Part of the relaunched packaging for The Bart Ingredients Company's market-leading spice range, the closure has been developed by Bart following consumer research which found that customers considered the awkward shape of most spice jars a hindrance to their particular cooking styles.
The resulting closure design, called the "Spoonkler," is an industry first. It features a flip-top cap that can be opened in two ways, either to reveal a collection of small holes through which the product can be sprinkled, or a full opening wide enough to fit a teaspoon.
Having developed the concept, Bart worked with RPC Design and RPC Halstead to produce a fully functional closure that could be commercially manufactured and was able to work reliably on high-speed capping lines. A particular challenge of the design is the opposing side hinges, which enable the closure to be opened in either spoon or sprinkle mode, and RPC Halstead has invested in special manufacturing equipment to enable this to be achieved.
The closure is injection molded in black polypropylene and features a gloss surface finish to maximize on-shelf appeal.
Spoonkler was launched across Bart's herbs and spices range in September 2012
