Premier Foods does new valve headstand

- Last updated on GMT

Premier Foods is introducing a new headstand valve dispensing closure designed for the jams and condiments sector on Hartley's Squeezy Jam.

Rio, from Zeller Plastik, is a new standard lightweight 55mm headstand valve dispensing closure. It is more than 25% lighter than Zeller's current standard and utilises a large diameter valve for clean, convenient and effective dispensing.

There are two standard valve options: a two-slit version for preserves and a three-slit version for sauces or chutneys with fruit or vegetable particles. The closure can be supplied without a valve.

Drainage features are provided for manufacturers using water jets in their post-filling operation to cool hot-fill products. Induction heat seals provide an excellent hermetic seal and Zeller offers three-tab peelable or 'lift 'n' peel' options.

Hartley originally introduced its Squeezy jams in 2009.

The brand is part of Premier's jams and spreads division, which has reported to be up for sale.
