Dragon-taming twin sisters Lisa and Helen Tse have chosen Beatson Clark to produce glass containers for a range of sauces developed at their award-winning Chinese restaurant.
Lisa and Helen secured a £50,000 investment when they appeared on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den TV programme with their range of Sweet Mandarin Chinese dipping sauces. The sauces are based on secret recipes, handed down through the generations and named after the Manchester restaurant opened in 1950 by their grandmother, Lily.
Glass best preserves the taste and quality of food and drink. It acts as a single-layered natural shell to preserve untainted both the flavour and freshness of products, whilst also adding that little bit of extra elegance too.
Lynn Sidebottom, sales and marketing director at Beatson Clark, which specialises in low volumes for high-end niche food and drink manufacturers, said: “Glass is perceived as a high-quality packaging material but it needn’t cost the earth.”
