First, Kanary will confirm your specific jar packaging needs. If you aren't sure what you need or want to hear options, our experts can help determine what kind of packaging would be best. We will also confirm if you need customization or branding services, and whether standard jars or a prototype jar would be the best fit. If you need a prototype jar, Kanary can put you in touch with patent lawyers to make sure to avoid any specific design patents on jars you need.
Once we have made sure we understand your specific needs, Kanary begins a supplier search. Our team starts with a list of 30-50 potential suppliers and narrows down the selection based on lead times, pricing, specific expertise, production capacity, and other related factors. When our team narrows the list down to 3-5 suppliers, we begin a more thorough vetting process.
Kanary's vetting process involves multiple steps, including speaking with factory managers and owners, inspecting factories in-person, and examining quality control protocols in place. Our team schedules and manages the sampling process, and we help evaluate all factors before you make a final selection of a factory you can trust.
After a final selection is made, mass production begins. Kanary supervises the entire process, remaining available to respond to factory issues as needed. As products are complete, our team ensures that they are stored safely and appropriately until your order is complete. Our team also books containers and schedules sea freight shipping on your behalf.
Kanary monitors your shipment while it's in transit, and we tell you the documents you need to prepare in order to clear customs. If there is a customs delay, our team can help you navigate issues, making sure to keep delays to a minimum, when possible.
After your order clears customs, Kanary coordinates with domestic freight partners for final delivery. If there are issues with products upon delivery, our team also serves as a liaison between you and the factory, helping to resolve any problems to your satisfaction.

Sourcing glass jars with cork lids can potentially be complicated, since there are at least two kinds of materials that need to be sourced and assembled. First, you need to find a supplier of the glass and for the cork. Depending on the kind of lid, you may also need a metal supplier (especially for airtight lids).
You may decide to find your own raw material suppliers, or you could look for a factory that already makes the kind of product you need (with either sourcing exactly what they're making or working with the factory to make customizations).
Finding multiple suppliers (or even one single supplier that specializes in the kind of packaging you need), can be challenging, especially if you're looking to buy directly from China. If you don't believe you have the time or resources needed to properly vet factory options, then you may want to consider the help of sourcing experts, like Kanary, to handle the process on your behalf.
