Verallia North America, a glass container manufacturer has announced the introduction of a new line of single serve yogurt glass jars for national distribution.
According to the US-based Verallia, the new four and six ounce capacity yogurt containers extend the existing family of dairy glass packaging products of the company.
The containers also include a sealing primer that enables commercial yogurt producers to use traditional foil heat seal lids and induction heat sealing equipment in order to meet existing Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for proper packaging closure.
Verallia’s new containers serves as an eco-conscious alternative to standard plastic containers and are claimed to change consumer perception of the fast-growing food category.
Verallia North America food, beverage & spirits business sector senior vice president & general manager Phil McPherson said the glass jars offer commercial dairies and food producers a new packaging choice.
"Verallia North America has utilized significant resources to bring a line of single serve glass yogurt containers to the U.S. market," McPherson said.
