John Kilner first established the Kilner business in 1842 in England. Initially producing glass bottles and jars, it was towards the end of the 19th century when the original Kilner Jar was first invented.
The original jar is as much-loved and successful now as it was 175 years ago. Its long-lasting popularity is owed to its distinctive pressure seal and iconic design.
Put simply, households all over the world trust it to preserve and pickle their fruit and vegetables successfully.
In the 1900s, Kilner presented its innovation as 'the original and the best, all other brands are substitutes,' a claim which remains relevant today and is a testament to its impressive heritage.
