    The PURELL® Brand Offers Solutions to Improve Guest Experience at the National Restaurant Association Show
    Stop by Booth #10527 to check out our no-rinse Foodservice Surface Sanitizer – kills Norovirus in 30 secs.

    AKRON, Ohio (May 15, 2019) – GOJO, the inventors of PURELL® instant hand sanitizer and the global leader in hygiene solutions, is bringing PURELL® foodservice solutions for both front and back of the house to the National Restaurant Association Show. The PURELL® brand will have our subject matter experts (SME) at our booth #10527 to showcase our safe and effective products for surfaces and hands.

    “The PURELL® brand delivers peace of mind to our customers who want the hygiene products they use for their hands and surfaces to be worry-free for them, and do what they are intended to do – kill germs like norovirus and listeria that can make their guests and employees sick, and put their reputation at risk,” said Diane Collins, GOJO senior director of market development.

    The perception that PURELL® – the brand trusted by hospitals, schools and restaurants for decades – brings to a restaurant is also a welcome sign; 86 percent of people surveyed said that seeing PURELL® products left them feeling that the restaurant makes food safety and cleanliness a priority.[1]

    “While foodservice may not seem to have the same risk as hospitals, foodborne illnesses can be severe, and the number of foodborne disease outbreaks continue year to year unchanged – so more must be done,” said Hal King, Ph.D. president and CEO of Public Health Innovations. “The purpose of traditional interventions to prevent cross-contamination, like hand hygiene and hard-surface sanitation, is to reduce the load of pathogenic microorganisms on hands and in the foodservice environment which then will reduce the risk of cross-contamination of food. Cross-contamination events and foodborne disease outbreaks can significantly be reduced with proper cleaning and sanitizing of food contact and non-food contact surfaces and hands using a food safety management system.”

    PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer is a one-step sanitizer and cleaner that is powerful enough to kill norovirus in 30 seconds and Hepatitis A in 60 seconds, but gentle enough to use on a child’s booster seat, with no rinse required. It’s proven effective on most hard and soft surfaces, and its light, fragrance-free scent is ideal for use around guests. It holds the coveted EPA Design for the Environment (DfE) Certification, and as it contains no harsh chemicals, no handwashing is required after use.

    PURELLTM  Body Fluid Spill kits safely remove vomit, blood, feces and other body fluids. At the core of each kit is PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer, which works together with a comprehensive set of components to protect your employees and guests, and reduce the risk of foodborne illness outbreaks.

    Stop by booth #10527 to talk with our SMEs, get your travel-size sample of our Foodservice Surface Sanitizer, and find out how to have a 16 oz. bottle shipped directly to your office or restaurant.
