Containers showcased at 2010 International Home and Housewares Show
Kingsport, Tenn. — March 15, 2010 — Eastman Chemical Company announced today that its customer Home Concepts Products has introduced two product lines made with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester: Reynolds® Cleverware® and Michael Graves Design® Group premium food storage containers.
“By using Eastman Tritan™ copolyester for our new product lines, we are able to meet consumer expectations for high-quality food storage containers that also offer peace of mind because they are BPA-free,” said Michael Moghavem, CEO of Home Concepts Products. “Tritan also provides design flexibility, allowing us to create food storage containers that are user-friendly and tableworthy. Tritan has helped us achieve our goal of becoming a provider of BPA-free storage containers.”
Reynolds® Cleverware® and Michael Graves Design® Group food storage containers made with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester are tough, free of bisphenol-A, glass-clear, and stain-, odor- and shatter-resistant.
Reynolds® Cleverware® premium food storage containers are designed to be freezer- and dishwasher-safe. The line of stackable containers is available in 12 shapes, including oval, round and square, and comes in sizes ranging from 1 to 14 cups. Vented lids offer added flexibility, allowing for splatterproof reheating without the need to loosen the lid itself. Reynolds® Cleverware® provides consumers with a high-quality, functional container that allows them to serve, store, reheat and repeat while using only one serving piece.
The Michael Graves Design® Group premium food storage containers share the same high-performance and high-quality features as the Reynolds® Cleverware® containers, and are stylishly designed to be both functional and table ready. With large handles and flexible lids, the Michael Graves Design® Group containers make transporting food safe and easy. The Michael Graves Design® Group containers are available in six sizes, with storage capacity ranging from 2 to 14 cups, and can nest together for efficient storage.
The Reynolds®Cleverware® and Michael Graves Design® Group lines of containers will be featured at the International Home and Housewares Show (IHHS) Home Concepts Products Booth S345 and Eastman Booth S5021 on March 14 to 16, 2010, in Chicago.
