About the Founder
Founder & CEO, Dalcini Inc.
In 2010, Nita stepped away from her career in pharma/biotech and stepped into new role of motherhood. It was the same time that Health Canada banned the use of Bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles. The US FDA followed with a similar ban but neither country has yet extended the ban to food storage containers. Nita wanted a chemical-free container. Equally important was the need for easy-to-clean and sustainable food storage. When she couldn't find what she was looking for, she created them. DALCIN™ Stainless was launched in 2015 and are the award-winning solution to Safe, Simple, Sustainable food storage.
"Do you have 20 years experience or just one year’s experience repeated 20 times.”
There are approximately 5 million elementary students in Canada who have the potential of creating over 330 million pounds of garbage this year from lunches alone
Back-to-school is almost here, and it’s time to start thinking not only about 'what' to put in your kids’ lunches, but 'how' you’ll send it to address the 66 pounds of waste being created in Canada from school lunches.
the number one way we are consuming plastic and hormone-disrupting chemicals is via food consumption. Nobody wants toxic chemicals, but they are hidden in so many household items we use every day, including food containers, canned food, water bottles, utensils and more..
“Our focus has been on the environment, but equally important should be human health,” says Tandon, who is spearheading a National Litterless Lunch Day on Sept. 19 in order to raise awareness of the excessive waste school lunches produce.
Canadian brand Dalcini believes in providing the safest, most durable and low maintenance stainless steel food containers on the market.
Tandon’s goal is to provide a lunch-time solution for the five million Canadian elementary students who are being exposed to a cumulative daily dose of chemicals.
In an awards ceremony on March 5, Tandon, received the competition’s start-up award, coming out on top of a pool of 17,000 candidates from across Canada.
I recently found the unicorn of stainless steel lunch containers.
We love their Kids Lunch Container 10-piece starter pack, that contains two of each container so you always have a clean set! A meal prepping dream! Dalcini’s line is non toxic, dishwasher and oven safe.
These types of containers are lightweight, hold a lot of food and are dishwasher safe (this is key!).
Stainless steel food containers should be the norm. Light to carry, easy to use, store and clean. Without any hesitation, I recommend them.
Great product and customer service. The quality of stainless steel is superior to others I have tried.
The perfect addition to our collection! We are thrilled with our two piece lunchbox combo! I had originally bought one set in the fall and my kids fought over it so we definitely needed another! I love that the smaller container fits with its lid in the larger container so that everything is together.
