DALCINI Stainless

DALCINI Stainless -  Award-Winning Food Storage & Home Organization company offering benefits to you, your family and the planet.

Nita Tandon stepped away from her career in biopharma to address the growing concern of Bisphenol A (BPA). Her concern was that despite Canada declaring BPA toxic to human health and the environment, BPA (and the toxic substitutions) are still widely used in food storage.  Additionally, Food Packaging and Food Storage are shown to be primary contributors to the landfill crisis. Nita knew there had to be a better way and set out to create healthy, sustainable, practical food storage solutions.

DALCINI™ Stainless was launched in 2015 and continues to see impressive growth. The products are sold in Canada, USA and New Zealand with retail partners of Indigo, Simons, Well.ca, Lowes USA and others. The products have been featured on Good Morning America, at the MTV Movie Awards and has also been used by Oprah!

Workshop: The Power of Authenticity: Growing Your Business Your Way

Presented by Export Development Canada

Being authentic and staying true to your values isn’t easy when growing a business in Canada or abroad. For many women entrepreneurs, making a positive change in the world, by solving a community gap, addressing social justice or reducing their impact on the environment is a top priority. But there’s no one-size-fits-all way to achieve success. It takes perseverance, trusted networks and unwavering confidence to grow a sustainable, values-based company.

Join Myriam Francisque, EDC’s national lead of Inclusive trade, Black and racialized exporters, for a 45-minute chat with three inspiring women entrepreneurs who grew their business based on their values and discovered it gave them a competitive advantage. Though they are at different stages of their business journey, our panelists never lost track of their vision as they scaled their business and expanded into new markets. To help women owners of small- to medium-sized companies, like themselves, they’ll share their stories and offer advice on how to:

  • Leverage authentic storytelling to strengthen your brand for long-term success
  • Position your business for its unique value proposition and use it as competitive advantage
  • Create meaningful change and sustainable growth without compromising your values
  • Find partners and clients aligned with your vision who can champion your business
