Why does Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire sauce have a brown paper wrapper?
A. When Lea & Perrins® first started exporting Worcestershire sauce around the world, it was found that some of the bottles would break during the lengthy sea voyage. A practice of wrapping each bottle individually in a paper wrapper was devised to protect the bottles and prevent breakage. The practice of wrapping bottles, although no longer technically necessary, has endured. The distinctive paper wrapper with Lea & Perrins branding printed on the front is a recognized symbol that reassures customers they’re purchasing the ‘original and genuine’ product.
