The home, a place of safety extended to kitchen trends
Empowering a healthier and safer wellbeing, making positive lifestyle choices through socially responsible product is the key to making the overall cooking experience more enjoyable and create a healthier indoor environment.
This trend is driving the demand for cookware. Consumers demand more responsible choices, versatile pieces that fit into smaller spaces, and specialty new keys to wellness experiences that meet their needs.
Sustainability is already playing a bigger role in consumer decisions, interest in environmentally friendly products is increasing, creating opportunities within the cookware industry. The idea of a “throw-away” society is becoming increasingly repugnant to many people.
The cookware industry is part of this trend and wants to embrace it. Manufacturers have realized that it is possible to reduce their ecological footprint through the use of environmentally friendly materials and packaging. These factors have combined to make such new designs and materials popular with houseware producers and buyers.
Companies committed to environmental sustainability will have an advantage with focused consumers, as long as their products can provide quality and present good value.
Crafting a safe kitchen with eco-friendly cookware
Consumers have become more eco‑conscious. Healthy life is a trend that has received a lot of press over the past several years. This is also reflecting to home products that shows sustainable and green attributes, which consumers are more likely to purchase.
The emerge of cookware made from recycled and regenerated materials that we saw in this year‘s shows is a clear message that the industry is already bringing sustainable concepts into cookware products. A trend that not only affects the cookware body, but also extends its philosophy by embracing the handle, an essential component increasingly marked to play a primary role with the use of eco-friendly materials with high percentage of sustainable and recycled material.
In line with these emerging trends, we at F.B.M. can call ourselves full-timers in this area by being the first cookware handle manufacturer to introduce a new line of cookware accessories produced with natural and recycled material and called F.B.M. ECOSYSTEM.
