Roland Products has been named the U.S. distributor for Curtis Stone’s Kitchen Solutions cookware, tabletop and kitchenware, HOMEWORLD BUSINESS® learned recently at the July Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.
Through the new distribution agreement, Roland will offer a curated Kitchen Solutions assortment across a number of categories, including cookware, tabletop, bakeware and kitchen tools and gadgets, said Chris Wert, marketing executive for Roland.
Curtis Stone’s Kitchen Solutions program, developed via Stone’s Food Fight company in partnership with Salt&Pepper’s Harry Pourounidis, launched at the International Home + Housewares Show in March 2012 and has seen some acceptance in the independent and specialty gourmet retail channel.
According to Wert, Roland is getting Curtis Stone branded products into the warehouse now, in time for fourth quarter shipping. “Stone has great solid quality cookware, great design and reasonably priced gadgets,” he said.
Roland Products is also the U.S. distributor for such brands as Hurom, which focuses on electric juicers, and Fissler, best known for its pressure cookers.
