There’s nothing quite as comforting in the autumn months as a dish that is enhanced with warming spices and tangy herbs that lift the flavour of your food and seem to hug you from within! We want to celebrate all things spicy and have put together a short list of the best spice recipes we can find online so you can have a go at making them yourself. Luckily for you, here at Ampulla we also have a great range of plastic and glass spice jars that you can use to store all these ground spices in. But first things first, the food!

Spice Jars

We have a fantastic range of spice jars that come both made in plastic and in glass. If you’re a manufacturer, this gives you the option to market your brand at either end of the price scale. Even if you’re buying these jars for home use, it’s nice to have the option! Plastic is great if these jars are going to be in contact with and used by young children, however glass adds an air of quality. Check out our best spice jar deals below…

Plastic Spice Jars

Our 65ml Plastic Spice Jar is the smallest plastic spice jar we have available, making it a great, cost-effective option for placing on cafe and restaurant tables where it can be regularly refilled for customers. The price for this jar starts at 55p per unit, but can go as low as 34p per unit when you buy in bulk quantities!

Glass Spice Jars

Our range of glass spice jars is more limited than our plastic spice jar range, however we do not slack on quality! We have two sizes of glass jars: 100ml and 140ml.

Our 100ml Glass Cylindrical Spice Jars come complete with twist off lids, in a choice of two colours: gold and silver. The lids are rubber-lined to seal in freshness and to prevent leakage. The straight, smooth sides of this glass jar makes it easy for you to add your own labels or stickers.
