The closures have hinged flaps with indentations underneath to facilitate opening. The line is color-coded into four broad marketing categories: green for “fine herbs” like basil, yellow for “aromatic cuisine” like crushed cinnamon, red for “refined mixes” like fish spice salt and brown for “exquisite herbs."
