No drip honey jar lids
« on: February 23, 2006, 01:27:19 PM »
I have a friend who purchased some honey at a grocery store. The honey came in a plastic jar with a flip top lid. There is some wording on the label claiming that it is a no drip lid. This lid actually works. He is able to pour honey and not have it spill down the side of the bottle.

Does anyone know of a bee supply house with these no drip lids?

What are your favorite bottles and lid combinations?

Thanks

We have used the drip free lid for about 3 years now. It is simple to use and has a seal on the inside so when you tighten it down it also seals it. We love it and so do the customers. We get ours from Reids' Apiary or Lorann Oils.

Try Dadent:

Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled

And fired the shot heard round the world

I guess Reid's is a local supplier? Couldn't find their website on google.

Lorann Oils seems to be a candy flavor supplier. I checked out their website and I didn't find anything to do with honey jars.

Betterbee has some flip top lids, like you describe, featured in their catalogue, latest  issue, for 0.07 cents each for 1 - 1799 count.  0.5 1/2 cents for plus 1800. " One of the best bargins in the industry ", or so they say.

The lids are 38 mm and fit a variety of bottles.

I would say that ALL of the bee supply companies offer pretty much ALL the same " stuff " concerning honey containers. I like the " skep " bottles and use the 16 oz size for selling. You can do a search for plastic containers and usually end up going to the Bee Supply companies for them. There are countless plastic containers available in the country.

I do a little comparison shopping and settle for the best price with no sales taxes and closest for lowest shipping cost.

Generally speaking you will pay around 0.50 cents each  for 1 lb. plastic containers with lids, labels and shipping.
