Our success story with

Drivers Pickles

The Driver family can trace its roots back to the mid 19th century when they first started serving the local community with a grocery shop in the market town of Ibstock, then later in City of Leicester.

The Driver family started producing pickles to sell in its shops around 1902, the demand was such that in 1906 Driver’s Pickle and Vinegar Company was established by Frederick Charles Driver. Its main business centred around Pickled Onions and Malt Vinegar selling to local fishmongers and to other grocery shops in and around Leicester.

More than 100 years on, the company today is owned by the fourth generation of Driver’s and continues to produce their pickles in the same tradition as in Fredericks era.

Working closely with drivers over numerous years, Pattesons has grown to understand Drivers Pickles requirements and needs, allowing for a long-stand relationship to develop. Having this longstanding rapport, Drivers approached Pattesons with their next project. Their goal was to collaboratively embark on a journey to create a range of distinctive glass containers perfectly tailored to house their diverse selection of delectable, pickled products.

Harnessing the wealth of experience garnered throughout our extensive involvement with Drivers, Pattesons took the lead in responding to this creative challenge. Our journey began with an exploration of what was possible by customisation, that could be seamlessly integrated into an existing glass jar design. The result: a reimagined classic, the Half Gallon Pickle Jar.

In addition to this, our innovation extended to the creation of a bespoke solution for the 380ml and 580ml Hexagonal Jar variants. This bespoke design not only met the functional requirements of preserving Drivers' signature pickled offerings but also encapsulated their brand's essence within the very contours of the glass.

In the grand tapestry of the culinary world, where every flavour tells a story, our partnership with Drivers led to the crafting of three bespoke glass jars, that not only safeguarded their pickled treasures but also contributed to the overall experience of enjoying these delights. This project stands as a testament to the power of collaboration, innovation, and the artistry that can be achieved with glass.
