Stewart Home to promote food storage and home growing ranges at Exclusively Housewares 2012

Stewart Home, the homewares division of UK manufacturer and distributor, Stewart, has chosen this year’s Exclusively Housewares exhibition to showcase its Essentials, Seal Fresh, Pro Kitchen, Refine and Zurbano ranges of food storage products and planters.

Refine is Stewart’s new premium food storage collection. Refine comprises a variety of food and drink containers – including the stylish Ice Cooler Jug - in a choice of vibrant complimentary colourways.

Zurbano, the elegant planters designed for both interior and exterior use, match the colours of the kitchen ranges to help create a fully co-ordinated setting in the kitchen, dining area or patio. Benefiting from Stewart’s renowned expertise in the gardening sector Zurbano is manufactured to a high quality finish featuring a polished metal band and is light to carry, highly durable and resistant to frost.

Essentials is a new “everyday food storage” range, based on key selling sizes and available in handy three-pack format, with the emphasis on value and quality.

Seal Fresh is the established Stewart range of quality food storage containers. Designed for easy opening and resealing, they are available in rectangular, square and round shapes, making them suitable for all food types. Cereal dispensers, jars and screw top beakers complete the range , whilst  the Seal Fresh label designs provide usage and storage information about the product. Seal Fresh containers are dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe and quality guaranteed for 10 Years.

Created for the professional caterer, Pro Kitchen products are modular, space efficient and, thanks to Stewart’s colour- coded Identiclip system, help prevent cross- contamination between foods. Products are provided with removable ID clips in different colours, each representing a specific food group. Nine models are available in sizes from 0.9 litres to 28 litres. Each storer is dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe and is backed by a 10 year quality guarantee.
