French rubber specialist, Hutchinson, and its brand Le Joint Français par Hutchinson has been manufacturing its jar seals with unparalleled know-how in its Châlette-sur-Loing workshop since 1950, making it the only brand to manufacture its jars in France..

The covid crisis and the moments spent at home have seen consumers reconnect with the pleasure of cooking, home-cooking, while seeking more to consume locally, eat better and limit waste, but also to organize themselves in “batch cooking” to save time on busy schedules during the week.

Previously the prerogative of our grandmothers, preserves have become trendy again. Many magazines, sites and Instagram accounts talk about it, and their use is multiple: preservation of dry foods as in cooking shows, preparation of canned seasonal fruits or vegetables to enjoy them all year round, batch cooking of the weekend for the dishes of the week, and preparation in advance of large quantities of sauces or simmered dishes.

Historical know-how for seals made in France

The famous orange washer is the essential element for optimal conservation, ensuring the seal which guarantees the protection of food against any contamination.

Seals meeting all French and European standards

Complete control of the manufacturing process guarantees constant quality, controlled traceability and compliance with all French and European food standards, for the safety of consumers and the peace of mind of manufacturers and distributors.

The Hutchinson laboratory formulates and implements elastomer compounds intended for this market, and a team of experts ensures regulatory monitoring in order to obtain certificates of conformity validated every 3 years by an approved external body.

The washer The ideal easy opening with patented technology

“We are used to talking about noses to evoke the shape of joints. The 1 nose is our Classic washer, which you have to pull to open the jar. To offer our customers a really easy opening, our engineers have designed a washer with 2 noses, whose technology has been patented: all you have to do is spread the two tabs with your fingers to open the jar. The ideal is the only washer on the market that can boast of a real easy opening, the others generally requiring a pair of scissors or some other tool. explains Jérôme FUNEL, washers and jars market manager at Hutchinson.

Washers acclaimed by major French manufacturers

Product quality, compliance with food standards and French manufacturing have earned Hutchinson the acclaim of the largest food manufacturers. Many have trusted the Le Joint Français by Hutchinson brand for years to provide their customers with safe, quality food products.

A new range of jars for mass distribution

As part of its development strategy and in order to offer a full range of preservation products, Hutchinson also launched a range of jars and terrines in 2021 for the general public.
