Three more housewares suppliers have signed up to sponsor The Housewares Conference & Innovation Awards 2015: Polder Housewares UK, CleverstiX and T&G Woodware.
New to the UK, Polder Housewares UK aims to offer consumers an ever-growing assortment of home goods to make daily tasks easier, from timers, thermometers and kitchen scales to kitchen storage, laundry and bath products. The goods are sourced solely from US parent company Polder, which was established in New York in 1976.
CleverstiX is an award-winning CleverstiX child development cutlery invention, which uses an ergonomic chopsticks-style pincer design. It is designed to focus hand-eye co-ordination, increase dexterity and improve feeding habits. CleverstiX are suitable for all cuisines, from pasta, noodles and chips to fruit. They are endorsed by the Science Museum in London and feature Hello Kitty and Kung Fu Panda gift versions.
