one ounce octagonal glass jars with metal lids
I am not certain if this is the correct forum category...but I would like to know if any are purchasing one ounce octagonal glass jars with metal lids for their honey sales. This is the size of jar honey is supplied to hotels for use in teas etc. and it seems they are also purchased as wedding/shower/event favours.
I ask as when at a symposium today in Vancouver BC the honey served with beverages at the breaks was in these tiny jars. I was surprised that it was from France!...a company called Bonne Maman. Each jar contained 23 ml of honey.
When I checked the product on line there was a wide range of price for the same product...yet all per KG of honey were very high. I presume most of the cost is for the jars and packaging.
There were several sites selling 1.5 ounce octagonal jars but I saw none that were like the tiny Bonne Maman jars.
I wondered where folks get them?
