Cangshan, Bonnier Enter Saveur Selects Licensing Deal

Cangshan Cutlery Company has entered into a licensing deal with Bonnier Corp., publisher of Saveur magazine, as it expands its Saveur Selects licensing program. Cangshan will manufacture and distribute the new line of Saveur Selects kitchen knives and cutlery accessories.

The line will feature a variety of kitchen knives, including chef’s knives, paring knives, steak knives, and bread knives, as well as sharpeners, block sets, shears, cutting boards, and a full complement of kitchen tools and accessories.

“Partnering with a global brand like Saveur will help us expand our reach and enter a new phase of growth for our company,” said Henry Liu, president of Cangshan Cutlery Company. “We are thrilled to align ourselves with such a well-known and beloved culinary brand.”

Bonnier Consumer Products first announced licensing partnerships for Saveur Selects cookware and bakeware in 2019, followed by Savuer Select sauces, marinades and spice rubs, all of which are currently available online and in select stores.

“We continue to grow our Saveur Selects program, and we’re very excited to partner with Cangshan Cutlery Company to introduce our new line of knives and kitchen accessories,” said Elise Contarsy, svp/Bonnier Consumer Products. “Their innovative design and high-quality, professional-grade cutlery are the tools that the Saveur audience, and all home chefs, look for when cooking at home.”

The Saveur Selects knives and cutlery accessories will be distributed in the U.S. and Canada, and will be available at retail beginning late 2020.
