TasteTro Spice System Selected as Finalist for Global Innovation Award in Product Design Excellence

CALGARY, February 10, 2018  – Each year the International Housewares Association (IHA) looks across the world and acknowledges the very best in product design and exceptional retailing practices through the Global Innovation Awards.  This year, TasteTro is pleased to announce that the TasteTro Spice System has been selected by the IHA as a finalist in Product Design for the Smart Home Category.


Over the past four years, TasteTro has been developing their innovative smart kitchen appliance with the eye to revolutionizing how people use and access spices. TasteTro incorporates RFID and Bluetooth technologies into the small appliance and brings a portal of flavor exploration, convenience and customization directly to the consumer’s kitchen counter.  At the touch of a button, consumers have access to over 50 pre-programmed spice blends, all paired with easy-to-prepare snack and meal recipes.  The startup is positioned as a potential disruptor to the $10 billion packaged spice industry.


Retailers from across the world will be introduced to the TasteTro Spice System at the upcoming International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago from March 10th to 13th, 2018.  Consumers will be able to pre-order the TasteTro Spice System this spring.
