Debuting early next year during the Total Home & Gift Market at Dallas Market Center, the inaugural Gourmet Gold Housewares Awards will recognize products across home categories including Cookware/Bakeware, Kitchen Electrics, Kitchen Tools & Gadgets, Serveware, Cutlery, Barware, Cookbooks/Publishing, Kitchen Textiles and Beverageware.
“Dallas Market Center is home to some of the most prominent and respected names in the housewares industry,” said Cindy Morris, the center’s president and CEO. “Recognizing products that are innovative, stylish and exceedingly functional is tremendously important to the Market Center. We have one of the fastest-growing housewares marketplaces in the country, and we are privileged to share these products with our buyers.”
The awards are sponsored by Gourmet Insider, following the success of the magazine’s Gourmet Gold Awards, which each year recognize specialty foods. “Gourmet Insider is pleased to sponsor the Gourmet Gold Awards program, which spotlights the growing array of breakthrough gourmet housewares presented at the Dallas Market Center,” said Peter Giannetti, the magazine’s editor-in-chief. “Participating in the Gourmet Gold Awards program is an effective way for vendors at the market to amplify awareness of their creative efforts to bring exciting new products to their retailers and consumers.”
