from Grocery Headquarters
The NPD Group Inc., a global information company, reports that U.S. sales of small kitchen appliances grew 15 percent to $2.5 billion in the first half of 2013 compared to the same time period one year ago. "The small kitchen appliance industry continues to reap the rewards from product innovation in specialty appliances, nutrition and diet trends, and the consumers' desire to replicate away-from-home in the home," said Debra Mednick, executive director of The NPD Group Inc.
