Superb is a company that aims to bring home canning into the 21st century by making use of the latest advancements in sealing technology.

After reading through the company’s product descriptions, each of its canning lids has a little section in the product specs stating which country the product was made in. Some of Ball Mason Jar’s canning lids are made in China, Vietnam, and New Zealand, while others are made in the USA.
