Ball Says: “Consumers staying home over the last months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has resulted in shifts in demand for food storage containers like Ball® branded glass jars and lids. Ball and the entire canning industry have experienced an unprecedented demand. The demand has resulted in supply constraints, extended lead times, and recently limited product availability at stores and online. ”
Unfortunately, Ball seems to be favouring the big corporates in the USA as such they will give no indication when they will be supplying internationally again.
We recommend you look at the French and German-made Le Parfait, Weck, and Rex (rather than the low-quality, lead-based Chinese jars.) These alternatives have been manufactured in Europe for over 100 years and are more than twice the thickness of the Ball brand.
