July 11, 2014-- Home Textiles Today,
Atlanta – Housewares exhibitors at The Atlanta Gift & Home Furnishings Market, going on now through Tuesday at AmericasMart, are showing products that tap into consumers’ desire to eat healthy.
A range of introductions target consumer’s interest in incorporating more fruit and vegetables into their meals or adopting a low carb or gluten free diet.
Exhibitors like Harold Imports and Microplane showed variations on gadgets that create long, julienne strips of vegetables and can be used to replace pasta. Microplane’s new Spiral Cutter, which resembles an old fashioned manual pencil sharpener, and works in a similar fashion, makes ribbons out of fresh vegetables, such as zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, and radishes. Available in black and green, the new Spiral Cutter will be available at retail in August for $14.95 suggeted retail.
Gourmac’s Garden Colander resembles a tote and can be used for picking produce in a garden, or at a farmer’s market, then put into the sink for cleaning. Available in three colors – chartreuse, taupe and eggshell – for a $19.99 suggested retail.
Huron’s Elite Slow Juicer has been redesigned to make it easier to assemble and clean. It has a higher juice yield and creates a smoother texture, said Christopher Wert, marketing manager for Roland, the distributor.
