About Ball® Brand Preserving Products

Ball Products

Made to Share for Over 130 Years

The production of the first Ball® branded glass jar marks the beginning of a fascinating history. The Ball Brothers Glass Manufacturing Company began manufacturing fruit jars in 1884 in Buffalo, New York. After a destructive fire in the Buffalo plant, however, the five Ball brothers and their families relocated to Muncie, Indiana, where their business has become known worldwide.

As a leader in home food preservation, Jarden Home Brands is committed to continuing the tradition started by the Ball brothers and handed down through generations by providing quality products to help the world preserve garden fresh produce. We love helping people just like you make and share their homemade creations. We’re glad you’re here!
