Weck jars. Simple and inspired.

In 1895, Johann Weck (born 1841 in Schneidhain near Königstein) acquired the patent and sole distribution rights for these preserving jars. Weck jars, with their famous strawberry logo, are still used today to ensure all kinds of foods remain fresh, palatable and full of flavour for several years.
