HAYWARD, Calif.-CaliBowl/Simple Wave LLC's product line is now manufactured in Union City, Calif. Previously, its entire product line was made in China.
"It's an optimum time for us to transition back to the U.S.," Jeff Bollengier, Simple Wave LLC president and co-founder, told HFN. "We found a local U.S. manufacturer that was running at a lower capacity," [so] we pulled all [of our] manufacturing equipment out of China."
The CaliBowl is a bowl with an inward-curving lip, to prevent food from spilling while eating.
