To capture consumer’s interest, the overall appearance of the product must be attractive and pleasing. You can use this to your advantage by adding appealing details that show that your company is committed to sustainability.

In the same time, there is a growing demand for corporate sustainability among homeware industry and retailers are focusing their demand towards companies that can identify socially responsible practices.

3. Focus on key elements and accessories when developing eco-friendly cookware lines

Coatings and accessories are key elements in your cookware line. Use them to impress upon consumers that your product is committed to sustainability. This is your opportunity to show that the product offered is made with environmentally conscious elements without refuse to compromise on quality.

When you are looking at manufacturing a pot or pan that will appeal to modern consumers, handles, knobs and side-handles are important accessories of cookware which can make a distinctive statement if you are using sustainable materials.
To make this, our suggestion is to work with a partner that can provide high-quality products with a green proposition.

4.Marketing packaging for your cookware products is a crucial option

Consumers are evaluating everything about your product line before they decide to buy, including the way it is packaged. Don’t make the mistake of attracting a potential customer with products with the right colors and materials, offered at a price they are prepared to pay, only to have them walk away because the packaging doesn’t indicate the right information about how it was manufactured.

Do tell customers your perspective clearly and distinctly, informing that your products are made in an environmentally sensitive way. Use symbols and graphics to show them it, so there is no confusion, but always respect the indications of main regulations.

You can now share your achievement of superior environmental performance with stakeholders by using handles, side handles and knobs with performances that have been independently and objectively validated using UL’s rigorous science-based approach
