Kitchenware International Jan Feb 2017
The February edition of Kitchenware International, the biggest to date, features extensive previews of the main Spring shows, including what kitchenware is being launched at Ambiente, Spring Fair and IH+HS Chicago. We spotlight a kitchenware category that is seeing burgeoning sales, that of giftable kitchenware, and we discover how this is enabling manufacturers to expand their distribution channels. Colour is predicted to make more of a market in the kitchen this year, and with Greenery the Pantone colour of the year, green especially is expected to dominate. Discover the latest green products to create a green display in this issue. Seven kitchenware companies talk industry growth, category expansion, and trends this issue, while three kitchenware retailers do the same. The director of BHETA, Will Jones, looks ahead with his debut column, and in another debut column, kitchenware retailer Ben Salmon of New Jersey-based Kitchen a la Mode discusses why trade shows matter.
