Thrilled to win GOTY Awards

Overjoyed Gift of the Year (GOTY) Award winners have been celebrating following The Gift Awards last week (May 12). The winner of the Kitchen & Dining category, Halo Dish covers are described as “genuinely unique” by Clayspoon’s co-founder and md Katharine Chapman, who collected the award

“I was absolutely thrilled to win, and also very surprised because there were some incredible products in our category!” states Katharine. “It was a really tough competition, but it was Halo’s night to shine. I think the fact that we won is testament to a genuinely unique and special product. A reusable cotton dish cover means less single use plastic, which in itself is commendable. I’m honoured to be a part of this wonderful story that has such a positive impact, while looking great on your dining table.”

A milestone moment for Spice Kitchen.”
