THE WAREWASHING SOLUTION
One of the most important factors the university considers when choosing new equipment is its environmental impact.
“The University of Chester is very committed to meeting its sustainability targets,” says Paula. “We’ve been looking at everything we do to find ways of reducing our environmental impact, from where we source our food, to the materials we use.”
This has involved some very innovative thinking. “We replaced polystyrene takeout boxes with recyclable alternatives, which won us a Green Gown award,” says Paula. “We’ve also installed a waste digester which converts food waste to grey water. Changes like these have helped us to greatly reduce our waste output.”
Recently the university changed the chemicals it uses for cleaning. Picking the right products was challenging, as Paula explains. “We needed products that helped us to maintain high levels of hygiene without the environmental impact of traditional cleaning chemicals.”
After careful consideration of the options, they chose the Pro Green range from Bidfood Catering Services, a complete range of environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals created in partnership with warewashing experts Winterhalter.
