stepped into her new role of mother —The year prior, Health Canada banned the use of

Bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles. In 2012, the US FDA followed in Canada’s footsteps, with a

similar ban. but despite both countries declaring BPA a toxic substance to human health and

the environment, neither Canada nor the US had yet, extended the ban to food containers.

easy to clean and chemical-free food containers, Nita launched DALCINI ® Stainless housewares in 2015; a safe, simple, sustainable solution, which garnered Nita the coveted Startup Award at the 2016 Mompreneur Awards.
