premium yogurt range
Pre-cut lid and shrink sleeve manufacturer Chadwicks of Bury (part of the Clondalkin Group), has developed an aluminium lidding material to seal to glass.
Developed in-house by Chadwicks, the decorative lids have been produced for a new premium yogurt range from Alston Dairy.
Ken Dunlop, sales manager at Chadwicks said: “Typically, sealing pre-cut lids to glass presents many technical difficulties, however when Alston Dairy approached us about developing a new type of material capable of sealing to glass jars we rose to the challenge. Alston also required a ‘crimped over’ lid to emphasise the premium nature of the range.
“Working in partnership with our sister company Royal Vaassen in the Netherlands, we developed a material that provides an optimum sealing solution for glass, and teamed up with Seal-it-Systems to create the desired ‘crimping’ effect. We now have another great addition to our lids portfolio, which has provided Alston Dairy with a high quality lid that delivers enhanced shelf appeal for its premium product range.”
Emma Coupe, development director from Alston Dairy said: “Chadwicks continues to impress our new product development team and we are delighted with the finished product.”
