Meet the Founder

DALCINI™ Stainless is an award-winning brand of durable, chemical-free, eco-friendly housewares. 

In 2009, Nita Tandon stepped away from her career in pharmaceutical science to become a mom. That same year,Health Canada issued a ban on BPA in baby bottles, and also declared "BPA a toxic substance to human health and the environment". In 2012 the US Food and Drug Administration issued a similar ban on BPA in baby bottles. Concerned that BPA was not yet banned in lunch containers in Canada and the US and that many "BPA-free" containers were merely substituting one hormone-mimicking chemical for another, and shown to be no safer (UCalgary 2015), Nita was keen to find food containers without any hormone-disrupting chemicals, for kids and adults! 

Equally important was finding a solution to her cluttered storage drawer of stained, warped, odorous containers and a solution to excessive plastic being dumped in landfill from food storage. What Nita really wanted was easy-to-use, easy-to-clean, easy-to-store containers that were easy-on-the-environment too. Ones that look good, are good for you and good for the environment! When she couldn't find what she was looking for, she created them. 

DALCINI™ Stainless was launched in 2015 and are the award-winning makers of Safe, Simple and Sustainable housewares.
