The annual Housewares Innovation Awards programme celebrates excellence in the housewares sector – and this year’s shortlist is no exception.
Organisers Housewares Magazine and www.HousewaresLive.net have revealed details of all the finalists across the programme’s five product categories – but the names of the winners will be kept under wraps until the awards ceremony, held on March 26 at Wokefield Park in Reading.
Taking place in the evening, this prestigious occasion will celebrate not only the best housewares products launched in the past 12 months, but will applaud the achievements of the best housewares retailers too. The host of the ceremony will be TV chef Malcolm Harradine, while the awards will be presented by Ben Ebbrell and Barry Taylor, founders and directors of SORTED, the UK’s largest social media cooking channel.
