Product description and packaging

Marmalade is typically considered to be part of the jam category. Jam is produced by taking mashed or chopped fruit pulp boiling it with sugar and water. The proportion of sugar and fruit varies according to the type of fruit and its ripeness. Jams are usually produced using one of two methods. The first is the open pan method, which is like home jam making. This gives a traditional flavor, with some caramelization of the sugars. The second process involves the use of a vacuum vessel. Fillings are commonly flamed to sterilize the rim and lid of jars to destroy yeast and mold which can cause spoilage during storage. Production or manufacture is handled by a manufacturing company. With most private labels, these companies can offer you the best and highest quality production, which you can oversee with full transparency from the manufacturer. Private labeling not only ensures the best quality products but also takes care of the packaging and distribution. Packaging is what grabs the attention of consumers. The most common method of preserving and storing jam is with glass or plastic jars but cans or plastic packets can also be found.

Variety of products for private labeling

With the increase in numbers of private label manufacturers, there are a wide variety of professional ones to choose from. And the developing market of private labels has driven manufacturing companies to develop all sorts of assortments of jam products. Jam varieties include tart apples, sour blackberries, cranberries, currants, gooseberries, concord grapes, soft plums, and quinces. Other fruits in jams can be apricots, blueberries, cherries, peaches, pineapple, raspberries, rhubarb, and strawberries. Strawberry jam is the most popular. Marmalades can be made from lemons, limes, grapefruits, mandarins, sweet oranges, bergamot, and other citrus fruits.
