Jangro offers tailored solutions to support catering businesses
The catering industry has been fundamentally threatened by the Covid-19 pandemic, with tighter restrictions set to stay in place for the foreseeable future.
Jangro, the UK and Ireland's largest network of independent janitorial suppliers, has expanded its comprehensive range of solutions to help businesses in the food industry continue trading throughout (and beyond) these uncertain times.
Jangro can offer everything the sector needs to adapt its processes and keep trading, from sustainable takeaway packaging, to effective cleaning and hygiene supplies and processes.
During the initial lockdown, many bars and restaurants adapted their offering to include takeaway and delivery options. With a second lockdown across some parts of the UK and no confirmed end date for tighter restrictions everywhere, catering businesses should review their packaging options. With sustainability, as well as safety, high on the agenda, meals should be provided in environmentally friendly food containers.
To help reduce the amount of plastic pollution, Jangro offers a range of sustainable packaging, ideal for hot and cold foods, which is made from reused board, and is recyclable, compostable and fully biodegradable. The lids are made from recycled plastics (rPET) and are also recyclable themselves.
Jangro can also help establishments implement effective cleaning and hygiene measures. As well as specialist food packaging, its comprehensive 'Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies' catalogue contains a wide range of high quality and effective products and supplies, including Jangro's Enviro H6 General All Purpose Sanitiser, which has been proven to kill coronavirus.
Jangro also recently extended its innovative range of digital wall charts to include the hospitality sector. These cleaning guides include colour coded plans to ensure a safe and hygienic working environment is maintained. As well as their bespoke copy, the customer automatically receives a full health and safety compliance pack, comprising of relevant safety data sheets, product user guides, and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) risk assessments of the products that feature on their chart.
“Covid-19 is one of the most significant threats that the catering industry has ever faced,” says Jo Gilliard, CEO at Jangro. “With mass gatherings banned for now, even when people are able to socialise more freely, it is likely that a coronavirus hangover will remain - that is, a consumer nervousness around the health and hygiene of an establishment. Many will still prefer to order takeout to enjoy in the safety of their own home, whilst others will assess the cleanliness of an establishment before deciding to visit.
“The way that the catering industry has adapted in the face of such challenges this year has been impressive. Jangro is here to help support these businesses make sustainable choices, and when it comes to cleaning and hygiene, stay compliant and help them to build trust with their customers.”
