How long is a piece of string
Hi

what are the guidelines for 1.5 oz jars / labels please ?
I’m sure I read somewhere the info is different to standard size jars . But I maybe wrong ?

You can get the statutory information on a circular label on the lid ...easier on the eye than a label on the side of the jar and you see more of the honey...

Just another thought before I go ahead with this . What is it like filling these tiny jars with out a filling machine?
I don’t want to end up in a right mess 😂

I just fill them from a bog standard honey gate valve, just trickle the honey out, when the pot is full, put it down on the worksurface below the tap then move a new jar over in between drips.

I fill them from a jug ... line them up and just go along the line - if you are careful the drip goes into the next jar in the line.

Sounds like I’m ready to go then. Or was I trying to find a excuse for a filling machine 🤣

Freeman Harding Honey Labelling in the UK have this information
3. The minimum height of figures on the label must be as follows: <50g - 2mm; 50-200g - 3mm; 200g-1kg - 4mm; >1kg - 6mm
There is other stuff about labelling there as well:ROFLMAO:

Yes, for normal size jars - these rules do not apply to 1.5 oz jars

For filling those small jars Thornes did sell a pump dispenser that sat in a 30lb bucket lid similar to hand soap dispenser. Google it not sure there still available.
