SYDNEY: At today’s half year profit announcement, Harvey Norman general manager, David Ackery, discussed the possibility of the retailer taking on exclusive distribution of a new dishwasher product from Italy he says “could be as big in the market as (Fisher & Paykel’s) DishDrawer”.

“It presents a huge opportunity,” he said.

If the retailer decides to take on the dishwasher, Ackery hopes to have it exclusively tested through four to five franchises before potentially releasing it to other retailers.
