Beatson Clark has developed new bottles for M&S’ own-brand salad dressings range.

“OMET has agreed to sell Durst’s Tau label printing product line in North America.”

The new 235ml bottle was developed based on research conducted by English Provender Company, which found that consumers were having to throw away large amounts of residual salad dressing due to the wide neck of the previous 275ml bottle.

Featuring a narrower neck and simple design, the new bottle is claimed to provide comfort while pouring.

Technical considerations such as line constraints and fill speeds were taken into account while creating the new bottle to prevent unnecessary wastage.
