About the Founder
Nita Tandon
Founder & CEO, Dalcini Inc.
nita@dalcinistainless.com
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.
