Today’s products include parts from the world over — that’s globalization

Browsing through a small, upscale kitchen shop while on vacation, I looked at a fancy immersion blender — you know one of those hand-held mixers that looks like a stick.

The box’s label told me that the blender had been designed in Italy. And that it had been “Made in PRC.”

I found it interesting that the company chose to emphasize the location in which the product was designed, while avoiding saying straight out that it was made in China.
