Libbey Brings Form and Function with Serve It
Serveware Collection Extends Line
TOLEDO, OHIO, October 17, 2017 – (NYSE MKT: LBY) Consumers agree that when it comes to the kitchen, space is at a premium, regardless of how big their home is. They want fewer but more versatile items to help keep clutter out of the cabinets. These products need to be multi-functional and easy to store as well as attractive enough to be presented at the table. Libbey® listened and has extended its Serve It™ collection with more items that are both beautiful and practical.
The line of oven-to-table glass serveware can go from prep to presenting to storage, without having to dirty a dozen dishes in the process. Each product is made of tempered glass with the durability to withstand temperatures in the oven, fridge, freezer and microwave. The collection is designed for performance and feature easy-on, easy-off, leak-proof lids. The line extensions include serving bowls, platters, salad sets, nesting bowls and chip ‘n dip sets for every entertaining occasion.
“So much of the glass food storage in the market has lids and can be used on the table, but it doesn’t deliver a stylish presentation,” said Greg Pax, director, retail new product development at Libbey Inc. “The Serve It collection combines the affordable function of serveware with beautiful design to place on the table. The addition of the leak-resistant lids means leftovers go straight from the table to the fridge for easy cleanup. The latest additions to the collection provide the complete home entertaining solution, from salads and fruit to chips and dips.”
The extensions to Serve It will be available to retailers in the first quarter of 2018. For more information, visit retail.libbey.com.
