Family always come first for us. Cousins first, founders second.

When both of us became parents, we always shared parenting tips. And the one thing in common is this unconditional love and effort to provide the best for our children. What we thought was impossible, such as maintaining calmness when the child is undergoing a meltdown, became possible.

As the 2nd generation in the family business of manufacturing melamine dinnerware, we saw tableware as it is but never more. It was not until both our young toddlers turned two years old and began to explore the world as their own that we saw how a normal mealtime conversation could become a prelude to another meatime battlefield.

That was when we saw how our tableware and its safety properties could make a difference for other families with young kids. And for the love of our toddlers and connection to tableware, we started theplatestory.com
